Quail Hollow Round 3 live updates

Live updates will be posted below,

21:50 Streelman drops back to -7. Mickleson bombs one crazy wild. Provisional ball being played. Watney pars 15, failed to convert from a position just short of the green.

21:48 Watney nearly chips in but it runs 6 foot by. Streelman still at -7. McNeill for par on 15 from 8-10 foot.

21:43 McNeill chips the ball back to the fairway from the bushes. Par 5 15th. Watney second ends up just 10 yards short. Mickelson's ball goes deeper into the tree then McNeills ball. Not good.

21:38 Mickelson birdied driveable 14. Back up to -11. 15 is a lovely par 5. Reachable.


21:34 John Senden has the best score on the top leaderboard at the moment he's -5 on the day.

21:29 McNeill make a bird on 14 to move to -9. Mickelson played his 3 wood. Leaders on -10.

21:26 Ernst makes par on 15. McIlroy missed another short birdie putt and Mickelson waits on the drivable par 4 14th.

21:22 Watney begins 14 with the crowd going wild for Mickelson who chips in to 3 foot on par three.

I'll take this break in play to recommend you checking out the post on choosing a golf ball that suits you. 

21:19 Ernst goes for the 15th in two and has a snap hook that ended up in the crowd, short side of the pin, over a bunker! Risk reward.

21:16 Short Birdie putt on 12 missed by Watney. Mickelson missed his first putt inside of 10 foot this week! Still not human though! Two tied at the top.

21:15 after a great start, Gardiner has fallen away with a double bogey on 9 and is currently sitting on -5.

21:12 Mickelson just short of 12 in two, Chance to keep his Scrambling stats top class.

21:05 Back to the action now and Mickelson is -11 watney -10 and McNeill -8.

20:33 McIlroy has 4 foot for birdie on 10.

20:30 Mickelson -10 through front 9. Still 2 up on crowd.

20:27 Only 300 yards away from the fairway and Mcilroy is hole high. Wow. Mickelson is 39/39 from inside 10 feet. Wow.

20:25 Mickelson currently -10 and two ahead of the field after Watney bogeyed 9.

20:21 McNeil -6 through 9 holes. Mickelson bashes a hybrid club from other rough after and has 40 yards left after hitting a tree.

20:16 Mickelson bodies the 8th and moves to -10. Ernst moves back to -7.

20:13 McIlroy makes double. Drops to -6. Scott Gardiner has made a bogey on 8. Watney has 92 yards in on 9 and.........35 feet.

20:12 McIlroy makes bogey on brutal par 4 9. Drops to -7.

20:09 McNeill makes 3 birdies on the spin at 5-6 and 7 and par at 8 to make it to -8 and one off the lead. Westwood playing well at slowly moving up the leaderboard At -7

20:06 Today is Rory McIlroys birthday, happy birthday to the worlds second best player and proud Irishman.

20;04 Mickelson makes a par and Gardiner lips out from 3 feet for birdie. On 7.

20:00 Watney makes a 5 footer for birdie to share with Mickelson. Moore coming I to the finish currently -5 for the day.

19:42 Mickelson makes birdie at Par 5, to take the lead by one over McIlroy who eagled the 7th hole and parred 8.

19:39 I'd expect the scoring to get hot quick over the 6th, 7th and 8th. This will be interesting!

19:36 McIlroy putting worse than average with no putting stats in the top 15. If the putter gets hot....

19:33 Four way tie at the top of the leader board. Mickelson, Ernst, Gardiner and Watney.
