AKRON, OHIO (AP) - Tiger Woods has entered the Bridgestone Invitational next week at Firestone, where he is the defending champion and a seven-time winner of the World Golf Championship.

Woods won last year by rallying to beat Padraig Harrington, becoming the first player to win a PGA Tour event seven times on the same course.

He has won every year at Firestone since 2005, except for when he missed the second half of the 2008 season following knee surgery.

Anthony Kim also has entered the tournament that begins Aug. 5. It will be Kim’s first tournament since having thumb surgery in May.

The Bridgestone Invitational is a a week before the final major championship of the year, the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.
