Quail Hollow Championship 2010: Five Contenders Not Named Tiger or Phil

Yes, it was one round. We've all seen Tiger Woods make up nine shots in a front nine.

The excitement is remarkably subdued at the Quail Hollow Championship this week in Woods' return to the pedestrian PGA Tour schedule. Maybe that's why the irons were all over the rough, the drives weren't so straight and the putts were coming up short.

Whatever the reasons, Tiger Woods shot a 2-over-par 74 and Masters champion Phil Mickelson shot a 2-under-par 70 to start significantly off the pace at Quail Hollow.

The leaderboard in Charlotte is full of those names you'd expect in a non-major week. Let's imagine for a moment that Tiger's troubles don't improve and Phil's dehydration issues keep him out of the money.

Is it someone among the Round 1 leaders or another name a bit off the pace that will make a run this weekend?

Let's take a look at five guys who you need to know about at Quail Hollow.
