Justin Thomas Holds The 54 Hole Lead At Firestone

Tommy Fleetwood produced a flawless second round at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to join fellow Englishman Ian Poulter and American Justin Thomas in the lead at the halfway stage, Sky Sports report.

Eight-time WGC-Bridgestone champion Tiger Woods dropped three shots after a 73 to plummet to three under.

Rory McIlroy also had his issues, misjudging several wedge shots, but at day's end both he and Woods were within striking distance at the World Golf Championships event.

"Very similar to, you know, the first day". I was just going to be aggressive and see what happens. Just wasn't as sharp as I needed to be, especially with everyone making a bunch of birdies.

He hit only five of 14 fairways and just 10 of 18 greens but had his fewest putts of the week with 27.

Thomas fell behind early with two bogeys in three holes, and a 10-foot par save in between from behind the fourth green kept him from falling farther behind. The purse for the Bridgestone Invitational is among the higher victor pools on the PGA Tour at $10 million.

"I think what he learned is that he has to play his game and not force it, " said Thomas' caddie, Jimmy Johnson, who has been working with Thomas for three years after a long stint with Steve Stricker.
