Thomas warms up for US PGA with win at WGC-Bridgestone

Justin Thomas followed a solid recipe for winning the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone C.C.'s South Course: hit it far off the tee and then hit a bunch of greens in regulation.

The final World Golf Championship at Firestone lacked drama on Sunday. Day was also two shots behind after three straight birdies on holes 10-12. I think we may have caught a glimpse of that on the weekend at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational when he shot 73-73, and I'm not optimistic about what St. Louis in August is going to mean for his feels.

Rory McIlroy is joined by Ian Poulter, who has sat atop the leaderboard much of this tournament, three shots back of Thomas at T2. He fell all the way into a tie for sixth at eight-under, seven shots behind Thomas.

Fleetwood, who has been in remarkable form of late, made seven birdies in a bogey-free round of 63 to move to 11 under with Poulter and Thomas.

But Spieth clearly blossomed more quickly as a pro than Justin Thomas, who always praised his good buddy's success through an fantastic early run on the PGA Tour, including his third major title previous year at The Open and into the PGA Championship where he was getting all the hype. That made his steady play all the more meaningful for him.

"I hit some good shots today, but also I didn't feel like I was in control of the golf ball today", Woods said. I've had so many great memories and it's just - it's sad that we're not coming back here anymore. He had gone five months since his last victory, a playoff win at the Honda Classic. The list of golfers without major championships should be getting shorter, but instead it seems like it's getting deeper and possibly even better. "I can't really put it into words, honestly", he said.

"I needed to go get it today and I didn't do it".

Tiger Woods returned to Firestone and had his lowest opening round of the year at the Bridgestone Invitational.

"This is my first PGA Tour win with him here and it's really special".

"I just want to have more chances to win tournaments", he said.

"It was very honest", Johnson said of Tuesday's team meeting. "This is my first PGA Tour win with them here, so it's pretty cool", the 25-year-old said after joining Dustin Johnson and Bubba Watson as three-times winners on the tour this year.

With the course firming up throughout the afternoon, the scoring average soared on day three but halfway co-leader Thomas seemed unfazed, mixing six birdies with three bogeys on Saturday to get to 14 under par.
