BLAINE, Minn. - Kenny Perry won the 3M Championship one last time, closing with a 3-under 69 for a three-stroke victory in the PGA Tour Champions event that is being replaced by the PGA Tour's 3M Open.
Marc Leishman carded a 67 to sit a shot back of fellow Australian Day, in a tie for fifth, and is also confident of making a final-round charge. Johnson bogeyed the last hole for a 64 and shared third with Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark, who also had a 64.
Thomas will go down as the last victor of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. That made his steady play all the more meaningful for him. Along with the first place price of $1,700,000, second place takes home $1,070,000 and third place receives $587,000.
Thomas' grandparents witnessed him win a PGA Tour event in person for the first time on Sunday.
The Bridgestone Invitational supports the Akron Children's Hospital and University Hospital's Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital.
The World Golf Championship will move to Memphis in 2019. It will be renamed the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. "The golf course is playing very soft, very receptive. But continuing to play here was not a reality". The 44-year-old Texan won the last of his four PGA Tour titles in 2007.
Largely sidelined by years of back trouble that led to spinal fusion surgery in April of 2017, the 14-time major champion remains in search of his first victory since the 2013 Bridgestone. The final WGC event, the HSBC Champions, which will be played in late October, pays out $9.75 million. "And then I had some putts where, you know, I had some good looks at it to turn it around, build some momentum, I didn't make anything".

I want only players who play with a very high level of motivation. It will also be his first experience of England's iconic stadium. Cesc Fabregas may miss out due to a minor knee problem.
Paul was a career club professional and played at Firestone in the 1960 US PGA Championship, missing the 54-hole cut.
"I felt like even the first two rounds I played OK, but I struggled on the greens a little bit", Johnson said.
Thomas will take enormous confidence into his PGA Championship title defence this week as he seeks a second major title.
It was a lot more hard, a lot firmer and I didn't quite hit it as well today but we just had such control of everything. "The results and the scores didn't show it". Add those two things up and throw in the fact that Bellerive is going to play soft and long, and you can see why I'm picking the four-time major victor this week.
McIlroy finished the back nine with consecutive bogeys and never recovered. I'm excited for it.
