AKRON, Ohio (www.incnow.tv) - Tiger Woods flirted with a sub 60 round and then settled for a ten under par 61 to grab a seven shot lead halfway through the Bridgestone Classic.

Needing to play the final four holes in two under par for a 59, Woods instead parred all four after birdies on each of the first four holes of the back nine.

The seven time winner of the Bridgestone is at 127, 15 under par, with second place Keegan Bradley next at eight under 134.
