Jason Day Holds The Third Round Lead At Wells Fargo

Peterson's 2 eagles carries him to lead at Quail Hollow

Jason Day sputtered at the start and hit his stride on the back nine for a four-under 67 to build a two-shot lead going into the final round of the PGA Tour's Wells Fargo Championship.

Fellow American Peter Uihlein shot the round of the day, a nine-under 62 at Quail Hollow to put himself into a tie for third alongside England's Paul Casey who still has a shot at the title. He shot 62, one off Rory McIlroy's course record, and wound up three shots out of the lead and in the penultimate group.

Early in the morning, the weather conditions were flawless for shooting a low score and 2 guys in particular took advantage.

Adrift of overnight leader Peter Malnati by one shot at the halfway mark, Day's second successive 67 - which included five birdies and just one bogey - saw the 2015 US PGA Championship victor put himself in the box seat for his first title since January's Farmers Insurance Open.

He was at 10-under 203.

He plays his first tournament since Augusta this week at Quail Hollow, in a tournament he has won twice, and made a startling comment about two majors he has already won. Everyone will start Saturday within 10 shots of the lead.

Watney, whose last win came in 2012, finished strongly to claim second place on eight under, draining four birdies over the final six holes for a five-under 66 as he overcame a mid-round wobble with a double-bogey seven at the 10th.

McIlroy, at three-under 210, had four birdies in a row before also bogeying the last.

Phil Mickelson played his way into contention with a seven-under 64 after finishing the first two rounds two-over par.

Tiger Woods, meanwhile, finally broke into the 60s as he moved into a tie for 31st - nine strokes from the lead. back at Wells Fargo for the first time since 2012, the 14-time major victor posted a three-under 68.

Walking off the 18th green, Uihlein was probably looking at just two things. McIlroy three-putted the 18th and still shot 5 under. It bounded over the stream to the other side. He missed birdie putts of 24 feet and 40 feet on Nos.

After falling to 1 over in his round after a bogey on the fifth hole, Day's approach into the ninth green came within two feet from landing for an eagle.

"That was going to be a devastating hole", he said.

Uihlein, who is seeking his first PGA Tour win, didn't have much time to celebrate before being taken to be randomly drug tested.

The 28-year-old is playing his first season on the PGA TOUR after graduating from last year's Web.com Tour Finals, where he won the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship.

Malnati leads at 7 under par, while Jason Day (69-67) and rookie Aaron Wise (68-68) are one shot back. "I'm driving it better than I ever have before in my career". I definitely think it's just around the corner.
