Tiger Conquers Firestone, Again

Tiger Woods knows Firestone better than any course in the country.  He proved it with his seven stroke, -15 under par overall mark in capturing the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone.Woods was the favorite before this tournament began.  Not just because he is Tiger Woods, but because Firestone, for him, is as good as some courses are bad to him.  Tiger shot a 61 in Round 2 this week which could have easily been lower, has now won eight times at Firestone, five times this season and 79 times on the PGA Tour, trailing only Sam Snead (82) for the most wins all-time.

Woods to The Golf Channel:  “I don’t know what it is; it just fits my eye. I’ve felt comfortable here for some reason.”

This is the perfect time to mention that Woods doesn’t get along with Oak Hill Country Club, site of next week’s PGA Championship.  The good news, however, is that Woods didn’t take this week off leading up to a major.  Instead, he won by seven strokes, got some confidence, and will now have no choice but to face Oak Hill head-on in Rochester.

Major 15 awaits.  PGA Tour victory #80 awaits.  And Oak Hill is one of the toughest tests in golf.

Will Tiger be major-ready for four straight days?
