Tiger Woods played safe and smart with a big lead, parring 16 holes in an even-par 70 Sunday to coast to a 7-shot victory at the Bridgestone Invitational for his eighth win at the event — matching the PGA Tour record he shares for victories in a single tournament.

KELLY BARNES: Please welcome Tiger Woods to the interview room. Tiger, you've got a seven‑shot lead going into Sunday. You obviously have an impeccable record. When you hold the lead going into the final round, talk to us a little bit about how you feel heading into Sunday.
TIGER WOODS: Yeah, I feel pretty good. You know, today was a day that I didn't quite have it, but I scored. And that's the name of the game is posting a number, and I did today. Grinded my way around that golf course today. It was playing a little blustery.To read more or comment...
