10:39 am on 7 August 2011

Australian golfer Adam Scott continues to lead the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio.

Scott shot a four under par 66 on the penultimate day and will take a one-stroke lead over compatriot Jason Day and big mover Ryo Ishikawa into the final day.

The Japanese teenager shot a sizzling six under 64 to climb eight places.

Tiger Woods again mixed the good with the bad on his PGA Tour return as he toiled to a two over 72 in only his third tournament round in three months.

Meanwhile New Zealander Danny Lee also had a good day at the latest Nationwide event in Nebraska.

Lee's four shots off the pace in a three-way tie for second heading into the final round after shooting a five under 66.

But American JJ Killeen backed up his 66 and 64 with an impressive 63 to top the leaderboard at eight under.

Lynnette Brooky's dropped down the leaderboard at the Ladies European Tour event, the Ladies Irish Open after a one under 71.

Brooky's now seven shots behind at the halfway stage.
