Woods gets 1 last crack at Firestone for WGC final edition

Woods gets 1 last crack at Firestone for WGC final edition”

I've always been a fan of this golf course and remember playing here before it was even a World Golf Championship.

Jason Day and Tiger Woods are wowing enormous crowds by trading blows in a sharp display of golf midway through the opening round at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

The 14-time major victor made it into the field at Ohio's Firestone Country Club thanks to his joint sixth-place finish at last month's Open at Carnoustie in Scotland. Both McIlroy and Woods can be lethal at this course.

Matsuyama, once in the mix to reach No. 1 in the world, now is at No. 16. He started his PGA Tour season in January at No. 647. After five top-10s in 13 tournaments, he is now No. 50. "I think a few years back, obviously, I was competing against them, but I always felt like they had something that I didn t have".

Suspects Steal Shark From Aquarium By Disguising It As Baby
Monday night, the aquarium announced that employees were on their way to retrieve Miss Helen - and she was alive. According to police, the suspect allowed police to enter the home and pointed them to where the shark was.

"This event has been very special to me over the years".

Bridgestone decided not to renew as title sponsor of the World Golf Championship, said to be an annual price tag of about $15 million.

Including his last TOUR win - some five years ago.

"I'm excited to be back", Woods told a pre-tournament press conference. "We certainly understand it".

Trump willing to shut down government over border security
Trump on Monday said he had no "red line" for precisely what he would require from Congress, and he made no comment on timing. McConnell, asked about a shutdown during a radio interview in Kentucky, said it was not going to happen.

"It's a long and narrow golf course, a bit old-styled with mature trees lining the fairways".

In 2000, Woods struck one of the most famous shots of his career, hitting an 8-iron in the dark to a foot, providing an appropriate exclamation mark to an 11-stroke victory and historic season.

"My game's gotten better and good enough where I feel like I can win again out here on Tour", he said. He defeated Jim Furyk in a seven-hole playoff in 2001 and shot a career-low 61 in 2013 en route to his last win. He won by eight shots in 2007 against Rory Sabbatini, who had said earlier in the year that Woods looked "beatable as ever". 3, but at No. 20 in the USA team standings, Woods is unlikely to nab one of the top eight spots on points, which are determeined following the PGA Championship.

Ticket sales spiked when it was disclosed after the British Open that Woods reached No. 50 and would be back at Firestone. He won at Firestone two years ago and, like Woods, calls it one of his favorite stops of the year because it is big, tree-lined and doesn't have many frills.

Rose, who was due to play alongside Ryder Cup teammate Henrik Stenson over the first two rounds, has not yet confirmed whether he will be fit to play at the PGA Championship next week. "You really know where your game stands when you re playing this golf course". He also has eight at Torrey Pines and Bay Hill.
