Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
The Wells Fargo Championship has reached the final state and Rory Mcllroy has entered the final round right behind Keith Mitchell. Mcllroy is just two shots behind Mitchell after firing a three-under 68 to stay in the competition. Mcllroy is looking forward to securing his third victory in the Wells Fargo Championship. The tournament will continue to take place at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, Carolina. According to this top online sportsbook, Wells Fargo will have a purse of $8,100,000 and the end of this exciting tournament is near. Mcllroy might be right behind Mitchell, but he also has a tight competition with Gary Woodland.
Keith Mitchell Tops Leaderboard
Keith Mitchell has taken the lead after taking control on the third day at Quail Hollow. The golfer went deep after firing a bogey-free 66 on the nine-under. Mitchell is the 54-hole leader and has made three birdies in four holes before going to the 14th and 16th. Mitchell will play for the first time with Mcllroy in the competition. Following Mcllroy is Gary Woodland with seven-under. Matt Wallace had a bit of hardship as he struggled to a 73 slip five shots off the pace.
Mcllroy’s Long Ride
Mcllroy struggled the past year without any victory and he managed to make it to the final group for the first time since Riviera. The two-time Quail Hollow winner will give his best shot to get back on track. Mallory was steady and managed to double bogey on the 12th home. The 32-year-old player has the perfect chance to win back his glory. McIlroy won his first PGA Tour in 2010 and added another title in 2015.
Gary Woodland’s Struggle
Gary Woodland experienced his own troubles as he struggled to make ends meet. Woodlands slipped with a drive out of the water hazard on the par-5 seventh. Despite turning a birdie into a bogey, Woodland managed a 70 and an opportunity to win for the first time since the U.S. Open title at Pebble Beach back in 2019.
Garrick Higgo Enters Final Round
The Canary Island Championship will continue as Garrick Higgo takes the lead with four birdies in the last four holes. Higgo shot seven-under 64 which gave him a two-shot lead during the final round. Higgo was patient and hit good shots after giving himself a good chance. His two-shot lead put him into the final round of the Canary Island Championship on Saturday. Following Higgo was Richard Mansell at the second spot who carded a 64. At the third position, Callum Hill made his appearance.
