AKRON, Ohio — With an elite field chasing the lead, Tiger Woods decided to play keep-away. Already up by a staggering seven shots through 36 holes thanks to a career-tying best of 61 in the second round, Woods shot a solid 2-under 68 on Saturday in the Bridgestone Invitational to maintain that same seven-stroke lead. It was as if he was turning around and daring the world's best players to come after him.
