Justin Thomas wins the Bridgestone Invitational

AKRON, Ohio (AP) Justin Thomas never let anyone closer than two
shots and closed with a 1-under 69 to win the Bridgestone
Invitational for his third PGA Tour title this season.

The final World Golf Championship at Firestone lacked drama Sunday.

Tiger Woods, an eight-time winner at Firestone, tried to go out
with a bang and ended with a dud. He shot 73 to finish 15 shots
behind. Rory McIlroy, playing in the final group with Thomas, said
he was tired of finishing second this year. Not to worry. He shot
73 and tied for sixth.

Jason Day and Kyle Stanley tried to make a move, only to stumble
with bogeys.

Thomas captured his first World Golf Championship and heads to his
title defense at the PGA Championship with plenty of momentum.
