World number one Dustin Johnson of the United States will be competing on the back of his win at last week's Canadian Open and vying to repeat his triumph from 2016.

The final WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club is being held this week, and the tournament has an air of electricity with Tiger Woods' last-minute qualification via his T6 finish at the Open Championship a few weeks ago.

Woods' impressive birdie, his third of the round through eight holes, put him fourth on the leaderboard and just four strokes off the leader, Kyle Stanley. He started his PGA Tour season in January at No. 647. "This entire year has been one that I've been evolving and changing a few things". He's won here as many times as I've won everywhere in my career.

On Wednesday, Woods also reflected on being in contention at the British Open at Carnoustie last month, where he finished in a tie for sixth after holding the lead briefly during the final round.

"My training schedule, how to build myself, my recovery breaks even had to factor in how much I can practice, just to make sure I'm physically fit enough to get through this section". Most of these memories contained Tiger Woods (and we'll talk about why in just a moment), but I will also never forget Rory McIlroy's immaculate round of 15 under to steal the win from Sergio Garcia in 2014. "Hopefully, this will be a week that I can catch the magic again and play well". "It s a very simple, straightforward golf course, which we don t see very often anymore".

Putin invites Trump to Moscow for second meeting after Washington postponed plans
Scaramucci also told Tapper that the decision to ban Collins from the press event came from President Trump, himself. It is not immediately clear if Mr Putin was referring to a formal invitation or a verbal one in spirit.

Sanctions are crippling North Korea's economy
North Korea has called the sanctions "vicious" but rejects suggestions that the pressure led them to pursue diplomatic talks. President Donald Trump has said that sanctions won't be lifted until Kim moves to give up his nuclear and missile arsenal.

GST Council Meet: Sanitary napkins exempted from tax
The issue has also been a focus of political debate in Britain where sanitary products are still taxed as a "luxury" product. Previously there were around 226 goods in the 28 per cent category when GST was implemented on July 1, 2017.

A ninth victory at Firestone would also put Woods closer to his goal of playing in the Ryder Cup - as well as serving as an assistant to USA captain Jim Furyk.

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. But before I become too emotional, let's jump into the course.

"When you go out on the course and you're playing with some of the best players in the world, you confront yourself with them", he said. "Tiger has proved that here, with Bay Hill, with Torrey Pines, with well, actually, anywhere".

That was his last good chance to win a tournament.

Three additional spots will be named by captain Jim Furyk following the Dell tournament, with the final spot scheduled to be announced after the BMW Championship, slated to be completed on September 9. "So he's going to be very, very comfortable here".
