Rose pulls out of WGC-Bridgestone

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

The company next year sponsors the Senior Players Championship at Firestone, while the WGC event moves to Memphis, Tennessee. He returns to Firestone this week for what is likely the final time, as the PGA Tour stalwart hosts the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational one past year before the tournament moves to Memphis and becomes the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Lahiri is trying to get back to top-50, while Sharma is trying to gain a PGA Tour card. "Tiger has proved that with here, with Bay Hill, with Torrey Pines, with. well, actually, anywhere".

"Also, this is away from the stadium golf that we seem to play a lot now on Tour, and I'm just excited to be here and be able to play".

"This place is like Augusta for him".

And it was the seventh time he shot 66 or better in the opening round of this tournament; he won five of the previous six times.

That was his last good chance to win a tournament.

Donald Trump on Iran: 'If they want to meet, I'll meet'
Mr Trump said he had "no preconditions" for a meeting with the Iranians, adding: "If they want to meet, I'll meet". Firstly, Trump has sought to meet his Iranian counterpart numerous times in the past already, without success.

"I've always been a fan of this golf course since first playing here in 1997", Woods told reporters Wednesday.

"And now it feels like I can play with them and, you know, I don't feel intimidated in any way". "I've never been in this position before, and so I'll have to get on my game and play well these last couple of weeks".

World number one Dustin Johnson, who bounced back from his missed cut at Carnoustie with a Canadian Open win last week, hasn't enjoyed that kind of sustained success in Akron, where his victory in 2016 is his only top-10 finish in eight starts. "I still need to train really hard and limit how much I do practice, the wear and tear on the body, because I'm going to be putting it through its paces in tournament play, which as we all know, we hit the ball harder in tournaments than we do in practice". If it does, imagine how high expectations will be for Woods at next week's PGA Championship.

Cape Town - Francesco Molinari celebrated his Open Championship victory by sharing the Claret Jug with those who he says believed he was capable of becoming a Major champion long before he did. There are also plenty of really good players who are in the middle tier range relative to the field like Zach Johnson, Adam Scott, and last years victor Hideki Matsuyama. "And I don't think anyone could, to be honest".

"When you go out on the course and you're playing with some of the best players in the world, you confront yourself with them", he said. He won at Firestone two years ago and, like Woods, calls it one of his favorite stops of the year because it is big, tree-lined and doesn't have many frills.
