  • Tiger Woods barely keeps pace at Firestone

Woods, an eight-times champion at Firestone, dismissed speculation that his surgically-repaired back had bothered him.

On the 471-yard par-4 fourth, Woods had a bogey after hitting the green in 3 and two putting, moving Woods to 1 under for the round.

Putnam earned $$612,000, a two-year tour exemption and a spot next week in the PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis.

"Yeah, I'm fine. Just played like crap", said Woods. It was either going to be a 62 or a 72. "Sometimes it works out; sometimes it doesn't". His approach went into the front bunker, and he holed out for birdie. But Woods again appeared out of sorts, missing numerous fairways - no matter the club - to the left and struggling to find any consistency. He made just a single bogey - at the sixth hole - and cruised to a closing 69 for a four-stroke victory.

Northeast Ohio has been the place for thousands to watch world class golf for years, however, Sunday was the last time Firestone Country Club's famed South Course will host the prestigious Bridgestone Invitational.

Their relationship goes back more than a decade, back to junior golf days and at rival colleges, where each could hold their own share of bragging rights.

"I wanted that yellow hat and I asked [equipment manufacturer Titleist] if we could get some, but everything in stock was sent to Jarrod [in Australia], which is understandable". I've always enjoyed playing here.

"The hard part about this course is you can get off track pretty quick if you're not playing well", Thomas told CBS television. Maybe I might be here when the Senior Tour comes around.
