By Michael Beaven Published: August 5, 2012
Keegan Bradley won the 2012 Bridgestone Invitational championship at Firestone Country Club on Sunday by completing 72 holes with a 13-under-par 267.
 
Bradley came from behind in the final round in dramatic fashion to capture the title on the South Course, overtaking Jim Furyk, who held a lead after each of the first three rounds.
 
Bradley, an American, made a birdie putt on the par-4, No. 18 from 15-feet, eight-inches away to finish his round at 6-under 64.
 
Furyk missed a putt from 4-feet, nine inches away that would have forced a playoff and then settled for a double-bogey. He shot a 69 to tie Steve Stricker at 12-under for the tournament in second place.
 
Furyk, an American, carded a 1-under 69 Sunday to follow up rounds of 63, 66 and 70 the previous three days.
 
Bradley and Stricker both shot a 64 Sunday. Bradley compiled rounds of 67, 69 and 67 the first three days.
 
Louis Oosthuizen finished fourth at 11-under for the tournament. Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy tied for fifth at 8-under.
 
Bradley made birdies on Nos. 3, 7, 10, 11, 14 and 16.
 
Furyk birdied Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 16, and bogied No. 16 before faltering on No. 18.
 
Jason Dufner placed seventh at 6-under.
 
There was an eight-way tie for eighth. Aaron Baddeley, K.J. Choi, Luke Donald, Matt Kuchar, Lee Slattery, David Toms, Bo Van Pelt and Tiger Woods all finished the tournament at 4-under.
 
Rain interrupted play in the morning and caused a two hour and 48 minute delay. Sunshine and warm temperatures emerged as the afternoon progressed.
