AKRON, OHIO (AP) - Adam Scott won his first World Golf Championship on Sunday with a caddie who has been part of quite a few more.

Scott chipped in and holed a 30-foot putt for birdies in a span of three holes to pull away from 19-year-old Ryo Ishikawa and win the Bridgestone Invitational.

Scott closed with a 5-under 65 and brought smiles to his caddie, Steve Williams, whom Tiger Woods fired last month after 12 years. Williams had been with Woods for 16 world titles, including seven at Firestone.

Scott won by four shots over Rickie Fowler and Luke Donald. Ishikawa made bogey on the last hole to tie for fourth, his highest finish in America.

Woods completed his first tournament in four months and tied for 37th, 18 shots behind.
