Golf Starz take on the WGC Bridgestone Invitational…
You would be kidding yourself if you thought Golf Starz wasn’t going to give you our hot takes on who we think is going to win the Bridgestone Invitational this weekend. A PGA event in our home state. We will be watching every minute and we plan on heading to Akron to catch a day or two in person. So, if you are going to be there let us know. Love to connect with our followers and we may even have some Golf Starz swag to give away.
First, Firestone Country Club is a course that is on my bucket list to play. It would be amazing to line up my tee shot on the 667 yard par 5, 16th hole…have you ever seen a man hit his driver off the tee, then follow it up with two driver off the decks just to get to the green? If you want to witness that, just hope you are part of my foursome if I am lucky enough to play there one day.
Growing up, I would hear stories of Jack playing at Firestone and we got to witness Tiger’s “shot in the dark.” Firestone Country Club has seen a number of memorable moments and I have a feeling this weekend will lend itself to a couple more. The field looks strong including a number of the young guns that are gearing up for a good week.
