The WGC Bridgestone Invitational is the third of four WGC events and gets underway August 3-6, 2017. The tournament attracts one of the strongest fields of the year and is annually played the week before the PGA Championship.
The tournament changed sponsorship in 2006, with Bridgestone taking over from NEC as title sponsor. As a part of the original five-year sponsorship agreement, the event continues to be held at its traditional site of the South Course at Firestone in Akron, Ohio. In August 2013, the sponsorship was extended through 2018.
Firestone Country Club - South course is the host venue. The layout measures 7,400 yards and plays to a par 70. The South course opened in 1929, later re-made by Robert Trent Jones for the 1960 PGA Championship captured by Jay Hebert. It’s been a part of the World Golf Championship since 1999.
Tiger Woods has won this event a record eight times and is the only player to win it more than once. Other champions include Vijay Singh, Adam Scott, Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson.
