A last round of even par 70 was good enough for Tiger to take the spoils in the Bridgestone Invitational tournament at Firestone Country Club with a seven shot victory. He thought that was pretty OK, so did his son, and they are looking forward to next week and picking up Major number 15;
” That was pretty cool. This week was nice, I was able to get the lead and I held it, and it was awfully special for me to have him here to witness it because he understands it now. He understands when I make birdie, when I make par, and he understands the difference. Do I want it any more? No, it’s the same, each and every major, I always want them. I’ve been successful 14 times, and hopefully next week will be 15.”
Tied second place with Henrik Stenson was Keegan Bradley, the defending champion, finishing at -8 under par, Keegan said coming second was a big event;
” It was a really weird feeling because it was like a tournament within a tournament, I felt like, coming in second is a big accomplishment considering Tiger had such a big lead. It’s very tough to give Tiger that many shots. The round he shot on Friday was pretty special. You know, I hate to sit here and go on and on about how good he is, but he is. It’s difficult because I really want to get up there and contend with him, but this week he’s playing really well.”
Sharing a distant fourth place at -6 under par were Zach Johnson, Miguel A Jimenez and Jason Dufner.
