Tiger Woods shoots 73, falls out of contention at WGC-Bridgestone

Tiger Woods shoots 73, falls out of contention at WGC-Bridgestone

"With a three-shot lead, I obviously knew that I needed to play well, but you kind of have a little bit of wiggle room and you feel like you maybe play a little too conservative, but I was able to kind of dwell on past learning experiences and you always try to get it higher". "This is my first PGA Tour win with them here, so it's pretty cool". He finished in the top 15 in three of the four rounds in strokes gained on approach shots.

"It's great we keep getting in position", he told Golf Channel.

The Australian raced into the reckoning with three straight birdies from the 10th, but he bogeyed the next two and then dumped a wedge into the lake guarding the front of the 16th green as he ran up a double-bogey seven.

But the eight-time victor at least signed off in style with a birdie on the 18th, his last shot at Firestone Country Club before the event moves to TPC Southwind in Memphis next year.

Woods was referring to the PGA Championship at Bellerive in St. Louis, where he will head Sunday night to get ready for a course he hasn't seen since 2001.

Tiger Woods plunged 11 shots behind after a poor 73.

"Things could have certainly gone better", Woods said.

Again, Justin Thomas is good at golf.

Unfortunately, this whole tutoring thing means it's going to be even harder for me to get Victory Royales going forward! Some parents get all judgey and share those memes that remind us of how much we all played outside as a kid .

Jason Day, who threw away a chance to win the Bridgestone Invitational two years ago, had a 69 and was four shots behind. That's one of the challenges as we age, is trying to recover for the next day.

Of everything Thomas has accomplished in his young career, from last year's FedExCup victory to his triumph at the 2017 PGA Championship, he was missing only a World Golf Championship title from his resume. We underrate how hard it is to present sufficient encores to elite seasons (which is what previous year was), but Thomas has made it look fairly simple with maybe the most complete game on tour. "This is one of the most toughest courses in the entire country", said Ken Wilmoth from North Canton.

Sweetest of all was seeing his grandparents, especially the embrace after he tapped in for par to finish at 15-under 265.

He also finished third and fifth in his two appearances in the old World Series of Golf that was played at Firestone prior to the start of the World Golf Championship events. The World Series of Golf began in 1962, and it became an official PGA Tour event in 1976.

Bridgestone shifted its title sponsorship to the PGA Tour Champions, which will bring its Senior Players Championship to Firestone next year.

The World Golf Championship will move to Memphis in 2019. He went 1 over the rest of the way for a 68, leaving him five shots behind. Marc Leishman, who played alongside Woods, shot 67 and joined Kyle Stanley (70) five shots behind.

Earlier this week, Rory McIlroy, who was paired with Thomas on Sunday, described his frequent practice partner as "nasty".
