Akron will welcome Tiger

AKRON — Eight-time Bridgestone Invitational champion Tiger Woods has officially qualified for the 2018 and final World Golf Championship event at Firestone Country Club by virtue of his sixth-place finish at the British Open on Sunday.

Woods climbed 21 spots to No. 50 in the World Golf Rankings to earn the final berth at Firestone.

He last won on the PGA Tour at the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational. Woods has not competed at Firestone Country Club’s South Course since 2014, when he withdrew during the final round.

The tournament, which will be held Aug. 1 to 5 in Akron, will be moving Memphis, Tennessee, in 2019.
