Furyk races out to the lead at Firestone
Fri, 03 Aug 2012 11:25a.m.
Jim Furyk finally made some birdies - a lot of them - for a 7-under 63 to take the lead Thursday in the Bridgestone Invitational.
On a warm day with little wind, Furyk took advantage of the pristine conditions at Firestone to build a two-shot lead over Lee Slattery of England after one round of this World Golf Championship.
Tiger Woods, a seven-time winner at Firestone, looked as if he might be part of the leaderboard until his last six holes. He had to lay up with his third shot on a par 5 and three-putted from 25 feet on the 18th for an even-par 70.
Defending champion Adam Scott, in his first tournament since losing a late lead in the British Open, four-putted from just inside 10 feet and had 71.
