Rory Mc Ilroy reacts to a putt on the first hole

He played in the final twosome and collected his best finish, T2, since he was solo second at AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in 2015.

The 42-year-old Woods made some significant progress in that area Saturday for a 3-under 68.

The 30-year-old Australian - an OH resident who can be found courtside at Cavaliers games - fought through some wayward tee shots and self-doubt to shoot a 2-under 69 on Sunday.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are grouped together (along with Rickie Fowler) in the first two rounds of next week's Players Championship, adding another wrinkle to their storied rivalry.

When he sputtered at the start, there was no reason to panic that he wasn't taking advantage of a great day for scoring.

"This is Charlotte at its finest", said one woman.

"Things like that are what you need to win tournaments", Day said.

He had to wait to see how far back he was at the end of the day to see if he had a remote chance at making a run.

With a two-shot lead, Day parred the last to claim his 12th PGA Tour victory. I was just trying to keep it inside the tree line.

"When I hit it, it was on a cracking line, it was lovely", the Australian told reporters after securing his 12th PGA Tour victory. "Also left a few out there, too". It's an wonderful golf course. The former NCAA champion from OR picks up his best finish as a pro and sits inside the top 50 in the FedExCup standings at No. 49.

And as well as those star players performed, they couldn't match Peter Uihlein, who shot 62 after a six-hole stretch that included five birdies and an eagle.

It's a win-win for the Day supporters as their man won and the three horses-for-courses at Quail Hollow Club did not.

"My 61 was better", McIlroy said with a laugh.

"One of the best wins I have ever had ..."

"It's totally ironic", Uihlein said.

There are gobs of storylines this week with stars and superstars all over the board, but I picked nine to focus in on as the PGA Tour's premiere event gets going on Thursday.
