Bridgestone Invitational Update: Tiger Woods rolls to eighth win at Firestone

By Michael Beaven Published: August 4, 2013

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.

After a second-round 61 in which he flirted with 59, Woods ended up at 15-under 265 to easily beat defending champ Keegan Bradley and Henrik Stenson.

Woods’ mastery at Firestone Country Club allowed him to again match Sam Snead’s PGA Tour record for wins in an event.  Snead won the Greater Greensboro Open eight times. Earlier this year, Woods won at Bay Hill for the eighth time.

As if he weren’t already the favorite next week in the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, the lopsided victory reinforced it.

No one ever got within 6 shots all day of the world’s No. 1.
