Furyk wins Bridgestone. Oh wait, no he doesn’t, again

Jack London once said, you can’t wait for inspiration; you have to go after it with a club. And that’s exactly what Keegan Bradley did at the Bridgestone Invitiational.

Even though Jim Furyk fired a first-round 63, his best ever at Firestone, it was not enough to keep the defending PGA Champion from nipping at his heels.

Furyk double-bogeyed the final hole on Sunday to give it to Bradley. Furyk managed to hit 11 greens in regulation before letting his approach shot slip long and right to a near-impossible recovery spot.

Bradley will defend his title in the fourth and final major of 2012 next week at Kiawah Island.

Firestone is a lush patch of green amid concrete and smoldering rubber factories in Akron, Ohio.

The other thing smoldering today was Jim Furyk. He was the wire-to-71st hole leader. After finishing his round, Furyk found his young kids waiting for him when he finished. His kids were crying.

But Bradley’s were tears of joy. His bogeyless 66 allowed him to pick up the pieces when Furyk dropped them.
