Woods, McIlroy just make cut as Malnati leads

Cheeky chips and poor putts sum up Tiger Woods' performance in the Wells Fargo Championship.

Peter Uihlein carded a career-best 9-under 62 to move to 7 under, just three shots off the lead and tied with Bryson DeChambeau, Paul Casey and Aaron Wise.

"I binge-watched a couple of shows, read a couple of books, drank a few bottles of wine, " McIlroy said.

"Once I got back into my routine I was fine".

"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. He finally made one, and stretched out both hands in mock celebration when it dropped.

"I was sort of holding my game together and on Sunday - under the pressure of chasing Patrick down - it just never clicked for me". As for the putting, Woods said he made an adjustment that made him "more handsy, " allowing for a firmer stroke. "I told him after he hit his first tee shot, 'Well, you're kind of stuck now'".

A BOGEY ON the 18th took just a little shine off Rory McIlroy's sizzling third-round 66 at the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow.

Malnati rarely is without a smile, even though this is the a year ago of his exemption from winning an opposite-field event in MS in the fall of 2015.

Anirban Lahiri missed the cut earlier and will now feature in the Players Championships next week.

He is not long or regarded as a pure striker of the golf ball, which is not a great combination at this level. "You catch yourself. I was trying to immerse myself in anything but golf at that point ..."

"I always have fun".

"I'm on a hot streak right now", Woods said. "But having fun and being relaxed aren't the same thing". "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". This puts Woods at 1-under for the tournament.

He hit the next one across the green to 40 feet, and knocked that in for bogey.

And then came his par save from the bunker, which felt like a birdie.

Day did his part with five birdies on his last 10 holes and a daring shot on the 18th when he stood barefoot in the creek to play a shot onto the green.

Woods has taken 64 putts over two rounds and was at 2-over 144, nine shots behind Peter Malnati. Either way, the characters are in place for a compelling Sunday even if Woods (nine back) is too far behind to win.

Day bogeyed the fifth before picking up that shot at the ninth and continued the upward trend with birdies at the 10th, 12th, 14th and 15th to turn in for 32.

Last year's PGA Championship, which was held at Quail Hollow, left many feeling like they'd just gone 72 holes in a title bout that should have ended much earlier with a towel and an extended stay in the trainer's room. Maybe I can play a low one and see what happens.

"I've always enjoyed the golf course, through the different variations of it, from 2010 all the way up until now".
