Sergio Garcia stretched his lead to as many as six shots Saturday in the Bridgestone Invitational before storms got in the way.

Garcia ended his streak of 37 holes without a bogey on the 14th hole. He still was 3-under par for the day and had a five-shot lead over Rory McIlroy and Marc Leishman.

The final group was on the 16th hole when storms moved into the area. The third round began in the morning because of the threat of storms, and it was likely they would finish the round later Saturday.

Tiger Woods finished his round and it wasn't very good. He made only one birdie in a round of 72 and was 15 shots behind. Phil Mickelson also finished with a 69. He was 17 shots back.
