75 Golfers head to Akron, Ohio for a fantastic tournament; The World Golf Championship: Bridgestone Invitational. Beyond the Majors, the WGC is THEE Premier event religiously attracting one of the strongest fields assembled in World Professional Golf year in-and-out. The course is just a beautiful beast ready for some after dinner mints in the forms of; Ian Poulter, Hunter Mahan, and the rest of this prestigious field. Tiger Woods has made a career out of winning at Firestone CC but those days of Tiger dominating are long gone. The field is primed and ready to take on this bogey-maker, so lets look at who might have a chance of going low in the city of Rubbery Love!
Hunter Mahan checked-out last week while leading the RBC for the birth of his kid. Hunter tossed away the tourney lead, gave up on an opportunity for around $1 million Winners take, and spoke to me that he is way overpaid! Turn down a mill to watch a kid being born? I love kids-I have 6 of them-but even if I was giving birth to the child, you might have to shoot me to keep me off the T-Box! Anyway, Mahan falls from shear jealousyI mean, lack of focus from me. HA! For some reason I like Dufner in this tournament? I mean: It is Akron, Ohio after-all; the State Capital of Kentucky! He fits right in?! Harris English will play well this weekend. Bill Haas, Henrik Stenson, and Webb Simpson will be in the mix. Keegan Bradley will be chargingwhich brings us to the winner this week: Angel Cabrera!!
Short Favorite: Angel Cabrera (66 Odds to 1 to Win)
I know these are long odds but Angels game fits right into Firestones scheme. Hes long, creative, and has a great wedge. If the putter is working Angel wins!
Middle of the Road: Henrik Stenson (40 Odds to 1 to Win)
Should have won the British Open but became too relaxed. This week he might find that Happy Medium of determination, grit, and calmness.
Longshot: Harris English (150 Odds to 1 to Win)
Hes a pretty golfer. If the weather is calm and pleasant, English will be there in proper form. If it gets rough outside-hell fold like a tent!
