Mickelson remains 2 strokes ahead

3:30 update: A birdie on the eighth hole has given sole possession of the lead back to Phil Mickelson at the Wells Fargo Championship. Mickelson is 1-under for the day and 10-under for the tournament. That's two strokes ahead of Nick Watney and George McNeill.

Rory McIlroy made a brief run at the lead when he eagled the seventh hole. He gave those two strokes back on No. 9 with a double bogey, though. McIlroy is 6-under.

Scott Gardiner has bogeyed Nos. 8 and 9 and is now five back at 5-under.
