Angel Cabrera hit a pair of superb short-game shots for a 3-under 69 that gave him a share of the lead with Martin Flores on Friday in the Wells Fargo Championship.

Cabrera loves Quail Hollow because he hits driver on just about every hole. But it was a pitch-and-run on the par-5 seventh hole and perfectly judged flop shot out of the rough on the next hole that enabled him to share the lead.

Flores played in the morning and had a 68. They were at 9-under 135, one shot ahead of Justin Rose, who had a 67.

Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy both went the wrong direction. Mickelson shot 75 and was seven shots behind. McIlroy shot 76 and made the cut on the number.
