Jason Day, Tiger Woods locked in WGC duel

Jason Day, Tiger Woods locked in WGC duel

Woods had to fight his way into the world top 50 to book his place at Firestone.

Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri will tee off at the same time as Tiger Woods but from a different end of the Firestone South course at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, on Thursday. Next year, Bridgestone moves to Memphis, Tenn.

Tiger loves this golf course and has been playing great as of late, but the only concern I have with picking Tiger is that he's going to have to hit his driver well.

"It's always been one of my favorite golf courses on the entire Tour and it's unfortunate that it is leaving", Woods said prior to a practice round on Wednesday. Firestone will host the world's best players for the last time at the Bridgestone Invitational, and it wouldn't be the same without Woods. Last year, Hideki Matsuyama captured his fifth PGA Tour win here last year, climbing to third in the world. "It certainly wasn't easy to get into this event, I've had to play well this year".

"It's managing my practice sessions, " said Woods, who is in the midst of a stretch where he will play five tournaments in six weeks.

Tiger Woods plays alongside Jason Day this afternoon, and they're at the first tee at 20-past-3.

Vice-President Mike Pence and USA military leaders received the remains in Hawaii during a sombre ceremony on Wednesday. Byrd cautioned that the 55 boxes did not necessarily equate to the remains of 55 individuals.

"Also, this is away from the stadium golf that we seem to play a lot now on Tour, and I'm just excited to be here and be able to play. I've had an opportunity to win a couple of times this year; my game's gotten better and good enough where I feel like I can win again out here on Tour". But this is the a year ago the event is being played at Firestone.

"I play 36 holes all the time at home", he said. However, with 50-1 odds, he somehow has ended up in the middle despite finishing in the top-10 in all three majors this year and 4 other events. "I am still outside the top eight and while I am going to be there either case, I'd like to be there as a player as well".

"And now it feels like I can play with them and, you know, I don't feel intimidated in any way".

The 38-year-old told Sky Sports that he first felt the pain earlier in the week, with Rose sitting out the World Golf Championship event to avoid further injury ahead of a hectic forthcoming schedule.

"As I said, it was going to sting for a while, and it certainly does because I had a great chance at it", he said. 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.
