Day gets wet, but leads Wells Fargo by two strokes

"It's always nice to come back to a golf course and an event where you've played well before and you've have some really good memories and luckily this week is one of those weeks for me", McIlroy told reporters.

Woods shot a 3-under 68, which would have been a 4-under 67 if not for a tough three-putt bogey on the final hole.

Tiger Woods said he's on the verge of putting it all together and winning his first PGA tournament in five years - if he can just start rolling the ball a little better on the greens.

Mickelson had a 64, his lowest score this season.

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. He made back-to-back birdies on 7 and 8 but couldn't get up-and-in from a bunker on 9 and made bogey for a one-under 34 on his opening nine.

"Today was a bit of a struggle through eight holes", said Day.

While many players took advantage of a softer course, Tiger Woods failed to do the same on a course that was 228 yards shorter and soft enough that the players actually found pitch marks on the greens. He was even par for the tournament, seven strokes behind leader Peter Malnati entering the final 36 holes. Two bogeys over the last three holes gave him a 70.

Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland followed a 76 in the second round with a 66 on Saturday to move to 3 under. I've got everything in place for both sides of it, so I'm not going to be bothered if I make it (back onto the Tour full-time).

"I definitely think it's just around the corner, it's not too far". An eagle on the par-5 10th pushed him to 7-under for the day, and one last pair of birdies on 14 and 15 brought him home in 62.

"I was in the correct spots", Woods said.

Day sits at six under at the halfway point with America's Peter Malnati making the running following a three-under-par round of 68.

Woods picked up six birdies to reach one-under 212 but finished the round on a sour note with a three-putt bogey on 18.

Woods had back-to-back birdies on the holes where Peterson made his eagles, getting him to 1 under. "I putted so terribly so much that I changed putters".

"I was saying yesterday the iron play just needs to tighten up". There were a couple of balls that hit trees and came back into the fairway. Now sitting at 14th in the Official World Golf Rankings, he said the goal is to get back there now healthy after an injury-riddled season past year.
