WGC-Bridgestone Invitational Odds, TV Schedule, Tee Times: Can DJ Defend His Win?


WGC-Bridgestone Invitational Odds, TV Schedule, Tee Times: Can DJ Defend His Win?

The final WGC event of the year begins on Thursday at Firestone CC in Akron, Ohio. Last season Dustin Johnson won the WGC-Bridgestone after coming off of a win at the US Open and this year he’ll hope to repeat after a solid finish at the RBC Canadian Open. Johnson hasn’t seemed the same after that slip before the Masters, but that’s only because he hasn’t won since. As the number one golfer in the world, he cannot be overlooked, especially at this tournament.

Obviously with this being a WGC event, the top players are all in the field, including Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Hideki Matsuyama, Jon Rahm, Sergio Garcia, and Brooks Koepka.

My Pick

It would be dumb to pick against DJ this week, but I feel like Brooks Koepka has been playing some really great golf after winning the US Open. He finished tied for sixth at the British Open and has two second place finishes this season. Last season Brooks withdrew from the Bridgestone, but he finished tied for sixth in 2015 so he has had some success at Firestone.

As always, don’t bet your house on my pick.
