Day, the 2015 PGA Championship victor, held off Americans Aaron Wise and Nick Watney with a final-round two-under par 69 to finish 72 holes on 12-under 272 for a two-stroke victory at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, North Carolina.

He has won four out of five times when he's had the 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour, and it helps that he doesn't have too much experience behind him. At the time, Day ranked 106th in greens in regulation and was not happy with either the trajectory or spin rate of his previous set.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Quail Hollow was softer and shorter, producing one low score after another before the final groups even started Saturday in the Wells Fargo Championship.

PGA Tour rookie Aaron Wise almost had a collapse late until he salvaged a most unlikely bogey.

The 28-year-old Uihlein used a stretch from No. 5 to 10 where he shot 7 under to start his charge, and then followed up with a pair of birdies on Nos.

The Australian won by two shots from Americans Nick Watney and Aaron Wise, carding 12-under in a week when his putter was white hot.

"This is probably one of the best wins I've ever had because of how hard everything was today", Day said. All three were tied at 2 over to start the day.

Tiger Woods, meanwhile, was another who fought back in round three to make the move back under par following a three under 68.

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. "I know those greens, I know the putts, but you have to hit the ball well there at the TPC - you just can't get away with hitting it poorly".

Townend also took fifth place with his second ride, Ballaghmor Class, as 11 British pairs finished in the top 20. Asked about his warning, Townend said: "I am who I am".

"I definitely think it's just around the corner, it's not too far".

Phil Mickelson opened with two bogeys, failing to capitalize on the momentum from his third-round 64.

Mickelson was among those four shots behind.

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.

Playing in just a handful of PGA Tour events past year, Uihlein qualified for the season-ending Web.com Tour Finals, won the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship and earned his PGA Tour card for the first time.

Uihlein had five consecutive birdies from the fifth, an eagle at 10 and added two more birdies at the 14th and 15th as he missed McIlroy's 2015 Quail Hollow record by one shot.

And yet McIlroy admitted that he is really struggling with his game at the moment following his third round showing, which included seven birdies and two bogeys. Also three shots back were Bryson DeChambeau (66), Paul Casey (69), and Wise.

Greg Chalmers is in 25th position while Adam Scott made the 36 hole cut but was not able to advance to Sunday play after his round of 72 left him amongst those restricted due to field size numbers.
