Streb takes early lead in Charlotte

American Robert Streb rode a little luck and a hot putter into a one-stroke lead after the opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

Streb dominated the par-fives, picking up birdies at all four of the long holes, en route to a bogey-free seven-under-par 65 in pleasant morning conditions at Quail Hollow. The 28-year-old from Oklahoma leads fellow Americans Patrick Reed and Kevin Chappell by one stroke, with local favorite Webb Simpson among a large group two back.
