Day's strong finish seals Wells Fargo win

Tough greens take toll as Anirban Lahiri misses cut, Tiger Woods makes it

Tough greens take toll as Anirban Lahiri misses cut, Tiger Woods makes it

Langer was at nine-under 135 and had a one-shot lead over three players after he followed up his course-record-tying opening-round 63 by making just two birdies and two bogeys at The Woodlands Country Club. He made the putt to take a two-shot lead, becoming the only player to birdie the hole in the final round.

Day finished at 12-under 272.

"It's just one of those weeks, and now I'm on to the next week, which is nice", he said. His putter saved him in the final round as he gained over four strokes on the field on a day when his long game was a wasteland. Back at Wells Fargo for the first time since 2012, the 14-time major victor posted a three-under 68.

"The biggest thing is, youre playing mental games with yourself", he said.

"You're just going to have to go after it (Sunday), hit a lot of greens, make some putts and see where you are coming around 15, and if you have to go for it and make eagle, try and make eagle, just go for it". "I just kept on saying to myself, 'forget about those thoughts, keep pushing, keep pushing.' It was great to birdie 16 and 17".

There, Day slammed the door shut for his 12th career win, making birdie at No. 16 and then almost holing his tee shot at the par-3 17th, the ball hitting the pin. Day finished No. 1 in strokes gained around the green and No. 2 in strokes gained putting on the week.

Day caught his break when the ball bounced four times and hit the flagstick, drawing a huge roar from the crowd.

"Struggled with my game, struggled to get my ball in the fairway, made some pretty bad mistakes, didn't birdie any of the par 5s", McIlroy said. The former world No. 1 also won the Farmers Insurance Open earlier this year after a winless 2017.

The Australian birdied the 16th and then took aim at the par-three 17th hole with a seven-iron from 230 yards. Miraculous.@JDayGolf now leads by 2.

Wise, seeking his first PGA win, fired a 68 to settle for a career-best second on 274 with Watney, who was chasing his sixth PGA title and first since 2012, closing with a 60-foot birdie putt to match him for the runner-up spot. Watney drained a 60-footer for birdie at the last to shoot 69 and join Wise at T-2. Day pumped his fist and cheered on his playing partner before he rolled in the winning putt. After two days of quiet crowds and leaderboard congestion driven by demanding conditions, the third round felt more familiar.

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.

Phil Mickelson shot a 64, his best score of the year. Rory McIlroy concluded an up-and-down week with a 71 to finish at 3-under. Woods challenges the tour's top talent again starting Thursday at The Players Championship, when he will be paired alongside fellow former Players champions and United States compatriots Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler. Tiger Woods was a nonfactor, shooting 74 to finish 14 back. He failed to make a birdie in the final round of a tournament for the first time since 2014.

"I didn't putt well again", Woods said. "I missed a lot of greens".
