Jim Furyk makes 16 pars and leads by 1 shot over Louis Oosthuizen at Firestone
AKRON, Ohio (AP) ¯¯¯ A steady diet of pars kept Jim Furyk in the lead Saturday in the Bridgestone Invitational, but not by much.
Furyk made his only birdie on the par-5 second hole and had to settle for an even-par 70 at Firestone, giving him a one-shot lead over Louis Oosthuizen going into the final round of this World Golf Championship. Oosthuizen had a 68.
Keegan Bradley, who can move into the top eight in Ryder Cup standings with a runner-up finish, had a 67 and was four shots behind. He will be in the final group Sunday, when tee times are pushed forward to avoid a forecast of thunderstorms.
Tiger Woods broke par for the first time this week. He had a 68, though he still was 11 shots back.
