Phil Mickelson is making his return to the PGA Tour one week prior to the PGA Championship. This weeks WGC-Bridgestone Invitational promises to be a great warm up for the last major of the year. Coming off his win at the Buick Championship Tiger Woods looks to build his momentum and solidify his comeback from last years knee injury. This weeks field is as strong as it gets for a non-major.
Coming off his second place finish, and the second time he missed a playoff in a major by one stroke, Lee Westwood leads the charge to hunt down Tiger Woods. Stewart Cink also returns following his win at the British Open hoping to end the year strong and claim his spot among the elite golfers in the world.
With a field as impressive as this weeks it becomes rather pointless to try and pick a winner. The world’s best are are all looking to go into the PGA Championship with a win. In tournaments like this it is best to sit back and enjoy the drama.
