Woods has little time to rest, as he'll be at next week's PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club in St Louis, his first PGA appearance since 2015.

"I was just signing my card there and realised I hadn't had a five", Fleetwood, the world No11, said. "It was either going to be a 62 or a 72". "So tomorrow is going to be one of those days I'm going to have to go out there and post a low one and see what happens".

"I should have been giving myself looks for birdies on that back nine and I was having to hole five and six-footers for par so it was nice to finish like that. Sometimes it works out; sometimes it doesn't".

The day started in terrific fashion, with four solid swings and birdies on the first and second holes. But Woods again appeared out of sorts, missing numerous fairways - no matter the club - to the left and struggling to find any consistency. He made five birdies, including a 50-foot putt from just short of the 18th green as he was making the turn.

"I putted the ball really well, made a ton of putts, " Putnam said.

"Very similar to, you know, the first day". "I just didn't hit the putts hard enough". This isn't my first time in contention to win on Sunday, so I'm far more prepared for what I'll feel tomorrow.

He also didn't prepare as well as he had for other events.

"The course is going to be tougher and totally different to the previous three rounds and it's going to feel like a major".

"I didn't warm up very well". "I pushed it hard through The Open and needed a break because this stretch coming up here is going to be a big stretch starting this week and through the playoffs".

Now Woods heads to the final major of the year and his last shot at a 15th title until next April's Masters with one of his most weird performances of the year to call on. His two-round score of 126 was a tournament record.

The South Korean, who has three top-10 British Open finishes, said: "Winning this tournament has always been my goal for the year".

It leaves the former world No.1 Day in solo fourth, four shots back of leader Justin Thomas.

This was Tiger's swan song at Akron, a place he has thoroughly dominated throughout the years to the tune of eight victories. This will be the last WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone, as this event will be replaced in the World Golf Championships rotation by the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, which will make its debut on the PGA Tour schedule next season. "I'm playing to win". I'm in a great position, I'm enjoying my golf.
