(AKRON, OH) – Tommy Fleetwood took advantage of another soft day of good scoring at Firestone with a 7-under 63. So did PGA champion Justin Thomas, who was particularly sharp with his putter for a 64. They shared the lead with Ian Poulter, who had a head start with his career-low 62 and backed it up decently enough Friday with a 67. They all played early and finished at 11-under 129. No one could catch them, mainly because there was just enough breeze to cause just enough doubt. Even so, 45 players from the 71-man field were under par, a rarity at Firestone. Tiger Woods, whose last victory was five years ago when he won this World Golf Championship for a record eighth time, got within four shots of the lead with a tee shot to 2 feet on the par-3 12th hole. He went 1 over the rest of the way for a 68, leaving him five shots behind. Jason Day, who threw away a chance to win at Firestone two years ago, didn't make as many as he would have liked. He still had a 66 playing in the same group with Woods and joined Kyle Stanley (68), two shots behind the leaders.
