Rory McIlroy: Masters is the biggest tournament

Aaron Wise, the 2016 NCAA college champion, is tied for second with former world No1 Jason Day, with 2011 Masters victor Charl Schwarzel and England's Paul Casey a shot further back. He stretched out both arms in mock celebration after avoiding only the sixth round without a birdie in his career.

"I'm on a hot streak right now, I made the last putt", Woods said when he met with reporters. He hasn't played here since 2012, when he missed the cut for the second time, but says he can't get used to the new putting surfaces. "I putted so terribly so much that I changed putters". Or that he was nine shots out of the lead in a tie for 48th, his worst position through 36 holes in his last five tournaments. He would shoot another 1 over 72 today to finish his 2 rounds at 2 over which means Lefty will be playing this weekend at Quail Hollow as well.

"I've struggled with the greens being as slow as they are", Woods said after shooting a 2-over 73 on Friday.

However, Tyrrell Hatton and Rory McIlroy both slipped from contention.

CHARLOTTE, NC - MAY 03: Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland plays his tee shot on the third hole during the first round of the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club on May 3, 2018 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Thursday and Saturday were "Best Ball", while Friday and Sunday were "Foursomes", (or alternate shot).

Malnati made two straight birdies and finished with a par that felt like a birdie.

"I'm putting well. It's fun to putt on greens where you get on line and just watch it roll end-over-end, and hopefully go right in the hole". At a place where he has won twice, including 2015 when he shot a course-record 61, McIlroy shot a 76 that included bogeys on three of his last five holes.

He is not long or regarded as a pure striker of the golf ball, which is not a great combination at this level.

Woods will need to play lights out to close the nine-shot gap between he and Malnati, who carded a three-under 68 to get to seven-under 135.

"I've always enjoyed the golf course through the different variations of it from 2010 all the way up until now". "But having fun and being relaxed aren't the same thing".

"Once I got back into my routine I was fine; I was disappointed because I just didn't give a good account of myself on that final day". He still managed a birdie on the par-5 first hole and turned in 32.

Returning to a hard course where he has had success in the past might be just the tonic to kickstart a return to form, Lee posting just one top-10 this season and that coming in October previous year. Aaron Wise and Jason Day were tied for second. Unsurprisingly Woods is a former victor of the event, back in 2007, and is available at 25/1 to become only the tournament's second multiple champion.
