Seventy-six of the worlds best golfers will tee it up on Thursday morning in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at the Firestone Country Club South Course. The 7400 yard par 70 layout has been owned by Tiger Woods since winning the first of three Invitations here beginning in 1999. Woods has won eight times on this course, including his last win on the PGA Tour last August.
The world-class field includes the first 50 players ranked in the Official World Golf Rankings. What an event to get us ready for the last major of the year next week at Valhalla. World number one, Adam Scott will go off the first tee at 2:00PM on Thursday, and will play along side of two-time Masters Champ, Bubba Watson.
Everyone is playing for a hunk of the $9 Million Dollar purse, and the 550 FedEx Cup points. European Tour players will receive points that count toward the Race To Dubai playoffs later in the year. All players from bot Tours who have not punched tickets to Gleaneagles at this time, will be looking to impress Ryder Cup Captains as we head down the stretch toward October.
All times are Eastern ….. Enjoy!!
