Tiger stretches lead at Bridgestone Invitational.

Tiger Woods followed one of the best rounds of his life with a solid 2-under 68 on Saturday in the third round of the Bridgestone Invitational.
Woods has a seven-shot lead and is set up for a remarkable eighth victory at Firestone Country Club.
Unlike in a second-round 61 that could easily have been a 59 or even lower, Woods didn't recover from all of his errant shots.
He bogeyed the ninth, 14th and 16th holes, failing to bounce back from mediocre shots.
Yet he still was good enough to put himself in position for yet another lopsided victory, one that will likely mark him as the player to beat next week in the PGA Championship at Oak Hill.
He had a 15-under 195 total.
Henrik Stenson was second after a 67.
