Thomas wins WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in dominant style

Thomas wins WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in dominant style

Players Championship victor Webb Simpson holed a wedge from 111 yards for eagle at the par-five 16th and joined Woods on six-under in the World Golf Championships event.

"I just haven't really had the results or the score to (reflect) it".

"Things could have certainly gone better but it is what it is and (we're) on to next week".

Thomas fell behind early with two bogeys in three holes, and a 10-foot par save in between from behind the fourth green kept him from falling further behind. He needn't have anxious - he shot 73 and tied for sixth.

"If I had shot one under today I think it would have felt the worst I could have shot with where I was putting some of my tee shots", McIlroy said.

The Holywood man, who won here in 2014 as part of his dominant stretch that also saw him win The Open and US PGA Championship, got off to a strong start after birdieing the second despite a wayward drive which finished on the adjacent third hole, and the four-time Major victor was then nearly hit by a shot from the group in front who were actually playing the par-four.

"That's what this golf course has been over the years and we're going to miss playing it".

Woods has never been totally forthcoming in these situations, though he did admit after the first round of the Memorial Tournament in June that he sometimes wakes up with a stiff lower back, which is simply life for him as a 42-year-old golfer who has endured four back surgeries.

There are two smartphones announced in the Indian market by the company, called BlackBerry Evolve and BlackBerry Evolve X . BlackBerry Evolve and BlackBerry Evolve X, will be available for sale by August-end, and mid-September, respectively.

"I'd like to get back in the winners' circle and if it comes this year great".

Woods's back-to-back 73s are his worst rounds since he shot 78 in the first round of the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills.

"If I can just make a couple more birdies and keep the bogeys off my card, I shouldn't be too far away".

Asked to specify, he said: "Everything". I don't know. I was very nervous, very jittery. It was a lot more hard, a lot firmer and I didn't quite hit it as well today but we just had such control of everything. Tiger Woods is finishing up on the course. "I only putted well the first day". He was in position to make birdies, especially that 380-yard drive he launched at the 482-yard eighth hole that left him only a sand wedge in.

"I was getting frustrated out there but that finish makes up for it". "Let the course come to him, and play a little smarter". "I've got to recover for tomorrow".

Bridgestone is also Tiger's last chance to prepare for the final major of the calendar year: the PGA Championship next weekend in Missouri.

Adam Scott, the 2011 WGC-Bridgestone champion, is next best of the Australians at two under through his first eight holes playing in the afternoon wave.

Thomas' ninth title on the US Tour, and second this year, earned him $US1.7 million (NZ$2.5 million) and moved him up one spot on the rankings to world No 2.
