Tiger Woods announced he will play in the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club next week leading up to the PGA Championship at Oak Hill the following week.
The Bridgestone has traditionally been the lone tournament Woods plays in the week preceeding a major. He is a seven-time winner of the tournament and has finished in the top 10 in 12 of his 13 appearances at the Firestone Country Club.
"This is one of my favorite courses," Tiger said on TigerWoods.com. "There is nothing tricky about it; everything is right in front of you. And the fans do a great job of supporting the event."
The Bridgestone is the third of four World Golf Championship events this season.
