With some of the biggest names in the game lurking, Andrew Loupe holds a 1-stroke lead at the halfway point of the Wells Fargo Championship. Loupe shot rounds of 65-71 to get to 8-under par for the tournament, one shot clear of Roberto Castro and two up on Chesson Hadley and Mark Hubbard.
It was Castro who had the Swing of the Day, a 221-yard eagle on the 18th hole. Not only is the 18th one of the most difficult holes on the Quail Hollow property, it’s one of the most difficult holes on the entire PGA Tour. Castro had no problem with it.
221 yards to 0 yards.

While the top of the leaderboard is lacking the star power that we’ve come to expect at Quail Hollow, those names are lurking ominously just a bit further down the board. Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler lead that contingent at 5-under par through 36 holes. Daniel Berger, Scott Langley and Brian Harman are also on 5-under.
Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy are 2-under par and in need of a solid showing on moving day. Adam Scott is at 1-under par.
