Day makes up ground in broken round
Walker edged ahead of overnight leader Thomas Pieters of Belgium when he rolled in an eight footer for birdie at the 15th. It's produced winners like Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, who has won the event eight times. But on a Firestone course on which he has never seriously contended, he was efficient as ever.
They were at 9-under 201.
One shot behind was Australia's Scott Hend, who got into his first Bridgestone Invitational on a loophole and posted a 63 even with two three-putt bogeys.
It is Matsuyama's second World Golf Championships victory, after the HSBC Champions in Shanghai previous year. When that tournament never came together, organizers agreed to take the victor of the Order of Merit from the previous year.
Most of the other highly ranked stars in the tourney have a ton of work to do in the final round if they are going to have any chance of stealing a victory.
The Cavan girl, the current number one amateur in the world, carded a one-under-par 71 yesterday, which included three birdies and two bogeys.
Australian Scott Hend staked a claim to what would be his most significant win in tournament golf when he reeled off a stunning third round of 63 at the Firestone Country Club in Akron in OH to be just one behind the joint leaders at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.
Frustration proved the order of the back nine as McIlroy had to settle for mid-range birdie putts, many of which shaved the hole and stayed out.
"I hit a poor drive and just laid up", he said. Getting the wedges dialed in, and making his share of putts, has been holding him back.
But McIlroy missed makeable chances at 13 and 16 as he settled for six closing pars which kept him at six under alongside Adam Hadwin and an erratic Charley Hoffman, who offset four birdies with three bogeys in a rollercoaster inward half.
"Honing in the wedges with that distance control has been the key, and I think especially the scoring irons", Johnson said.
Spieth, meanwhile, needed to channel his inner Hend. Pieters is a three-time victor on the European Tour who showed his awesome potential at the Ryder Cup previous year, and now has his best chance to win in the U.S.
He also had a three-shot deficit going into the final round of the tournament in 2014 before taking down Sergio Garcia by two strokes to complete the second of three huge wins in a row after the Open and before the PGA Championship.
