Tiger Woods in position to strike despite another subpar round at Bridgestone

Tiger Woods in position to strike despite another subpar round at Bridgestone

He finished outside the top 40 in strokes gained putting as well as strokes gained around the green but gained strokes on the field with his driver and finished top 10 in approach shots.

They saw a one-man show.

McIlroy began the as Thomas' closest challenger along with Ian Poulter, but a final round 73 scuppered his chances of a a meaningful challenge. He is paired alongside Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas for the first two rounds.

With a hectic schedule coming up - Woods is expected to play four of the next five weeks - there is little time for him to work it out in practice.

Thomas was far from his best as he played the opening 12 holes in level par and both Stanley and Jason Day eventually closed to within two shots, only to promptly bogey the next two holes.

With the US Tour changing the event's name and moving it to Tennessee next year, the 14-time major winner's hopes of farewelling Akron, Ohio with a first worldwide win in five years are all but over.

"I was just signing my card there and realised I hadn't had a five and you always remember those rounds", Fleetwood, who also shot 63 in the final round of the US Open earlier this season to finish just a shot behind champion Brooks Koepka, said.

One foe was Firestone Country Club, which Woods has owned in the past to the tune of a record eight titles won. I loved playing here, even when it was the World Series of Golf. Also five shots back were Jon Rahm of Spain, who had a sloppy finish for a 70, Tony Finau (68) and Players champion Webb Simpson (65).

McIlroy won at Bay Hill in March and has three runner-up finishes, and he had said Saturday afternoon he was exhausted of finishing second.

Day refuses to concede the elite 71-man event to prolific victor Thomas, whose 2017 US PGA Championship title is among eight US PGA Tour victories during the past three years.

Maurizio Sarri reveals who he wants Chelsea to sign this week
A player who was the biggest transfer target for both Chelsea and Manchester City this summer, before joining the Blues instead. "We made it clear from the day I arrived we want him, but deals are deals, agents are agents and players are players".

A nice putt on the fifth handed him a birdie on the par-three, but he would immediately give that shot back on the sixth before regaining it again at the seventh. The ninth victory of his career moves him to No. 2 in the world, with a shot to regain the No. 1 ranking next week at the PGA Championship.

However, his goal to create yet another slice of PGA Tour in becoming the first player to win an event on nine occasiosn will now be restricted to just Torrry Pines and Bay Hill in suburban Orlando.

"It felt good, I hit a few more fairways today which definitely helped", McIlroy told Sky Sports.

After dropping a point with a bogey on the par-4 14th, Campbell birdied the par-5 18th - a hole where he made a double bogey in the first round and a bogey in the second. "I know I was quite a bit back going into today, so I needed to make a lot of points".
