Tiger Woods blew by the rest of the field to win the Bridgestone Invitational for the third straight year. The world's top-ranked player had five birdies and no bogeys in his round of 5-under-65. He finished the event 8-under par, 8 shots in front of third-round leader Rory Sabbatini and Justin Rose.
Sabbatini, who has verbally jousted with Woods in the past, fell apart in the final round with a 4-over 74.
The victory gives Woods six wins on the Firestone course and puts him in some great company. He joins Jack Nicklaus and Alex Ross as the only players to have won on the same course six times. Nicklaus achieved the feat at Augusta National while Alex Ross won six times at Pinehurst Number-2.
