The four-time major victor tumbled down the leaderboard on Friday after shooting a disappointing 76 to move over par, however, the County Down golfer has fought back to three under par and sits in a tie for 16th place, seven shots off leader Jason Day.
"If I can hit a lot more greens and get the proxmitiy closer, I feel like I could, not run away from it, but do prettty well if I can make the putts", Day said.
Day reacts after sinking the winning putt on the 18th green during the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship. He stretched out both arms in mock celebration after his 2-over 73. He took off his shoes and stood in the water to hit his approach then slipped them back on for the walk to the final green and closed with a par. I just had to be patient.
"When I'm putting well, I don't feel like I should miss a putt inside 10 feet".
The world number 14 started the third round just one shot behind Peter Malnati but as the American tumbled down the leaderboard with a four-over 75, Day climbed into pole position on 10 under par with an impressive 67. He rolled up his trousers, played the ball above his feet on the embankment and eventually made par. Woods finished with a birdie-less three-over 74 that has him outside the top 50 at two-over 286. Wagner had his only bogey on the first hole and followed with three birdies on his way to a 69.
"I'm just not that comfortable with anything right now", McIlroy told Golf Channel. "So I put a little more hit into my stroke, put a little more load, a little more hit and it worked out good, I hit some good putts. I'm confident about my abilities going into next week, but I got to just enjoy tonight, have fun, but really got to focus on next week after tonight".
At least he has the weekend.

The greens at Quail Hollow have perplexed Woods all week. He had missed his previous two cuts at Quail Hollow, in 2010 and 2012. That is one shot off the Quail Hollow course record.
He can, however, use Saturday's effort as a springboard to enter the week of the Players Championship in a confident frame of mind.
This is a new course to him. He cleared the steep lip of a bunker with inches to spare and made a 6-foot putt.
He walked off the seventh green holding his putter, one hand on the grip, the other on the head, as if he wanted to break it in half.
As well as Woods is hitting the ball off the tee - he averaged 313 yards from the tee - he's not been accurate enough to give himself chances to hit it close.
"This is probably one of the best wins I've ever had, just because of how hard everything was today", he added. It effectively secured two more rounds.
