Tiger Woods Just Finished His 3rd Round At The Wells Fargo Championship

I leave it right where I need to leave it, right below the hole, and I miss it.

Woods made his only birdie on his final hole Friday in the Wells Fargo Championship, an 18-foot putt on the par-4 ninth hole that assured he would make the cut. Uihlein had a 62, one off the course record.

"Once I got back into my routine I was fine". He stretched out both arms in mock celebration after his 2-over 73.

"Today the first eight holes were a struggle for me", Day said.

In the end the cut came at three over, a mark that saw all four Irish golfers in action make the cut. Or that he was nine shots out of the lead in a tie for 48th, his worst position through 36 holes in his last five tournaments. Rickie Fowler might have been closer than six shots if not for a four-putt double bogey from 20 feet on No. 17 and he is T-11th. When he missed that, too, Woods later feigned tossing the putter in a trash bin as he went to sign for a score that he felt should have been much better than 68. McIlroy is seven behind and T-16th.

The five-time major champion has never won at Quail Hollow, but did have a runner-up finish in 2010, finishing four strokes back of two-time victor McIlroy, who shot a five-under 66 on Saturday and is at three-under 210.

"I've kind of recommitted myself to try to get back to No. 1", Day said. Now you're just getting greedy.

Griffin played the first seven holes Thursday at 3-over before disaster struck on the par-4 Nos.

He is not long or regarded as a pure striker of the golf ball, which is not a great combination at this level.

Deeply committed Big Mac fan eats his 30000th burger
Over the almost 46 years since he had the first Big Mac, Gorske had only gone a total of eight days without eating one. That includes a 1982 day in which a snowstorm shut down the restaurant, as well as the day his mom died in 1998.

"I always have fun. I'm super, super excited", Watney said. "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".

Birdies at the fourth and seventh were followed by an eagle at the 10th, where Mickelson holed a 30-footer.

Facing a delicate pitch on the next hole from about 50 yards, to a slightly elevated green with the pin on a slope, he got that to 10 feet and holed the putt.

Jason Day has just wrapped up his second consecutive round of 67 to sit as the outright leader on 10 under par. The last time he played Quail Hollow on a Saturday, he tried to play out of the trees and made an 8 that took him out of contention in the PGA Championship.

Quail Hollow was softer and shorter, producing one low score after another before the final groups even started their final round in the PGA Tour's Wells Fargo Championship.

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

He loves golf. He also is a father - his son was born in October - and he would be just as happy in real estate development with a few friends in Fort Worth, Texas, than chasing around birdies and bogeys from one coast to the other. "It got to the point where I needed to see a bit of daylight and get outside and go for walks and start to do my usual thing and then it sort of went away". That's when he's most engaged in what he's doing on the golf course.

"I don't think about trying to win the Grand Slam".
