Winning the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday had put Justin Thomas in a "great place mentally", with the timing ideal as he gears up to defend the PGA Championship title.
Justin Thomas tried valiantly to have Jarrod Lyle's yellow bucket hats shipped to OH so the world's best golfers could wear them during the WGG-Bridgestone Invitational.
Woods, an eight-times victor at Firestone, electrified the gallery with three early birdies but in the end managed only a middling 68 on a course that was there for the taking, with soft greens allowing players to fire aggressively at the pins. He started the day five off the lead and carded a three-over 73 that left him 11 adrift. Not to worry. His 73 gave him a tie for sixth.
Thomas moved away from the pack with 5 birdies in the middle of his round from holes 6 through 14.
With the US PGA Tour changing the event's name and moving it to Tennessee next year, the 14-times major winner's hopes of farewelling Akron, Ohio with a first worldwide win in five years are all but over.

"I know I'm playing well and I'm hitting my iron shots great", Day said. "To make that putt on 1 and again on 2 just kind of calmed me and got me going for the day".
But after finishing his round with a bogey, 14-time major victor Woods settled at four under with his round of 66 handing group honours to Day. I'm going to miss this place. Woods did not dispute the fact that before each of the 12 tournaments he played this year before the Bridgestone, he spent some amount of time practicing the week before the event.
"It is the first time I have cried after winning a tournament".
"He wasn't hitting it as far as he normally does", said Australian Marc Leishman, who played alongside Woods.
Former world No 1 Day pulled within two of Thomas when he rattled off three straight birdies starting at the 10th hole.
