Woods at his best at Firestone, Torrey, Bay Hill
AKRON, OHIO (AP) - Tiger Woods has been very good at a lot of courses.
At three, in particular, he’s been sensational.
Woods has won eight times at Arnold Palmer’s tournament at Bay Hill, eight times at the Bridgestone at Firestone and also eight times at Torrey Pines, where he’s won the Farmers Insurance seven times in addition to the 2008 U.S. Open.
So, Tiger, if you could play only one course, which would it be?
“Can I play six holes on each?” he cracked.
Even Woods marvels at how he’s dominated on those oh-so-different venues.
“It’s interesting because they’re so different,” Woods said. “Torrey being seaside, and Bay Hill has got a lot of twists and turns. And this one is just as straightforward and plain Jane as can be. But for some reason, on all three golf courses I feel comfortable with my sight lines, even though they’re three distinctly different golf courses.”
QUOTE OF THE DAY: Defending Bridgestone winner Keegan Bradley, who tied for second, seven shots back of Woods: “You know, I hate to sit here and go on and on about how good he is, but he is. It’s difficult because I really want to get up there and contend with him. But he’s just … this week he’s playing really well.”
McIlroy, who won at Kiawah last year, closed with a 72 after rounds of 70, 71 and 69 to finish at 2-over 282.
“I thought I struck the ball much better today than I did the previous three days, which was great _ a good sign,” he said. “Obviously I didn’t score well the first day, then didn’t hit it particularly well the middle two rounds. Today I played nicely, a couple of bad holes on the back nine. Yeah, it was OK. I’m definitely going in the right direction.”
Even he concedes that he isn’t as confident in his game as he was a year ago, when he finished tied for fifth behind Keegan Bradley.
