Angel Cabrera never knows when he’s going to play his best golf. This could be shaping up as one of those weeks at the Wells Fargo Championship. On a Quail Hollow course that lets the Argentine hit driver on just about every hole, two exquisite short-game shots late in the second round carried Cabrera to a 3-under 69 on Friday and a share of the lead with Martin Flores going into the weekend.
Christ School (Asheville) golfer Jonathan Rector took advantage of a miscue on No. 18 by East Chapel Hill’s Ben Griffin and won the Tarheel Youth Golf Association N.C. High School Invitational at Treyburn Country Club on Monday.

Ben Griffin and Gina Kim of Chapel Hill, Alaina Yeatts of Durham and twins Jessica and Sarah Spicer of Bahama have been named to the 2013 N.C. boys’ and girls’ All-State Golf Teams by the Tarheel Youth Golf Association and the Carolinas Golf Association.
