AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Sergio Garcia has posted a 3-under 67 and leads the Bridgestone Invitational by three shots after three rounds. He ended his streak of 37 holes without a bogey on the 14th hole. Garcia and other had to wait out a delay due to storms before finishing up.

Rory McIlroy gained some ground on the leader by finishing his 66 with consecutive birdies that put the British Open champ alone in second place. First round-leader Marc Leishman shot a 68 and trail by five shots.

Tiger Woods shot 72 and is 15 shots behind, while Phil Mickelson finished with a 69 and is 17 back.

Bubba Watson shot a 73 and is out of contention but did unleash a 424-yard drive on the 659-yard, 16th hole. It’s the longest drive of the year on the PGA Tour.
