Day seizes PGA control at Quail Hollow

Woods, who finished Round 3 of the Wells Fargo Championship at 1 under, nine shots behind leader Jason Day, said he made some tweaks to his putting stroke.

"The biggest thing is that my short game has been spot on the last three days", Day said.

Woods' first nine holes Saturday were unspectacular, but sufficient. He ranks 86th in the FedExCup after finishing in the top 10 in two events in Asia last fall.

Woods posted six birdies throughout his third round and was another to be undone on the final hole, ending with a bogey five as a result of a disappointing three-putt.

After four opening pars, he went birdie insane.

"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". I've just got to focus.

Casey dropped two early shots playing alongside Day before steadying the ship with three pars and a superb eagle at the 10th - where he hit his second shot to two feet - for a 69.

However, I'm not sure what was it was her feet and the stage. "You're such a dream to me", she wrote (thankfully not upside down). Within 24 hours of its release, " No Tears Left To Cry " managed to reach number one on iTunes in over 80 countries.

The former Players Championship victor took off shoes and socks and stood in a small creek to play a shot to the green at the 18th hole, eventually coming through with a par putt to stand at 10-under 203. Then No. 14, which he had bogeyed a day earlier. Now sitting at 14th in the Official World Golf Rankings, he said the goal is to get back there now healthy after an injury-riddled season a year ago.

"I would probably prefer more of the PGA setup", said Fowler, who tied for fifth at the '17 PGA but also has three top-10 finishes at the Wells Fargo including a victory in 2012. "I know that there's a bunch of players in front of me that are trying to do the exact same thing and the guys behind me are trying to do the same thing".

Uihlein didn't expect much Saturday, but then a 7-under-par stretch over six holes that included an eagle changed everything. Tiger Woods didn't make up enough ground and was nine back. Uihlein had a 62, one off the course record. "You're trying to nearly get through the first six holes". "Got a tap-in birdie on nine and a good shot down the middle on 10".

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. Today I was pulling them trying to hit them harder. and release the toe of my putter and I just wasn't doing it right. "I'm close, I'm hitting the ball well enough to contend, to win this golf tournament, but I haven't made the putts".

Woods and the rest of the field found a tamer Quail Hollow on Saturday.

"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.

The former world number one admitted that he was struggling with his putting this week but put his disappointing second round behind him to shoot three under and get to one under par overall. 5, 7 and 8. Save those last two holes, and vintage Tiger Woods carries some stream into the final round.
