2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational: TV Schedule, Tee Times, Pairings For Sunday's Final Round

Despite being one of the only men in contention not to shoot under par on Saturday, 54-hole leader Jim Furyk will still take a one-stroke advantage into Sunday's final round at Firestone Country Club in the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Furyk carded an even-par round of 70 on Saturday to keep his grip on a lead that he has yet to relinquish thus far in the tournament, but is now only one shot ahead of challenger Louis Oosthuizen, who posted a 68 to reach 10-under par. And due to poor weather projections for the Akron area on Sunday, the two men will be joined by Keegan Bradley (7-under) in the Sunday's final group as tournament officials elected to push up all tee times.

While all eyes will be fixated on whether Furyk and Oosthuizen can both hold on for an epic finish down the stretch, the action in the second-to-last group could prove to be just as exciting if one of the leaders slips up. Rory McIlroy and Steve Stricker, both at 6-under, will be paired by long-drive artist Bo Van Pelt (5-under) in a three-man group that has all of the star-power but none of the pressure afforded to the final grouping of the day.
