Five stories to watch at the Wells Fargo Championship
Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy are your big storylines to watch as we head to Sunday at Quail Hollow.
The dust has settled on the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship and...hey...this could be the best finish on the PGA Tour in quite a while.
There's the Big Lefty, the Englishman, and the Ulsterman and oh man, we have ourselves a leaderboard.
Here are five stories to watch on Sunday at the Wells Fargo Championship.
1. Can Lefty win place or show? Forget the outright W, Phil Mickelson doesn't have a top 10 finish to show for his efforts on the PGA Tour this year. After a Saturday 63 he'll be expected to produce more fireworks on Sunday.
2. Is Rory repeating 2010? Rory McIlroy went 66-62 in 2010 for the four-stroke win over...Phil Mickelson. He went with a 65 on Saturday, will he close for a 63 for another win here?
3. Will we get a duel? I wrote earlier this week about how desperately the PGA Tour needed a show on Sunday. The pieces are in place (Mickelson, McIlroy, Zach Johnson, and Justin Rose), will they go at it for 18 (or more) in the final round?
4. Another first time winner: If Martin Flores or Kevin Kinsner wins on Sunday that would make the sixth in the last nine weeks. Good for those guys, terrible for the sport.
5. Derek Ernst: The defending champion only has one other top 30 in his career save his win at this tournament in 2013. He's T22 after three rounds, maybe this is just his course.
