This week: Wells Fargo Championship, Thursday through Sunday, Quail Hollow Club, Charlotte, N.C.

Moore’s second-round score: 2-under-par 70.

Kelly’s second-round score: 2-over 74.

Stanley’s second-round score: 3-over 75.

Position: Moore (9-under 135) is in seventh alone, three strokes behind leader Nick Watney (132). Stanley (1-over 145) and Kelly (4-over 148) both missed the cut.

Recap: At one point, Moore – one of the overnight co-leaders – was 10-under for the tournament, and held a three-stroke lead over the chasers after an opening-nine 33. Then, controversy struck the Cascade Christian graduate on the 11th green. Right before Moore was set to hit a 17-inch putt for par, his ball settled into a new spot on the green. Moore stopped his stroke, marked his ball – and was eventually issued a one-shot penalty. After his round, Moore appealed the ruling, which he thought had changed this season. It was upheld by PGA Tour officials. “It’s unfortunate that they somehow changed the rules without really changing it,” Moore said. “It’s a little frustrating, ending up one shot worse than I really played.” … After two early birdies, Stanley did not make one the final 13 holes. A killer was a ninth-hole double bogey in which he had to lay up out of the left rough after his drive, and he three-putted from 30 feet. … Kelly was even-par on his round through 12 holes before stumbling late with bogeys at the fourth, sixth and eighth holes.

Moore’s tee time Saturday: To be determined.

Next for Kelly and Stanley: Stanley will be in The Players Championship starting Thursday at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. Kelly will resume the following week at the HP Byron Nelson Championship in Irving, Texas.
