Grace fires front-nine 30

AKRON, Ohio -- Branden Grace spent the first two rounds of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational playing with one of his idols, Tiger Woods.

Grace found himself in Woods' group on Saturday, as well, after opening with a 72 and reeling off 18 pars on Friday. The South African is on a tear, too -- making five birdies on the front nine to turn in 30, which is one shot off the record.

Grace, who has three European Tour victories this year, two-putted from 33 feet at the second hole for his first birdie. His other birdie putts have come from 5, 7, 5 and 10 feet so he’s now moved to 3 under for the tournament.

Woods, on the other hand, made the turn in 34 and is 1 over for the tournament.
