Tiger Woods won the Bridgestone Invitational golf tournament for the eighth time. He used seven shots to win the game in the even-par 70 course. He parred 16 holes to win the match on Sunday. This win matches his own feat of maximum victories in a single PGA Championship.
In the words of Woods, it was quite difficult to shoot 62 or 63 in the breezy condition. He went on saying that if he had not gave away any shots and played his natural game, he would perhaps force others to shoot super low on the golf course that was not going to renounce under these circumstances.
Woods is excited as his 4-year-old son visualizes the winning of a tournament for the first time. In addition to this, he expressed that this win is special to him not only because his son accompanied him in the match, but also because he did not win any tournament for last couple of years. Tiger finished second at 15 under 265 that makes the game quite easy for him to win by beating Henrik Stenson and Kegan Bradley.
In an interview, reporters asked Bradley whether he liked to witness Woods dominate the golf course as he did in the past. Bradley clearly expressed his views about the matter by saying that he did not want to be contended only by watching the smart game of Woods.
It is noted that this triumph also matches Sam Snead’s PGA tour record for winning an event eight times. Snead won the Greater Greensboro Open for record times. In addition to this, the victory brings Tiger one-step forward to touch the record of Snead winning 82 tournaments.
Critics are of the opinion that this victory makes Wood favorite in the PGA Championship that is going to start in the next week. Bradley who won the tournament previous year completed 70 while playing with woods. Jason Dufner, Zach Johnson, and Miguel Angel Jimenez were tied for forth.
The source also stated interesting information for them who are betting that Woods would not win the tournament next week at Oak Hill. As per information, Woods won both the PGA Championship and Bridgestone in the same year three times in his entire golf career.
The native of California, Tiger Woods consider Ohio as his second home as in the place he has won 13 times and among them five triumph is at the Memorial Tournament. It is notable that Woods has enjoyed five victories this year. He won the Bridgestone Invitational and the NEC Invitational by playing a smart game that reveals his mastery on the game.
Roc McIlroy, the winner of 2012 PGA Championship stated that the second round played by Tiger was unique. The second round created the difference between Tiger and Bredley. He also added that there is nothing surprising that Tiger played the game well but the mastery he has showed in the previous game revealed his excellence. Tiger himself was quiet satisfied with the game.
