Five-time major champion Phil Mickelson is on five under, while Northern Ireland's two-time event victor Rory McIlroy recovered from his second-round 76 to move to three over par.

Peter Malnati's 36-hole lead didn't last long. 13 and 14, the latter dropping him into a tie for the lead with Aaron Wise. With his ball on a sharp downslope a few feet from the rock-framed banks of the stream, he considered a penalty drop that would have taken double bogey out of the picture.

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.

"That was going to be a devastating hole", he said. "When the pressure was on, I kept my head about me and pulled off some incredible shots".

Day will tell you that 2017 wasn't his best year, and not just because he failed to win on the PGA Tour for the first time in four years.

"Obviously power off the tee, he's a phenomenal driver", said Phil Mickelson, who also shot 69 and finished five shots back. That was probably a good thing.

"That is what I am most happy about", Day said. Instead, it was a 9-iron from the rough on which he judged the wind at his back and the bounce in fairway to near perfection.

"I'd much rather be in this position than chasing", Day 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. "I hit a nice shot into the ninth hole, and a good drive down 10 started getting things in the right direction".

The 14-times major champion said he would work on all facets of his game before the Players Championship starts in Florida on Thursday at TPC Sawgrass, where he has won twice.

ST. ALBANS, England (AP) - Ireland won the second edition of the GolfSixes tournament as Gavin Moynihan and Paul Dunne beat the French pair of Romain Wattel and Mike Lorenzo-Vera in the final on Sunday. "You sit there and play mental games with yourself, subconsciously saying, 'You can't do this". That nearly doubled Moynihan's career earnings on the European Tour, for just two days' work.
