Day, Piercy tied for lead at Bridgestone
AKRON, Ohio (AP) Jason Day hit only three fairways and still managed a 1-under 69 to share the lead Saturday with Scott Piercy at the Bridgestone Invitational.
Day hoped to try to expand his one-shot lead at Firestone. Instead, he goes into the final round of this World Golf Championship in a tie with Piercy, who had a 67 and is coming off a runner-up finish in the U.S. Open.
Day and Piercy were at 5-under 205.
Seven players were separated by just three shots going into the final round. That includes U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson, who had a 66 and was only three shots behind.
Jordan Spieth also was in the mix until a triple bogey on the 16th hole sent him to a 71. He was five shots back.
