Fowler Part of 3-way Tie as Woods Falters
AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- Adam Scott and Rickie Fowler are part of the crowd atop the leaderboard at the Bridgestone Invitational.

Tiger Woods is nowhere near them.

Showing a sloppy side in his first tournament in three months, Woods missed a 2-foot par putt and didn't make enough birdies to keep up with his mistakes Friday. He shot 1-over 71 and was eight shots behind on another calm day at Firestone.

Fowler is still searching for his first professional win and put himself in the mix by holing out for eagle on No. 3 in a wild round of 64. Scott had the lead to himself until a bogey on his final hole made him settle for a 70. Also tied for the lead was Ryan Moore, who had a 66.
