Late charge lifts Aussie Day to PGA Wells Fargo victory

Rory Mc Ilroy reacts to a putt on the first hole

The 42-year-old golf superstar made some significant progress in that area this weekend, shooting a three-under 68 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club in the USA city of Charlotte, South Carolina.

While Tiger Woods, who just creeped into the weekends play, shot a third-round 68, leaving him on one under heading into the final round.

Woods reeled off three birdies in four holes, his longest putt a 13-footer at the fifth to open the run, but a bogey at the ninth set him back.

The best evidence of this is the fact that Phil Mickelson, a World Golf Hall of Fame player with a five-pack of major championships, has never held the No. 1 ranking and, if he's being honest, probably doesn't feel like it's a glaring hole in his resume. "I knew that if I could just get myself in position. don't do anything too silly out there and find a way to get back into the swing of things, that I could come out of this on the better half".

Day was at 10 under and is on target for a second victory this year. After kicking off in 72-72, the Hall of Famer was T48, one inside the cut line, and fired a season-low 64 to get back into contention.

"I've struggled with the greens being as slow as they are", said Woods, who needed 31 putts on Thursday, when he made three birdies, and 33 putts on Friday.

Excluding one-time expenses such as stock-based compensation, the company lost $3.35 per share. The Model 3 is the most important piece of Tesla's plan to become a mainstream automaker.

"I didn't putt well again", Woods said. "My ball-striking's been fine; I just haven't made anything [on the greens]". If he can get everything else in order, he'll surely be a factor at next week's Players Championship, where he won in 2016.

Lefty has clipped Woods in five of those seven final-round pairings, including the last four dating back to 2007.

If you haven't noticed by now, Jason Day tends to play his best golf on some of the toughest venues on tour, having earned hard-fought victories at courses like Torrey Pines and TPC Sawgrass.

Sitting in a tie for 48th coming into the round, Uihlein felt there was only one way to go for him, but tying his career low round on Tour wasn't on his mind. The situation got more precarious when he missed an 11-foot birdie putt on the week's easiest hole, the par-5 15th. "I was saying earlier I was so close to shooting about 7, 8 under today".

"I made it a little more handsy, kind of like how we used to putt when greens were so slow on public courses", Woods said.

As well as Woods is hitting the ball off the tee - he averaged 313 yards from the tee - he's not been accurate enough to give himself chances to hit it close. "I'm driving it better than I ever have before in my career".
