What Tiger Woods said after opening 66 at WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

There is no confirmation yet whether Rose - the 2013 U.S. Open victor - will be fit to play in the US PGA Championship next weekend.

Shubhankar Sharma will make his debut in the final WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club this week. "You really know where your game stands when you re playing this golf course".

"There isn't just one", Woods said.

"Also, this is away from the stadium golf that we seem to play a lot now on Tour, and I'm just excited to be here and be able to play".

The PGA Tour confirmed Tuesday that Woods committed to play in the first two events of the FedExCup playoffs at the end of August, the first time he will do so since 2013, and will very likely qualify for the third. I feel like my body is good. By the time The Open Championship arrived last month, he ranked 71st, with a T-6 place finish being barely just enough to qualify him for his first appearance at Firestone since he was forced to withdraw from the Bridgestone in 2014. I saw some of the people I've seen for over 15 years out here today, wish me good luck today and they were walking a few holes. "Hopefully, it will carry through to the Tour Championship".

Firestone South, a long, tree-lined course, has not in the past set up well for the 35-year-old Italian. The global field will be led by new World No. 1 Ariya Jutanugarn, No. 2 Inbee Park and No. 3 (KPMG Women's PGA champion) Sung Hyun Park, along with defending champion and No. 7 in the world I.K. Kim. And Dustin Johnson and Open victor Francesco Molinari will play as a pairing as well.

He is playing alongside fellow American and Fed Ex Cup champion Justin Thomas for the first two rounds. "Tiger has proved that with here, with Bay Hill, with Torrey Pines, with. well, actually, anywhere".

Wood's path back to Firestone wasn't easy, and on multiple occasions, it appeared unlikely.

He raised expectations, certainly among his fans, with his strong showing at Carnoustie, where Woods had the lead for a couple of holes on Sunday, only to fall back with a double bogey.

"I play 36 holes all the time at home", he said. He could probably take two, three weeks off and he s going to get it around here fine, because he knows how to. He's won here as many times as I've won everywhere in my career. "I'm definitely going to miss that". "So he's going to be very, very comfortable here".
