Justin Rose pulls out of WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

‘Special to me:’ Tiger Woods reflects on last Bridgestone Invitational in Akron

After undergoing spinal fusion surgery in April a year ago, Woods was unsure that he would ever be able to play golf again, let alone to the sort of level which made him the most successful player of his generation.

Woods, an eight-time victor at Firestone, took the advantage at the hard par-4 18th hole (his ninth) when he drained a 50-foot monster birdie putt to climb to three-under-par and three shots back of Stanley.

"My game's gotten better and good enough where I feel like I can win again out here on Tour", he said.

And if so, it would come in the final Bridgestone Invitational as the event is heading next year to Memphis as the WGC - FedEx St. Jude Invitational.

World champion Lewis Hamilton rules in Hungary to stretch his lead
Team radio told Bottas to give the position back to Ricciardo, who did well to finish fourth after starting from 12th in the grid. The result meant Hamilton strengthened his grip on the lead of the championship, with his advantage over Vettel now at 24 points.

"It's always been one of my favourite courses on the entire tour and it's unfortunate it is leaving".

"The people have always come out and supported this event".

"This event has been very special to me over the years, and it's sad to see it leave Firestone", Woods said.

Throw in his triumph in Australia at a tri-sanctioned tournament by the Asian, European and Australian Tours in February, Kiradech certainly has reason to feel like he's on top of the world but he knows only a win at the iconic Firestone Country Club this week can put the exclamation mark to his impressive 2018 campaign. Chappell is having a pretty good year so far, accumulating 4 top-ten finishes, including a T-6 at The Open Championship. "The first two times that I played at Firestone, I was not consistent with my ball control but now, I can move the ball around and can go for certain shots". It's a very simple, straightforward golf course, which we don't see very often anymore.

ED blames MDC Alliance leaders for violence
It followed a surprise press conference at which he stunned observers and called for voters to reject ZANU-PF, his former party. But EU observers had criticised in the general election.

Francesco Molinari, grouped with Johnson in the first two rounds, hasn t found Firestone too hospitable, never finishing better than a tie for 15th in seven prior starts. He would need to be among the top 30 to qualify for the Tour Championship, which comes after a week break and begins on September 20. But I do have to say that when I saw him hit driver, with the exception of one or two holes, he was hitting it well and left me wondering why he wasn't hitting it more.

Woods will contest the opening round in the company of Australia's Jason Day. If it does, imagine how high expectations will be for Woods at next week's PGA Championship.

Asked how he, as vice captain, might pitch himself to Furyk as a player right now, Woods replied with a big smile, "What would be the word?"
