If anyone was looking for day-three separation Saturday, think again.
The Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club, could still be won by any of about 15 competitors, although Adam Scott is still doing his best to control this thing from beginning to end.
The Australian continued his stellar play Saturday, utilizing four birdies over his last seven holes to shoot 4-under and lead the tournament after three days at 12-under.
Ryo Ishikawa and Jason Day stayed right behind him at 11-under. And Keegan Bradley and Martin Laird sit at 10-under.
Anyone can take it…although Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson aren’t likely.
Woods missed at least his first seven fairways and found just four of them as the day continued. He often used his iron in the tee box.
Woods finished the day 2-over par to pull him to 1-over for the tournament, good enough for a tie at 38th place. Mickelson is also 1-over after shooting 1-0ver on the day.
Should Ishikawa win tomorrow he would become the second youngest competitor to win in PGA history.
Johnny McDermott won the US Open in 1911 at the age of 19 years, 10 months and four days. Ishikawa is exactly one week older.
