Jason shot a third round -4 under par 67 to lead the Wells Fargo Championship after 54 holes with a -10 under par total, giving him a two-stroke advantage going into the final round tomorrow;
“Today it was a bit of a struggle through eight holes.”
“I hit a nice shot into the ninth hole, and a good drive down 10 started getting things in the right direction.”
“I knew things were going to turn around.”
“I just stayed in my lane.”
“I’ve kind of recommitted myself to try to get back to number one.”
Nick Watney, USA, holds second place at -8 under, after his third round -5 under par 66, overcoming a double bogey on the par five 10th hole.
Four players are tied in third position at -7 under par, Peter Uihlein, with a marvelous -9 under 62 today, just one short of Rory McIlroy’s course record, Bryson DeChambeau, -5 under 66 and Aaron Wise, -1 under 70, these three from the USA, they are joined by Paul Casey who recorded -2 under 69 today.
Tiger, is not out of the woods yet, -3 under 68 today leaving at -1 under for the tournament, while Rory went ten shots better than yesterday’s 76 to signed for a -5 under 66 today, to be at -3 under in total, both these boys too far back to make it to the top tomorrow, or maybe not according to Tiger;
“I’m hitting the ball well enough to contend, to win this golf tournament, but I just haven’t made putts.”
“Maybe I can play a low one and see what happens. I feel like I’m hitting the ball well enough and just trending in the right direction for next week.”
