Akron, USA: World number one Tiger Woods, seeking his eighth career victory at the World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational, fired a two-under par 68 on Saturday to keep a seven-stroke lead after 54 holes.

One day after matching the low round of his career and the Firestone Country Club course record with a 61, Woods maintained the same gap he had opened on the field on Friday, with a three-round total of 15-under par 195.

"I feel pretty good," Woods said. "Today was a day that I didn't quite have it, but I scored. And the name of the game is posting a number and I did, grinded my way around that golf course."
