Tournament Predictions: 2017 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

With the last major still a week away, the golf world turns to Akron for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. The Bridgestone is a limited-field tournament, with only half the amount of players (76) as a normal tour event, and there is no cut. It is conducted at Firestone C.C. South, which has been home to three PGA Championships. Firestone is not universally beloved; there are few unique holes on the venue, with this uniformity causing some to deem it a “boring” experience. However, though the course is long and tight, it’s noted for its fairness in rewarding good shots. It’s also a favorite of Tiger Woods, with good reason: he’s won eight times at Firestone. Dustin Johnson is the defending champion.
