Ishikawa one shot back heading into final round at Firestone

Ryo Ishikawa fired a third round 64 and at 11-under is only one shot behind leader Adam Scott at the WGC-Bridgestone. Ishikawa, 19, and playing this season for Japan, will try to win his first PGA Tour event against a star filled leaderboard including Jason Day, Luke Donald, Rickie Fowler, and Rory McILroy.

"I think it’s a little too early to think about winning this whole thing as of now," he said. "But I do feel that I was able to play at a pretty good level, pretty high level today. Actually I am a little bit surprised of how I performed out there."

He will tee off with Adam Scott at 2pm Eastern time Sunday.
