  • McIlroy in the mix again at Quail Hollow

"I was so close to shooting about 7 under on that back nine, " Woods lamented after the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

Peter Uihlein, who had the low round of the day with a 62, Bryson DeChambeau, Paul Casey of England and Aaron Wise are three shots back at 7 under.

Justin Thomas will be playing this weekend at the Wells Fargo Championship, thanks in part to a little help from his good buddy Rickie Fowler.

Phil Mickelson shot 64.

Woods putted better today, though he still had some tough holes.

"If I can hit a lot more greens and get the proximity closer, I feel like I could, not run away from it, but do pretty well if I can make the putts". But that was surely nullified by the fact he's a menacing presence on the leaderboard once more at a Quail Hollow venue where he already has two wins to his name.

Peter Malnati and Tiger Woods both had reason to celebrate on the ninth green at Quail Hollow at the end of their rounds.


Shane Lowry also demonstrated his fighting qualities after an opening 74, with a one-under-par 70, a round that included three birdies and two bogeys.

Thanks to Jason Day and a kinder, gentler course setup, the storyline jolted forward Saturday, suggesting that the best has been saved for the last day. I knew things were going to turn around. But it got to the point where [his wife] Erica had to drag me out of the house and say, 'OK, we're going to go do something'.

McIlroy gave a glimpse as to why he has an incomparable record over this course since 2010 with two meaty blows into the middle of the par five 10th green - his first hole - to open his birdie account.

"I grew up watching Tiger", Niemann said.

"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. The tie for 48th is Woods' worst position through 36 holes in his last five tournaments dating to a missed cut at Riviera. He'll have a decent shot at a win in his 12th start of the year.

Last August, Day was in contention late in the third round at the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow, until a quadruple bogey at the 18th hole all but ended his chances. He had a pair of double bogeys, shot 75 and fell seven shots behind. "I didn't play well in the pro-am". I just like being at home and I like being around my family and friends more than I like chasing it around here.

The 28-year-old drew criticism from traditionalists after he claimed the Augusta Championship has now become "the biggest golf tournament in the world".
