Misty rain, preferred lies on two holes

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The first round of the Wells Fargo Championship began Thursday under gray skies and misty rain with high temperatures only expected to reach the mid-60s.

Drier air is expected to move in overnight, bringing partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the low 70s. As that high pressure system weakens Saturday, a cold front returns, bringing cloudy skies once again, as well as temperatures in the 60s and the chance of rain each afternoon.

In addition, tournament officials have decided to play preferred lies in closely mown areas on the eighth and 10th holes for all four rounds. The decision was made due to sod damage in certain areas. The greens on those two holes had to be resodded last week.
