Jason Day takes lead after Round 3 at Wells Fargo Championship

Jason Day takes lead after Round 3 at Wells Fargo Championship

Tiger Woods had a three-hole stretch with consecutive birdies on the back nine on Saturday, including just missing an eagle putt.

Woods holed a 13-foot birdie putt on his final hole yesterday to guarantee that he'll stick around for the weekend at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Phil Mickelson shot 7-under 64 to get to 5 under for the week.

The 30-year-old major victor also drained a 8m birdie putt on the par three 17th, one of three holes known as the "Green Mile" due to their reputation as the toughest finishing stretch on the PGA Tour.

Not only did he squander a handful of excellent birdie chances, several of them did not even threaten the hole.

It was a tough adjustment for Woods and everyone else.

"I feel more comfortable on faster greens", Woods said on Friday.

If that's the case, those giving chase would probably opt for the softer side of Quail Hollow for the final round, just don't allow yourself to be lulled into a false sense of ease. By the time overnight leader Peter Malnati teed off he was already sharing the top spot with Uihlein.

School's 'mystery pooper' identified as nearby district's superintendent
Tramaglini lives several miles from the school but is superintendent of a different school district, in Kenilworth. The district said unpaid leave would only occur, "in the face of indictments or tenure charges".

A further birdie on the 12th had seen McIlroy get to four-under heading to the last and despiting finishing with a disappointing bogey, he remains well in the hunt. "I know what to expect there". But I'm just taking tomorrow that I've got to try and extend that lead every single time I'm up against someone.

Countrymen Peter Uihlein, who narrowly missed the course record with a nine-under 62, and Bryson DeChambeau (66) joined Wise and Englishman Paul Casey (69) in the logjam at 206.

Among the early starters, McIlroy wasted little time reacquainting himself with the venue, as he struck a birdie on the par four second hole when he pitched to within 10 feet from 138 yards and stroked home with the minimum of fuss. I've played well in spurts there.

Hours earlier, Woods stood over an 18-foot putt on No. 9, his final hole of another ordinary round that up until then featured no birdies. "I still didn't have enough pace on a couple that I left on the lip".

His 64 matches his lowest score since opening the 2016 Open with a 63 at Royal Troon (he shot 64 past year in the final round at the Greenbrier) and he did it without a bogey. McIlroy's score came before a course change at Quail Hollow, when par was 72.

Niemann played 18 practice holes Tuesday with Chilean countryman Guillermo Pereira, who made the tournament through a Monday qualifier at Gaston Country Club.

The Rory McIlroy Majors remarks irked many as he casually added: 'I don't care about the US Open or the Open Championship.
