Highlights from the third round of Bridgestone Invitational – Part 1
World Golf Championship Bridgestone Invitational has stepped into the final round with Adam Scott in the lead. The final event of the four-legged series is taking place at the par-70 Firestone Country Club in Ohio. Here is the recap for the day.
Scott teed off from the front to post a score of four-under-par. He reeled six birdies against two bogeys and sealed the day as the leader.
The Aussie had Steve Williams on his bags, which turned out to be lucky for the Aussie. While commenting on his new caddie, the Aussie said that Williams’ company was refreshing for him, which ultimately had a positive impact on his game. Moreover, he praised
the course conditions, which he described as, “impeccable.”
“Well, I think it's a pretty good golf course. It plays a lot better when it is soft in the fairways and the greens. When they get them firm, you know, it's very hard to hold the fairways because they're so narrow they have slope on them, but it plays well
at the moment while it's soft. But it's in impeccable condition, we all know that,” said Scott while talking to the media.
Ryo Ishikawa smashed a score of 11-under-par to move eight spots up the leaderboard. The Japanese reeled six birdies without dropping a single shot to match the course lowest for the day, 64.
Ishikawa was joined by Jason Day, who signed for a 66 after kicking off with a score at par. Day carded one eagle and four birdies against two bogeys.
Day roamed around the course in pink pants, drawing the attention of the huge crowd that had gathered in Ohio to witness the superstars of golf play.
In an answer to a question put forth regarding the unusual colour of his pants, Day said, “People were saying, I like your pants. The only people commenting on my outfit were people saying, are you hot, but that's about it.”
Keegan Bradley and Martin Laird finished two strokes shy of the leader, with a score of ten-under-par.
This is Bradley’s first visit to the course, but despite that, he was splendid on the fairways. Bradley caught three birdies in the day against a single bogey and wrapped the day with a score of two-under-par, 68.
Meanwhile, Laird managed to keep his scorecard free from bogeys and reeled only three birdies in the day.
Rickie Fowler, Luke Donald and Fredrick Jacobson compiled a score of 9-under-par to occupy the sixth place on the leaderboard. The lowest score of the trio was made by Donald, who carded a 64 with the help of seven birdies.
