Tiger Woods kept his big lead on Saturday as he cruised to a 2-under 68 in the third round of the WGC - Bridgestone Invitational.

Woods, who led by six or more throughout the round, ended 54 holes at 15- under-par 195. He will go for his eighth win at this event on Sunday.

Leading by seven entering the round, Woods birdied the first two holes to quickly move to 15-under. Defending champion Keegan Bradley tried to keep pace as he eagled the second on the South Course at Firestone Country Club, but Bradley bogeyed the third and it was all Woods from there.

Henrik Stenson quietly climbed into second place with a third-round 67. He is alone in second at minus-8. Jason Dufner, who got within six a couple of times, also posted a 67. Dufner is alone in third at 7-under 203.

Luke Donald (68), Bill Haas (69) and Chris Wood (70) share fourth place at minus-6. Bradley tripped to a 1-over 71 and dipped into a share of seventh with Miguel Angel Jimenez (65) at 5-under 205.

Masters titlist Adam Scott shot 66, the third-best score of the day, to move into a share of ninth at minus-3.

British Open champ Phil Mickelson (67) and U.S. Open winner Justin Rose (69) are among 11 players tied for 17th at even-par 210.
