AKRON, Ohio — Justin Thomas never let anyone closer than two shots Sunday and closed with a 1-under 69 to win the Bridgestone Invitational for his third PGA Tour title this season.

The final World Golf Championship at Firestone lacked drama.

Tiger Woods, an eight-time winner at Firestone, tried to go out with a bang and ended with a dud. He shot 73 to finish 15 shots behind. Rory McIlroy, playing in the final group with Thomas, said he was tired of finishing second this year. Not to worry. He shot 73 and tied for sixth.

Jason Day and Kyle Stanley tried to make a move, only to stumble with bogeys.

Thomas captured his first World Golf Championship and heads to his title defense at the PGA Championship with plenty of momentum.

LPGA: Georgia Hall of England reeled in longtime leader Pornanong Phatlum in a final-round duel at Lythan St. Annes, England, to win the Women’s British Open for her first major title.

Roared on by the large galleries in her home country, the 22-year-old Hall only took the lead for the first time after a 20-foot putt for birdie at the 16th hole and stayed steady to post a 5-under 67. She won by two shots over Pornanong (70).

CHAMPIONS: Kenny Perry won the 3M Championship one last time, closing with a 3-under 69 at Blaine, Minnesota, for a three-stroke victory in the event that is being replaced by the PGA Tour’s 3M Open.

Also the 2014 and 2015 winner, the 57-year-old Perry matched Hale Irwin’s tournament record of three victories in the final edition of the event that started in 1993.

EUROPEAN: Gaganjeet Bhullar of India held off a record-breaking charge from Anthony Quale of Australia to win the Fiji International by one stroke at Sigaztoka, Fiji.

Bhullar, the overnight leader by a shot, produced his best round of the tournament, a 6-under 66, to move to 14-under. Quayle shot a course-record 9-under 63 but fell just short of the winner.
