Day shares WGC Bridgestone lead


Jason Day holds a share of the lead after the third round of the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio.

The Australian led by a single stroke going into Saturday's play but Scott Piercy's superb 67 bettered Day's one-under-par 69 to ensure the American is level with the world number one heading into the final round.

Day will be pleased with his score after he managed to find just three of 14 fairways with one of his 'successful' attempts coming courtesy of the ball fortunately bouncing off a marshall's foot.

The Australian needed to show all his fight to dig out his score and was an example of the competitive strength which makes him a contender even when not near his best.

Sweden's David Lingmerth is a shot off the pace after a bogey on 16 saw him sign for a 69 while Brian Stuard lies a shot further back on -3.

US Open champion Dustin Johnson fired a stunning four-under 66 - the lowest round of the day - to move into contention on two under, just three shots behind the joint leaders.

Johnson had started on two over after a disappointing 73 on Friday, but he roared back into contention on the front nine by grabbing four birdies in six holes from the fourth.

The 31-year-old gained another stroke with a huge 45-foot putt on 11 but a bogey on 14 saw him give that back.

Jordan Spieth meanwhile had moved to three-under-par courtesy of birdies at 11 and 14 but found the water on the 16th, eventually tapping in for a tripe-bogey eight.

Spieth managed to birdie the 17th but bogeyed 18 and now lies five shots behind Day and Piercy.
