After being moved to accommodate the Olympics last year, the WGC Bridgestone Invitational returns to its traditional slot this time around – one week ahead of the year’s final major – the USPGA Championship.
Originally known as the World Series of Golf, the event was first played in 1976 and it became a World Golf Championship event in 1999. It’s a lucrative limited field tournament featuring the world’s best players with no cut.
This is always one of the best tournaments of the year, and is always staged at the tough Akron course in Ohio. It’s the longest par-70 on the regular tour (ie a non-major) at 7,400 yards and the key areas to consider are greens in regulation and par-4 scoring, while bearing in mind that players who can rip it off the tee are going to have a definite advantage.
Rory McIlroy won last year but is obviously missing this time around. He finished two clear of Sergio Garcia, having started the final day three behind. But Rory raced home in just 66 blows compared to Sergio’s 71. That 71 was ten more than his score on Friday, when he equalled the course record with an unbelievable display of golf.
There’s every chance Sergio will be right in the mix again this week but we have been to that well often enough this season and the fact is that his putting lets him down at the wrong time. Overall it’s not a bad stroke but under pressure it clearly falters.
Of course all eyes will be on Jordan Spieth, but he can’t win every week, and while he gets better all the time, he has not threatened here previously. Clearly, with his putting stroke, he could always be in contention, and his par-4 performance means he has the right profile here, but at 6/1 his odds are too short.
