Bridgestone Invitational 2012: Keegan Bradley wins WGC at Firestone

By on Aug 6, 2012 in Golf, Sports Comments

Keegan Bradley won the 2012 World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday, August 5, 2012 at Firestone in Akron, Ohio, according to a report at PGA.com.

Bradley scored a dramatic come from behind victory to beat Jim Furyk. He fired a bogey-free 6-under 64 during Sunday’s final round. The win earned him a spot for the US Ryder Cup Team.

In a statement after the game, Bradley revealed that he was telling himself that “this is the exact moment that I live for, that you play golf for, that you grow up your whole life, and I’m living it. It’s just an amazing feeling to be in that moment and just loving every second of it.”

Bradley added that he “didn’t think for a second I was going to miss it. It was unbelievable. I got behind it, and I barely even had to read it. I knew the exact way it was going to break. I just needed to hit it hard enough. I knew that. And it was dead center.”

Steve Stricker shared second place with Furyk after matching Bradley’s 64 in the final round.

Furyk, who led after 71 holes, said that he is “a little bit in shock with the way I finished up. I turned a 5 into a 6 and lost the golf tournament on the last hole. There’s no way I should have made double bogey.”

Reports say that in this year’s PGA Tour, only 10 of 33 third-round leaders went on to win the tournament.
