Shot-by-shot recap of Tiger Woods' final-round 74 at Wells Fargo

Tiger Woods got the birdies to drop – six of them – Saturday at the Wells Fargo Championship, but his third-round, 3-under 68 could’ve been much lower, Woods said after the round.

Woods enters Sunday’s final round nine shots back of leader Jason Day, so while he surely won’t win this week, he still could put another low round together and gain some momentum entering next week’s Players Championship.

We’ll track Woods final round, shot by shot, beginning at 11:05 a.m. Eastern at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C.:

Hole No. 18: Par 4, 494 yards

Off the tee: Nice final tee shot of the tournament with 3-wood. Fairway.

Approach shot: Tiger will have a good look at his first birdie of the round as he hits his approach about 17 feet right of the flag.

On the green: Just misses left. Par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 over thru 18 (2 over for the tournament)

TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 over thru 16 (2 over for the tournament)

Hole No. 15: Par 5, 577 yards

Off the tee: Tiger misses in the right rough on this dogleg left.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over thru 10 (1 over for the tournament)

Approach shot: Just a chip here, but Tiger runs it by the hole and onto the fringe.

Around the green: He’s just 13 feet away, but he’ll chip it because there’s a sprinkler head in the way. Nearly makes it.

On the green: Disappointing par after that drive.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over thru 8 (1 over for the tournament)

Hole No. 7: Par 5, 546 yards

Off the tee: Tiger misses left again with driver. Avoids the sand, though.

Hole No. 3: Par 4, 483 yards

Approach shot: Some tree trouble here and this one has to hook a little. It does and Tiger finds the right side of the green. He’ll have another 30-plus-footer downhill for birdie, though.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over thru 3 (1 over for the tournament)

Hole No. 2: Par 4, 452 yards

Off the tee: After going wide left at the first, TW hits the stinger and finds the fairway.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 2 (Even par for the tournament)
