Live blog: Jason Day wins Wells Fargo Championship

Jason Day takes a two-shot lead into Sunday’s final round of the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C. We’ll follow the finish in the Queen City:

UPDATE NO. 10 (5:50 p.m. ET): Jason Day pars the closing hole to shoot 69 and win by two shots. It’s his second win of the season.

UPDATE NO. 9 (5:39 p.m. ET): Jason Day hits the cup with his tee ball at the par-3 17th and makes the 2-footer for birdie to move to 12 under, two shots clear of Aaron Wise, who finished at 10 under after a par at the 18th.

UPDATE NO. 8 (5:27 p.m. ET): With Aaron Wise in the pine straw right of the 18th fairway, Jason Day buries an 11-footer for birdie at the par-4 16th to retake the outright lead, at 11 under.

UPDATE NO. 7 (5:12 p.m. ET): Jason Day just misses a 10-footer for birdie at the par-5 15th and he’ll head to the Green Mile tied with Aaron Wise at 10 under. Wise has two holes left to play.

UPDATE NO. 6 (4:56 p.m. ET): Jason Day puts his tee ball in the water at the par-4 14th and makes bogey. That means he’s tied with Aaron Wise at 10 under now.

UPDATE NO. 5 (4:53 p.m. ET): For a moment it looked like Jason Day was going to cruise to victory. But a Day bogey at the par-3 13th and an Aaron Wise birdie on the short par-4 14th means Wise, at 10 under, is just a shot back.

UPDATE NO. 4 (4:02 p.m. ET): Jason Day continues his stellar sand play at the par-5 10th. He finds the left greenside bunker in two shots, and then blasts out to 2 feet and makes the birdie putt to take a three-shot lead at 12 under.

UPDATE NO. 3 (3:56 p.m. ET): Few players are making charges today. Emiliano Grillo, however, is 4 under through 16 holes. He is four shots back right now, so he’ll need a couple of more birdies to have a chance. Patrick Reed is 3 under through 14 holes and is also at 7 under.

UPDATE NO. 2 (3:48 p.m. ET): Jason Day makes the turn at 11 under, two shots ahead of Aaron Wise, the 2016 NCAA individual champion out of Oregon who is chasing his first win on the PGA Tour.

UPDATE NO. 1 (3 p.m. ET): Justin Thomas won’t move to No. 1 in the world this week, but this is a nice way to close out his tournament.
