(AP Photo/Chuck Burton)CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Quail Hollow was softer and shorter, producing one low score after another before the final groups even started Saturday in the Wells Fargo Championship.Jason Day wasn’t paying attention, which probably helped.ADVERTISEMENT Green group flags ‘overkill’ use of plastic banderitas in Manila Sto. Niño feast Tiger Woods, who started the third round on the same score as Uihlein, Mickelson and McIlroy, failed to take advantage on a course that was set up 228 yards shorter and was soft enough that players actually found pitch marks on the green. Woods finally got going on the back nine with three straight birdies, but a three-putt bogey on the final hole gave him a 68. He was nine shots behind.Peter Malnati’s 36-hole lead didn’t last long. He had a pair of double bogeys, shot 75 and fell seven shots behind.PGA Tour rookie Aaron Wise nearly had a collapse late until he salvaged a most unlikely bogey.Wise, the NCAA champion from Oregon two years ago, pulled his approach left of the 18th green. It bounded over the stream to the other side. 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. Instead, he tried a flop shot and his wedge slid under the ball for a whiff.He hit the next one across the green to 40 feet, and knocked that in for bogey. Two bogeys over the last three holes gave him a 70.“That was going to be a devastating hole,” he said. “So to turn it into a bogey … it gives me a shot tomorrow.”Day is in charge, but not in the clear.He has won four out of five times when he’s had the 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour, and it helps that he doesn’t have too much experience behind him. Watney hasn’t won in nearly six years. Uihlein still hasn’t won on the PGA Tour. Also three shots back were Bryson DeChambeau (66), Paul Casey (69) and Wise.“I’d much rather be in this position than chasing,” Day said.He already has won this year at Torrey Pines in a playoff over Alex Noren. Day has found the desire than he lost last year, and the 30-year-old Australian does not feel that far off from that dominant run two years ago that took him to No. 1 in the world. He was at 10-under 203.Nick Watney overcame a double bogey on the par-5 10th hole with four birdies over his last six holes for a 66. He will be in the final group for the first time in nearly four years as he tries to win for the first time since a back injury two years ago.“To get back in contention, that’s why I play golf. I’m super, super excited,” Watney said. “I’m just going to try to embrace everything that comes with tomorrow and hope I have a chance down the last.”Peter Uihlein finished the front nine with five straight birdies and started the back nine with an eagle. He shot 62, one off Rory McIlroy’s course record, and wound up three shots out of the lead and in the penultimate group.Phil Mickelson shot a 64, his best score of the year. He starts Sunday four shots out of the lead. McIlroy three-putted the last hole and still shot 66. As a testament to the conditions, all he did was shrug. “I didn’t play that well. The score sort of flatters me,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Jo Koy draws ire for cutting through Cebu City traffic with ‘wang-wang’ P16.5-M worth of aid provided for Taal Volcano eruption victims — NDRRMC Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding Scientists seek rare species survivors amid Australia flames LATEST STORIEScenter_img Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident He The North: LeBron’s bank at buzzer downs Raptors ‘Stop romanticizing Pinoy resilience’ “I feel like it’s right on the end of the tip,” he said, smiling and rubbing together the tips of his fingers. “I’m driving it better than I ever have before in my career.

first_imgBut the way in which she won was amazing. In only her third career start – her first against winners and first in a stakes race – Rags to Riches was forced five-wide on the clubhouse turn, four-wide down the backstretch and four-wide on the far turn. Everywhere Gomez looked, there were traffic problems, so he just wheeled her five-wide entering the stretch and blew past her seven rivals to win going away. She returned $7.40 as the favorite. “I was going twice as fast (on the final turn) as anything else, but it looked like I was hardly making a run because she was so wide,” Gomez said. “She overcame a lot today and she’s not very seasoned. I have high hopes for her.” ARCADIA – Sometimes you get what you pay for when you spend $1.9 million for a yearling. That’s the price owners Derrick Smith and Michael Tabor paid for Rags to Riches in September 2005 at the Keeneland sale, and the 3-year-old daughter of A.P. Indy not only is starting to look like a bargain but also might have stamped herself as the early favorite for the Kentucky Oaks on May 4. Trainer Bobby Frankel has won 861 career races at Santa Anita, second only to Charlie Whittingham’s record 869. But the Hall of Famer never had saddled the winner of the Grade I $250,000 Santa Maria Handicap – until Saturday. Sugar Shake, ridden by David Flores, went gate-to-wire in 1:43.89 for the 1 1/16 miles on dirt. Fresh off a victory in last month’s El Encino Stakes, Sugar Shake was allowed to control the early tempo and carved modest fractions of 24.10, 48.57 and 1:12.58. Sugar Shake was chased the entire way by Churchill Downs invader Ermine, the 2-1 favorite, who wound up second, 13/4 lengths back. Rahy’s Appeal finished third and Freakin Streakin was fourth. “I stayed away from the fence in case somebody went early,” Flores said. “The first half (mile), it looked like we got away pretty easy. And after that, when they came to her, she just rebroke.” Frankel also entered Sugar Shake in this afternoon’s $200,000 La Canada Stakes. “She would have carried 123 (pounds) in the La Canada, but today she carried 115,” Frankel said. “(In the Santa Maria) I was confident (at the eighth pole she would win), but I wasn’t confident going in (to the race).” Sugar Shake returned $8.40 for the victory, her fifth in 11 races. Jockey Aaron Gryder has withdrawn his appeal of a three-day suspension that he received at Hollywood Park on Dec. 16. Gryder will serve it beginning Wednesday. Cambiocorsa, dubbed “Queen of the Hill” for her many victories over Santa Anita’s unique downhill grass course, has been retired and will be bred to 2004 Horse of the Year Ghostzapper. Trained by Doug O’Neill, the 5-year-old daughter of Avenue Of Flags won four stakes races and banked $522,055. Jockey David Cohen, who recently parted company with agent Nick Cosato, has hired Jim Pegram to handle his mounts. “Jim’s always been a top agent, and I’m glad to have an opportunity to have someone with his connections represent me,” Cohen said. “He should open some doors and help my business.” Cosato now is the agent for 19-year-old Michael Baze. “Mike’s young, he’s passionate and has a great work ethic,” Cosato said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Ridden by Santa Anita’s leading jockey Garrett Gomez, who won three more races on Saturday’s card, Rags to Riches captured the $250,000 Las Virgenes Stakes, a Grade I race at a mile. She prevailed by three-quarters of a length over pacesetting Baroness Thatcher in 1:37.85 on the main track. last_img read more
