Justin Thomas doesn't break sweat in winning finale at Firestone

Justin Thomas doesn't break sweat in winning finale at Firestone

Tiger Woods said there was nothing bothering him but poor play Saturday as he stumbled out of contention at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio.

The final World Golf Championship at Firestone lacked drama on Sunday. Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Jon Rahm and Tommy Fleetwood are among the names inside the top 10, all within seven shots of Thomas.

Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy also had a 67 to jump into second place with Poulter (70) at 11-under.

Marc Leishman and Kyle Stanley were tied for fifth on nine under, one shot ahead of Spain's Jon Rahm and American Rickie Fowler, who made five birdies and no bogeys.

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

The only regret for Thomas was a mistake that didn't cost him as much as it could have.

"I've been coming since my dad took me when it was four players in the world series of golf back in the 60's", Wilmoth said.

"We sat down and just said, what are we doing wrong?"

"Now this is our last go-around here at Firesetone for a while".

"My grandpa is not emotional, but I hadn't seen him smile or be that happy, maybe ever". "The golf course is playing very soft, very receptive, and when you're able to hit 5-irons and they only roll out about a foot, the guys are going to put up good scores".

"It was big because I was really nervous today", Thomas said.

"He's got a nasty streak in him, which I think you need out here". His last nine holes saw two double bogeys, three bogeys, three birdies and just one par.

"It was very honest", Johnson said of Tuesday's team meeting. He has been runner-up three times, most recently at the British Open two weeks ago. "This is my first PGA Tour win with them here, so that's pretty cool".

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 hit a lot that didn't go in the hole, so I'm pleased with it".

"With a three-shot lead, obviously I knew I needed to play well but you kind of have a little bit of wiggle room and you feel like you play maybe a little too conservative".
