Jason Day takes two-shot lead into final round of Wells Fargo Championship

07 May 2018

Two bogeys over the last three holes gave him a 70. He didn't birdie any of the par 5s after being in greenside bunkers on two of them and leaving himself a 6-foot birdie putt on the other. As for the putting, Woods said he made an adjustment that made him "more handsy, " allowing for a firmer stroke. "I'm just going to try to embrace everything that comes with tomorrow, and hope I have a chance down the last".

Day carded 10-under through 54 holes.

"I didn't think there was a round lower than 4, 5 under out there and then [Uihlein] shoots 9 [under] and I got it to 7", said Mickelson, who is alone in 10th place five strokes back.

Peter Malnati led by one shot entering the third round. As a testament to the conditions, all he did was shrug.

As if to prove the point on Saturday, officials put the fun back in Quail Hollow, with 31 of 87 players posting scores in the 60s and more roars than this slice of North Carolina has seen since 2016, the last time the Wells Fargo was played at the venerable club before it underwent an intensive nip/tuck to prepare for the PGA.

Among those arrested was protest organiser Alexei Navalny , the anti-corruption campaigner who is Mr Putin's most prominent foe. The authorities regard most of the protests as illegal, arguing that their time and place was not agreed with them beforehand.

Tiger Woods finally got going on the back nine with three straight birdies but a three-putt bogey on the final hole gave him a 68 to be nine shots behind. He was nine shots behind. He had a pair of double bogeys, shot 75 and fell seven shots behind.

PGA Tour rookie Aaron Wise was cruising along on Saturday at three under on his round and nine under for the tournament through 15 holes.

Wise, the NCAA champion from OR two years ago, pulled his approach left of the 18th green. That is one shot off the Quail Hollow course record. With his ball on a sharp downslope a few feet from the rock-framed banks of the stream, he considered a penalty drop that would have taken double bogey out of the picture.

He hit the next one across the green to 40 feet, and knocked that in for bogey. I knew things were going to turn around.

Day is in charge, but not in the clear. The five-time tour victor has just one top-25 finish this season, coming a few weeks ago at the Valero Texas Open.

The Cavs shot just a tick under 60% for the game. "I'm just so disappointed in myself in that moment", Ibaka said on his benching. Only five teams since 2012 have rallied from 0-2 to win a series , a list that includes the Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals.

The 2017 John Deere Classic victor can notch his second win on tour if he's able to catch Day on Sunday, and if he continues to putt well (2nd in the field in strokes-gained/putting), he knows he's got a chance. The previous player to win on the same course where he won a major the previous year was Jack Nicklaus in the 1973 Bing Crosby National Pro-am at Pebble Beach.

"This is exciting times for us", Day said.

He already has won this year at Torrey Pines in a playoff over Alex Noren. The former world No. 1 concluded his round 12 strokes behind leader Jason Day.

"I would probably prefer more of the PGA setup", said Fowler, who tied for fifth at the '17 PGA but also has three top-10 finishes at the Wells Fargo including a victory in 2012.

"I feel like I'm hitting the ball well enough and just trending in the right direction for next week", said Woods, who has won 79 career PGA Tour events and 105 professional tournaments overall. "And my irons have gotten substantially better over the course of time, and then I've been making a lot of putts, so that's nice". "I just had to be patient". "It's not too far".
