Woods finishes 78th at Bridgestone

Tiger Wood has had his worst Tournament finish as a professional, since his career began, at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio this weekend.

The world number one finished his final round on 77 to finish 78th out of a field of 81 golfers. He carded three birdies, six bogeys, and two double bogeys to finish 18 over par 298.

Despite this Woods still managed to hold on to his number one spot, as Phil Mickelson needed to finish fourth place or above to became the Worlds Number One Ranked Golfer.

Mickelson finished eight over 78 to tie for 46th place.

Mickelson, who has been number two for 258 weeks still believes he can topple Tiger though "It will eventually happen, I believe," he said."I've got to play better golf, though."

Tiger has still not earnt an automatic qualifying place on the Ryer Cup Team and only has one more counting event remaining in which to do so. He could still be part of the team though if he is chosen as one of Cory Pavin's captain’s picks.

Asked he wanted to play in the Ryder Cup Woods said Woods said: "Not playing like this. I would not help the team if I was playing like this.

"I think I can turn it around. We have a lot of time between now and then, which is good."
