Commissioner Tim Finchem confirmed to the Beacon Journal that the PGA Tour is working on an extension with Bridgestone Corp. to extend its sponsorship of the Bridgestone Invitational and keep the event in Akron.

The current four-year agreement runs through 2014. It was announced during the final round of the event in 2009, one year before its expiration.

“We’re talking, but we don’t have anything set just yet,” Finchem said. “Nowadays these things take a while. You get going and you have meetings and worry about different things.

“We are eager to get it done. Whether we have something to say about it this week, I’m not sure.”
