Furyk leads Oosthuizen by 1 at Firestone


Jim Furyk is one round away from becoming the third wire-to-wire winner in the history of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Furyk shot an even-par 70 in the third round at Firestone Country Club's South Course to maintain a one-shot lead over Louis Oosthuizen at 11 under.

Keegan Bradley is third at 7 under, one shot ahead of Rory McIlroy and Steve Stricker.

A trio is tied for fifth at 5 under, including Bo Van Pelt, Justin Rose and John Senden.

Tiger Woods got back to even par for the week, shooting a 68 to trail Furyk by 11 shots. Branden Grace, Woods' playing partner for a third consecutive day, shot a 66 to reach 2 under.

On Sunday, Furyk will look to join Woods (2000) and Stewart Cink (2004) as the only players to have led this event from start to finish.
