  • Jason Day seizes control at Quail Hollow on PGA Tour

Day pulled away again before sealing the deal Sunday afternoon.

Day led the way for most of the fourth round before Aaron Wise came back to tie late in the round.

Wise, a 21-year-old rookie, impressed with a final-round 68 that featured just one bogey.

Power sits in a tie for 40th place, having moved 29 places up the leaderboard, however, Shane Lowry remains over par for the tournament.

"I hit the ball halfway decent today, " he said.

The four-time major victor tumbled down the leaderboard on Friday after shooting a disappointing 76 to move over par, however, the County Down golfer has fought back to three under par and sits in a tie for 16th place, seven shots off leader Jason Day.

The 60-year-old German, a three-time victor of the Houston-area event, is seeking his first victory of 2018 after seven wins last year.


Day was unlucky not to make a hole-in-one, but the stick also saved his ball from rolling off the back of the green.

Day, who has had trouble with the closing hole in the past, then had the luxury of hitting an iron off the 18th tee, knowing he had a two-shot lead. He got up-and-down from the rough right of the green to finish with a par.

Saying it nearly commits you to being the best player.

"Your subconscious is sitting there going, 'you're going to fail, you're going to fail, you're going to fail.'"
But I've got to put it behind me and move on to the next one and hit the next shot with just as much commitment. If he can get everything else in order, he'll surely be a factor at next week's Players Championship, where he won in 2016. The field features six of the top 10 in the world ranking, although Thomas is the only player from the top 5 at Quail Hollow. "So he's got strengths in all the areas that he needs".

That was his only birdie as he struggled with the putter for a second consecutive day. Day pumped his fist and cheered on his playing partner before he rolled in the winning putt. Corey Conner (72) of Listowel, Ont., tied for 42nd at 1 over and Mackenzie Hughes (73) of Dundas, Ont., tied for 59th at 3 over. Although he had back-to-back birdies on the seventh and eighth holes, his momentum was stalled by a bogey on the 11th - when his tee shot finished in a fairway bunker - and then another on the 14th, where he drove into the water hazard and had to take a penalty drop before rescuing a bogey five.

But the former world number one responded under pressure with a clutch birdie at the lengthy par-4 16th, before he clattered his tee shot at the par-3 17th into the flagstick for a tap-in birdie.

Tiger finds putting form Tiger Woods fired a 68 to share 31st on 214, the 14-time major champion fighting to contend in his first event since the Masters in his comeback after missing most of two years with severe back pain. Woods shot 3-under for the day, but he could have doubled that total, what with the greens playing easier and him putting better.
