Thomas cruises to WGC-Bridgestone victory

Thomas cruises to WGC-Bridgestone victory

"I just have to work on my driver a little bit because it has been quite decent for most of the year, but this week it wasn't".

Tiger jumped to No. 20 in the rankings after The Open Championship but he remains there after the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

"I've got a lot of confidence in my game and I'm really looking forward to next week", Johnson said. Ian Poulter started three shots behind and shot 74. Woods made two double bogeys and three bogeys on the back nine and salvaged a 73 to finish 15 shots behind. After opening with 67-71, the 2016 NCAA Individual (and team) Champ while at OR hung up a pair of 67s on the weekend and finished with 17 birdies against nine bogeys, five versus two in R4.

Bhullar holed a 40-yard chip for eagle on the par-5 17th at Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course.

The Bridgestone Invitational field includes the top 50 players from the Official World Golf Ranking, along with members of the Presidents Cup teams and the winners of selected tournaments on the PGA Tour and other worldwide tours. With another birdie at the last, a 67 left him three off the pace.

Day played alongside eight-time Bridgestone victor Tiger Woods, who had four birdies and two bogeys in a two-under 68 that left him tied for 10th, five shots behind the leaders and still in the mix heading into the weekend.

"It was very similar to the first day", Woods said.

Spieth made a run at completing the career grand slam in just one year in 2015, when he won the Masters and U.S. Open before finishing T4 at The Open Championship and second in the PGA Championship.

Venezuela says assassination attempt used drones loaded explosives
One showed a cellphone video of a drone hovering over a residential street two blocks away and then crashing into a building. The Colombian government was quick to deny any involvement, saying there was "no basis" to Mr Maduro's allegations.

Thomas had not had a score better than 67, and he had not finished higher than a tie for 28th in his two previous appearances at Firestone. Yeah, I just got off to a really good start, played a great front nine and birdied 10 to get 7 under through 10.

Firestone has held tour events since the Rubber City Open in 1954.

Niemann has four top-10 finishes in 10 PGA Tour events this year, including a T5 finish at A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier in July.

There may not be a more storybook ending to the 100th PGA Championship than one of golf's young stars completing the career grand slam at age 25. Starting in 2019, the Bridgestone Invitational will be moving to Memphis, according to Golf.com.

There he will try to defend the PGA Championship he won previous year at Quail Hollow.

Jason Day and Kyle Stanley tried to make a move, only to stumble with bogeys. Stanley closed with a 68.

Johnson bogeyed the last hole for a 64 and shared third with Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark, who also had a 64. Not to worry. His 73 gave him a tie for sixth.

"I need to drive the ball better", Day said. "Anytime you can birdie seven out of the first 10, you know you're doing something pretty well".
