Justin Thomas is playing just like he wants one week out of the PGA Championship at Bellerive Golf Course in St. Louis, MO as he leads the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational by three shots after three rounds.
Thomas, who defends his title next week in the PGA Championship, goes after his third victory of the season, but first in five months.
He finished at 15-under 265 at Firestone, while fellow American Kyle Stanley carded 68 for second place on 11 under.

Meanwhile, Subtropical Storm Debby formed far out over the north Atlantic, but it was expected to be a short-lived storm. A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Big Island interior, summits, north, east and south, including Kohala and Kona.
Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen and world number one Dustin Johnson leapfrogged the field with matching six-under 64s.
Four-time major champion Rory McIlroy put up a clunker on Sunday, recording a 73 to finish in a tie for sixth at eight under. Rory McIlroy, playing in the final group with Thomas, said he was exhausted of finishing second this year.
Tiger Woods, an eight-times victor at Firestone, finished 15 strokes back after a 73. Ian Poulter (70) also was three back.
