WGC-Bridgestone Invitational tee times, pairings: When Tiger Woods starts Round 2

TigerWoodsCropped

I've always been a fan of this golf course and remember playing here before it was even a World Golf Championship. There are also plenty of really good players who are in the middle tier range relative to the field like Zach Johnson, Adam Scott, and last years victor Hideki Matsuyama.

"I went from just hoping to be able to play the TOUR to now that I feel that I can play the TOUR. But just the way I made a couple of mistakes there at 11 and 12 ended up costing me the tournament". His 66 was his best first-round score on the PGA Tour since he opened with a 64 at the 2015 Wyndham Championship.

Woods, who will play alongside Jason Day on Thursday and Friday, said he feels good about his game after consecutive top-six finishes (including a T4 at the Quicken Loans National) and "can certainly win again". "I want to practice a lot, I want to figure it out, I want to get better, I want to be ready".

Both men held the lead at one point on the back nine at Carnoustie and, while McIlroy tied for second behind Francesco Molinari and Woods came home sixth, they know they let a Major-winning chance slip away.

"It has always been one of my favorite golf courses on the entire tour", Woods said.

Meanwhile Woods, who has won this event eight times, including the first three times of this event's history. He also spoke to the media earlier this week stating that he's been working so hard to get back into shape so he could play and compete, at the Bridgestone Invitational.

They set them gently on risers lined up inside the hangar as Pence stood watching with his hand over his heart. Experts say positively identifying the decades-old remains could take anywhere from days to decades.

My middle-tier pick this week is Tony Finau, and it honestly shocks me to say "middle-tier" and "Tony Finau" in the same sentence. "It certainly wasn't exactly easy to get back into this event, I've had to play well this year". Tony has the third best driving average on Tour with 316.9 yards, and is twenty-eighth in strokes gained off-the-tee. He's been in great form recently, and I think we'll be seeing him in a top 10 position this week.

Matsuyama, once in the mix to reach No. 1 in the world, now is at No. 16.

Watch the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational throughout the week on Sky Sports.

Woods went bogey-free for the first 17 holes but ran into a bit of trouble on the 9th hole (his final hole) when he sent his drive careening into a bunker on the right side of the fairway.

Thai star Kiradech Aphibarnrat speaks plainly these days when it comes to his goals in golf and it was no different ahead of this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.
