Three now tied at the top

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Derek Ernst just made a 5-footer for birdie on the 18th hole, the most difficult of the week, to tie for the lead of the Wells Fargo Championship at 8 under.

Minutes before the PGA TOUR rookie made that clutch putt, Phil Mickelson hit his drive at the 16th hole into the right rough and then proceeded to miss a 5-footer for par to fall back to 8 under. Ernst's playing partner, David Lynn, parred the final hole to finish at 8 under, as well.

Mickelson is now playing the 17th hole where he is 13 over in 39 visits. Robert Karlsson is 7 under with one hole remaining.

Karlsson and Ernst need to win the Wells Fargo Championship to earn the final spot in next week's PLAYERS Championship.
