Hideki Matsuyama wins Bridgestone with big finish
Monday Aug 07, 2017 12:00am

(AKRON, OH) – Hideki Matsuyama has won the Bridgestone Invitational with the lowest final round in four decades at Firestone Country Club. Matsuyama birdied his last three holes for a 9 under 61 to erase a two-shot deficit and claim his second World Golf Championships title. Matsuyama also won the HSBC Champions last fall in Shanghai. He tied the course record held by Jose Maria Olazabal, Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia. Matsuyama stays at No. 3 in the world, though the 25 year old from Japan takes plenty of momentum -- and pressure -- into the PGA Championship next week. He took the lead with his 15 foot birdie putt on the sixth hole, and no one could keep up with him.
