Phil Mickelson and Nick Watney wound up tied for the lead Saturday in the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, N.C., minus the separation from the rest of the field.
Mickelson hit a shot out-of-bounds on the 15th hole and hit another shot that struck a spectator in the head, costing him three shots over the last four holes at Quail Hollow in his round of 1-over 73. Watney hit a semi-shank with a 6-iron on the par-3 17th, took double bogey and had to settle for a 71.
It felt like small consolation that they were tied at 8-under 208, one shot ahead of George McNeill, who had a 72. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
