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

Tiger Woods barely keeps pace at Firestone

Tiger Woods barely keeps pace at Firestone

McIlroy played bogey-free and will find a familiar face waiting for him on the first tee Sunday. They live near each other in South Florida, so they often practice and play together.

The final World Golf Championship at Firestone lacked drama on Sunday.

But this is the first time a trophy is at stake.

"I hit some good shots today, but also I didn't feel like I was in control of the golf ball today", Woods said.

Also the 2014 and 2015 victor at TPC Twin Cities, the 57-year-old Perry matched Hale Irwin's tournament record of three victories in the final edition of the event that started in 1993 at Bunker Hills. I've had so many great memories and it's just sad that we're not coming back here anymore. "Winning is hard. Hopefully eventually it will happen but it's great to put myself back in position again". He went 1 over the rest of the way for a 68, leaving him five shots behind. It might be a taller order to take on Thomas, who already has won twice this season and appears to have found his touch with the putter.

A red hot Johnson picked up another shot at the 10th, but his progress was halted by a string of pars in Akron, Ohio, where Kyle Stanley joined him on 11 under through 10.

"Things could have certainly gone better", Woods said. Just some of the very best. The difference is, I made everything the first day.

He was at 14-under 196.

His last nine holes saw two double bogeys, three bogeys, three birdies and just one par.

"Don't Underestimate Trump": US After China Threatens Retaliatory Tariffs
Mr Trump is aiming to reduce his country's $375.6 billion goods trade deficit - the gap between imports and exports - with China . Among US products targeted were a wide range of agricultural and energy products such as beef and LNG.

Thomas was impressive off the tee in carding a six-under 64 while Poulter, who held a one-shot lead after his first-round 62, signed for a 67.

The trio made the most of flawless morning scoring conditions, finishing the second round on 11-under 129, two strokes in front of American Kyle Stanley, who carded a 68 and Australian Jason Day, who produced a four-under 66 in the afternoon.

"But I was glad we could get the yellow ribbons to show some appreciation". Rickie Fowler is probably the headliner, but Schauffele, Finau, Bryson DeChambeau, Hideki Matsuyama, Marc Leishman, Jon Rahm, Tommy Fleetwood, Alex Noren, Paul Casey and Matt Kuchar are all still searching for major championship No. 1.

Ernie Els shot 65 and tied for third with Ben Campbell of New Zealand.

Thomas figured that out quickly. He hinted at nine-hole practice rounds at Bellerive; after the PGA Championship, Woods will take a week off prior to the FedEx Cup playoffs. At the 11th, his drive went well left into thick woods. It wasn't like I was making bombs, I was making eight, 10-footers. He bogeyed the next from a bunker, and fell three shots behind, but that par save on No. 4 helped by not dropping a shot, and by understanding how the course was playing.

Fleetwood went so far long on the fourth hole that it went 30 yards over the green. Not to worry. His 73 gave him a tie for sixth. Ian Poulter started three shots behind and shot 74.

It is also just the fifth time he has been in the top 10 after two rounds of any official event since his last victory five years ago at this tournament.

"I'm going to have to", Woods said of picking up the scoring pace in the third round.
