Woods falls out of contention as Scott, Fowler join a crowd at the top at Firestone

AKRON, Ohio - Adam Scott and Rickie Fowler are part of the crowd atop the leaderboard at the Bridgestone Invitational.

Tiger Woods is nowhere near them.

Showing a sloppy side in his first tournament in three months, Woods missed a 2-foot par putt and didn't make enough birdies to keep up with his mistakes Friday. He shot 1-over 71 and was eight shots behind on another calm day at Firestone.
