Garcia in lead

Akron: Spaniard Sergio Garcia birdied the final seven holes to match the course record and storm to a three-stroke lead after the second round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational on Friday.

The British Open runner-up put on a clinic on the greens, one-putting the final 11 holes for an astonishing nine-under-par 61 on the demanding Firestone Country Club course.

Until Garcia’s late flourish, Rose seemed likely to end the day in the lead after hitting 16 greens in regulation in a near flawless tee-to-green display.

Woods was not as pleased after battling to a one-over 71 on the Firestone Country Club course where he has won eight times.
