Tiger Woods SLAMS WGC Bridgestone display… I played like c

Tiger Woods SLAMS WGC Bridgestone display… I played like c

In 10 tournaments from 1999 through 2009 (he missed 2008), Woods won seven times and had no finish worse than fourth.

They saw a one-man show.

Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy battled inconsistent wedge play, his frustration eased by a holed bunker shot at the 17th, which helped him join South Korean Kim Si-woo three back.

Woods was asked after his round if he felt healthy, as many viewers had spent the day on social media speculating whether Tiger may have been playing with a stiff back.

Tiger Woods, an eight-time victor at Firestone, started 11 shots behind and figured he would go out with a bang by playing aggressively.

Thomas was far from his best as he played the opening 12 holes in level par and both Stanley and Jason Day eventually closed to within two shots, only to promptly bogey the next two holes.

As for Firestone, it has been an wonderful run for Woods at the course that will no longer be host for the tournament - it is moving to Memphis next year. Barring an incredible string of birdies, Woods will have to settle for a forgettable finish with one week left until the PGA Championship.

Tiger Woods preparing for hectic stretch of golf
Asked about playing in the Ryder Cup the following week, Woods said he'd have no problem playing two matches in a day if asked. He could probably take two, three weeks off and he s going to get it around here fine, because he knows how to.

Woods, an eight-time victor of the Bridgestone at Firestone Country Club in Akron, said his three-over 73 had nothing to do with any injury or illness.

Andrew Putnam took the lead Saturday in the Barracuda Championship, three points ahead of playing partner Sam Saunders in the PGA Tour's only modified Stableford scoring event. We underrate how hard it is to present sufficient encores to elite seasons (which is what a year ago was), but Thomas has made it look fairly simple with maybe the most complete game on tour.

Thomas finished at 15-under 265 for a four-shot victory over Kyle Stanley, who got within two shots of the lead until bogeys on the 13th and 14th holes.

There are 45 players under par out of 71 through 36 holes and Woods actually lost ground on the leaders after starting the day four strokes back. "Winning is hard. Hopefully eventually it will happen but it's great to put myself back in position again". Johnson bogeyed the last hole for a 64 and shared third with Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark, who also had a 64.

Day refuses to concede the elite 71-man event to prolific victor Thomas, whose 2017 US PGA Championship title is among eight US PGA Tour victories during the past three years. Today I didn't drive it quite as well, didn't putt quite as good as I wanted to. This isn't my first time in contention to win on Sunday, so I'm far more prepared for what I'll feel tomorrow.

"I just haven't really had the results or the score to (reflect) it". "I did not hit the ball as well today but we had so much control and I had a very clean card at the end".
