Tiger Woods buried a 26-foot putt for par on the final hole Friday afternoon at Firestone, providing a fitting end to one of the best rounds of his illustrious career. He seized a seven-stroke tournament lead with a second-round 61, matching his top PGA Tour score and tying a course record.
The nine-under effort puts him at 13 under through 36 holes at the Bridgestone Invitational, where Woods is a seven-time champion. The impressive performance featured seven birdies, one eagle and no bogeys.
Woods has bogeyed just two holes through two rounds of the tournament, which sets the stage for the PGA Championship next week. He needed two birdies on the final three holes to finish at 59, but picked up pars at each stop.
