CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Nick Watney answered what he referred to as a wake-up call at the Wells Fargo Championship by taking the lead. Tiger Woods might need one after missing the cut.

Watney had gone nine straight rounds on the PGA Tour without breaking 70 and had failed to crack the top 10 in all nine of his stroke-play tournaments this year. However, an 8-under 64 that gave him a one-shot lead over Webb Simpson going into the weekend.

Woods failed to make a birdie on any of the par 5s or any hole on his back nine, missing the cut by one shot.

INSPERITY CHAMPIONSHIP: At The Woodlands, Texas, Tom Lehman had an eagle and five birdies on the first eight holes on the back nine, then bogeyed the par-4 18th for a 7-under 65 and a one-shot lead after the first round.
