Bradley captures WGC-Bridgestone Invitational as Furyk surrenders lead

Jim Furyk led the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational for 71 holes. After 72 holes, Keegan Bradley led and was the champion.

Furyk made a double-bogey 6 at the par-4 18th at Firestone C.C. to surrender the lead to Bradley, who made an 18-foot par putt to capture his third PGA Tour win.

Bradley won by a shot at 13 under par, shooting a final-round 6-under 64 to catch and pass Furyk. A year ago, Bradley shot a back-nine 41 in the final round to fall out of contention. He was nine shots better on Sunday.

Steve Stricker birdied the last hole to equal Bradley's 64 and finish joint second with Furyk at 12 under par.

Louis Oosthuizen finished alone in fourth at 11 under par. Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy each posted 8 under to finish tied for fifth.

Closing with 4-under 66, Tiger Woods shot his best round of the week on Sunday to finish nine shots back of Bradley in a tie for eighth place.
