Thomas wins WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

Tiger Woods made five birdies and just one bogey in his opening round

A week before defending his PGA Championship title, Justin Thomas showed his game is in fine fettle when he blew away the field for a four-stroke victory at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio, on Sunday.

Thomas captured his first World Golf Championship and heads to his title defense at the PGA Championship with plenty of momentum.

Stanley missed a number of short putts this week but always bounced back.

He plays in the final group with Rory McIlroy, who shot a 67 and was three behind.

Tiger Woods, an eight-time victor at Firestone, tried to go out with a bang and ended with a dud.

The 14-time major victor went one under on the first nine, however, he had three bogeys, two double-bogeys and three birdies on the back nine.

World No. 10 Jason Day shot a 1-under 69 to finish the day alone in fourth place at 10 under.

Tiger Woods didn't have his best day as he shot a 3-over 73, but he salvaged a bit on the 18th when he hit the flag on his approach.
