Elite field at Firestone


The ledger says Tiger Woods has dominated at Firestone Country Club. Woods, steeling for the PGA Championship next week at Oak Hill, headlines a bumper crop of world-class players at the Bridgestone Invitational today ( 11 a.m., Golf). Woods has won seven times on the rolling hills at Firestone in Akron, Ohio. But there are plenty of others to keep an eye on in the field that includes 49 of the top 50 players in the world ranking. Also on hand are British Open winner Phil Mickelson, Masters champion Adam Scott, U.S. Open winner Justin Rose, defending champion Keegan Bradley, and a who’s who of other contenders including Rory McIlroy. – AP
