WGC-Bridgestone Invitational Odds, TV Schedule, Tee Times: Tiger Returns to Firestone!


WGC-Bridgestone Invitational is being hosted for the last time for the foreseeable future by Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio. In 2019, the event will move to Memphis and become the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. With this being the last stop in Akron, everyone was hoping that Tiger Woods, who has won at Firestone eight times over the course of his career, would inch his way into the top 50 in the world rankings in order to gain entry. He did just that with his T6 performance at The Open last month.

Woods will be the main storyline this week for plenty of reasons, just check out the video above to see why. Woods is also coming off his best performance in a major championship since a T4 at the 2013 Masters. I’ve written extensively about how this comeback is shaping up to be a good one, and this week it could all potentially come together for Woods to collect his 19th WGC win. Woods currently has 18 WGC wins; the guy behind him, Dustin Johnson, has five.

Of course, Woods, who will tee off on Thursday on the tenth tee at 10:20 AM alongside Jason Day, will face one of the toughest fields in golf as 49 of the top 50 golfers in the world will be participating this week (Justin Rose withdrew due to back spasms).

My Pick

My gut is telling me to pick Dustin Johnson this week, but I’m going to go with Tiger because I WANT TO SEE IT! This would be Woods’ ninth win at Firestone and not only would it be a fitting place for his first win during this comeback, but also a great way for Firestone to go out.
