Woods holed a 13-foot birdie putt on his final hole yesterday to guarantee that he'll stick around for the weekend at the Wells Fargo Championship.
On a day when benign scoring conditions saw a number of players go low, including a 64 from Phil Mickelson and a 66 from Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods joined in on the fun by making six birdies en-route to a three-under 68.
The 30-year-old major victor also drained a 8m birdie putt on the par three 17th, one of three holes known as the "Green Mile" due to their reputation as the toughest finishing stretch on the PGA Tour.
When he sputtered at the start, there was no reason to panic and when he finally picked up his first birdie by blasting a nine-iron out of the rough with the wind at his back from 195 yards to 18 inches on the ninth hole, he was on his way. That putt made certain of it, though Woods made it the cut with one shot to spare. I'm hitting it fine, and I just need to make some putts.
Woods closed with a 74 to finish at two-over-par 286 at Quail Hollow in Charlotte. Fowler is 6 shots off the lead and McIlroy is 7 shots off the lead, but both are capable of going low and winning this tournament.
A victory on Sunday would be Uihlein's first on the PGA Tour, and it would come after a streak of three missed cuts at the Houston Open, Valero Texas Open and Zurich Classic.
He can, however, use Saturday's effort as a springboard to enter the week of the Players Championship in a confident frame of mind. "I know what to expect there. If they have a birdie, I've got to try and somehow make a birdie to extend it".
Crowd favourite Mickelson posted five birdies and an eagle but the round of the day came from Uihlein, who recorded five consecutive birdies followed by an eagle.
"I hit the ball halfway decent today", Woods said. He starts Sunday four shots out of the lead. He had a pair of double bogeys, shot 75 and fell seven shots behind.
The final group of Day and Nick Watney go off at 1:35. Woods sits at 1-under and nine strokes off the pace.
"My 61 was better", McIlroy said with a laugh, "it's a different course, I mean, 9 under around this place is pretty good". I've played well in spurts there. "It was nowhere near as disappointing the experience I had there a few years ago so it was much easier to get over".
