Day seizes the lead at Wells Fargo Championship

At one point midway through the afternoon, four players - Uihlein, Bryson DeChambeau, Charl Schwartzel and Aaron Wise - all held a share of the lead, but it was Jason Day - already a victor this season on the PGA Tour and playing the Wells Fargo Championship for the first time since 2012 - who emerged from the crowd thanks to back-to-back birdies at Nos.

Peter Malnati (67-68) was at his best over the last three holes yesterday and finished with a 3-under 68 for a one-shot lead.

Day made five birdies over his last 10 holes for a 4-under 67, giving him a two-shot lead as he goes for his second PGA Tour victory this year.

Tiger Woods got his putter to cooperate a little better on Saturday. Instead? A first putt that raced nearly 9 feet past the pin, setting Woods up for a three-putt bogey and a complete halt to his momentum.

McIlroy hit a hot streak on the back nine making four consecutive birdies from the 14th to the 17th but could not maintain the momentum on the final hole to threaten the top ten, instead finishing with a bogey on the par four 18th.

Woods has made the cut in five of his six prior PGA starts this year, missing only in February at the event he hosts at Riviera near Los Angeles.

Whether it's because Quail Hollow Club was so unforgiving the first two days or because the game's biggest stars - Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson played early enough Saturday that they were signing their scorecards when the leaders were heading to the first tee - this tournament has been a tick slow to develop its dramatic narrative. Either way, the characters are in place for a compelling Sunday even if Woods (nine back) is too far behind to win. Uihlein wound up three shots behind at 7-under 206 and still hasn't won on the PGA Tour. "Then hit a putt hard off again on the second putt, and the grain just ate it up".

"I'm close", said Woods. "I just couldn't find the face".

"I feel like it's on the end of my tips, it's right on the end of the tip", Day said, rubbing his fingers. Peter Uihlein broad jumped 46 spots up the leaderboard on the wings of his 9-under par 62.

Whilst this may sound bad, it highlights just how much he wants to win the coveted Green Jacket. "I know that there's a bunch of players in front of me that are trying to do the exact same thing and guys behind me trying to do the same thing. It allowed for us to get it a little bit closer, make some birdies".

"I chipped in, there were a couple of balls that hit trees and came back into the fairway, hit it up into the azaleas and got away with it". He shot a 3 under 68 today to get his score into the red as he is at 1 under. 5, 7 and 8, as well as three straight birdies from the 13th through 15th.

McIlroy is one of a number of talented golfers Day will have to hold off in the final round if he wants to parlay his three-round lead into a trophy. The seventh and eighth holes have served Woods well this week, coming into the final round 4 under on that stretch in the first three rounds.
