AKRON, Ohio -- Tiger Woods didn't extend his lead on Saturday at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.
But his round of 68 still enabled the world No. 1 to keep the margin at seven strokes, which is even more formidable now that the competition has been trimmed to a final 18 holes.
Woods has played 54 holes at Firestone Country Club, where he's already won seven times, in 15 under. Henrik Stenson is alone in second at 8 under after Saturday's 67 while Jason Dufner is another stroke behind after bogeying the 18th hole for the same score.
Luke Donald, Bill Haas and Chris Wood are tied at 6 under while Miguel Angel Jimenez rode the day's low roound of 65 into a tie with Keegan Bradley at 5 under.
Phil Mickelson, who won The Open Championship in his last start, broke par for the first time this week with a 67 to get to even for the tournament while Rory McIlroy's 69 left him tied at the same number.
