What Jason Day said after winning the Wells Fargo Championship

Wells Fargo Championship- Preview Day 3

Wells Fargo Championship- Preview Day 3

Jason Day wasn't paying attention, which probably helped. It was one of nine birdies on that hole Sunday.

With AP Photos.Jason Day sputtered at the start and hit his stride on the back nine for a 4-under 67 to build a two-shot lead going into the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

"Today the first eight holes were a struggle for me", Day said.

"I'm very pleased with the way I'm swinging", he said.

For McIlroy, though, it was a particularly disappointing final round after his third round 66 had moved him to the fringes of contention with what he'd termed a "half chance" bid at victory.

Mickelson was among those four shots behind.

But you may be wondering, as I did, where has Watney been over the last few years on the PGA Tour?

On the same course where he contended before faltering late in last year's PGA Championship, the 30-year-old Aussie stumbled with back-to-back bogeys and fell level with Wise with four holes remaining.

Day is in charge, but not in the clear.

It is only two years since Day was dominating the game, but he slightly lost his way and surrendered the spotlight. "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". Sunday, he had six birdies and four bogeys to shoot a 2-under 69, finishing the week with four straight rounds in the 60s.

The long-time rivals, who have been paired together 32 times over 21 PGA stroke-play events, are seldom paired together, in part to spread more popular players across different tee times and areas of the course during tournaments. Uihlein still hasn't won on the PGA Tour.

Englishman Paul Casey also sits on seven under after recovering from two early bogeys to add two birdies and a eagle for a two-under 71.

Day said he drew inspiration from James' Game 3 buzzer-beater against the Toronto Raptors on Saturday in an National Basketball Association playoff game before he pulled off his own clutch shot Sunday.

He already has won this year at Torrey Pines in a playoff over Alex Noren.

Day had talked throughout the week about the confidence he'd regained after his hard 2017 season, but now he was in danger of losing a comfortable lead on the back nine.

"I'd much rather have a great short game than be the best ball-striker on the plane, " he said. I definitely think it's just around the corner. "I had a really nice shot on 5, a good shot at 6, and after that I felt 7 through 15 is kind of where you get after it here". "It's not too far".
