Tiger Woods preparing for hectic stretch of golf

Woods made it back-to-back victories in 2000

Woods had to fight his way into the world top 50 to book his place at Firestone.

LOS ANGELES, Aug 2 ― Tiger Woods returns to the scene of his most recent victory when he tackles the WGC Bridgestone in Akron, Ohio, just making the elite field a testament to the superstar's resilience.

"I felt I brought some of the stuff from the range onto the golf course and just have to work on it as the week goes on".

"It has always been one of my favorite golf courses on the entire tour", Woods said.

His last victory anywhere was in capturing the 2013 Bridgestone and if he should claim success this week Woods would become the first male golfer anywhere to win the same event nine times.

North Korea is working on new missiles
But there is a broad consensus among US intelligence agencies that Kangson is one of at least two secret enrichment plants. The factory reportedly produced two ICBMs, including the Hwasong-15 - a missile capable of reaching the US East Coast.

He insisted he'd have no physical problem playing two Ryder Cup matches a day in Paris and reiterated his desire to make the side with two qualifying events remaining. "This has been one of the very few tournaments that is kind of a small-town atmosphere".

The round put Woods four back of the suddenly revitalized Ian Poulter, who fired an 8-under 62, and one back of the 65s that Jason Day and Rory McIlroy carded. Add up the consistency over the last four weeks and the way Woods played on Thursday and you've got some strong evidence that Woods is going to win sometime soon. "But I also had to play well to do it and I was ranked pretty far in the world there".

Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, said that "we are closer than we have been" to working out the details and that he expected it to occur "this year, " with the location and date still to be determined. With that, the 42-year-old Woods knows this weekend could very well mark his final time playing - at least in a meaningful capacity - Firestone, which he's frequented since his days as an amateur.

Woods, who qualified for the World Golf Championship event by moving into the top 50 in the world two weeks ago, made his only bogey on the ninth hole, his last. "It certainly wasn't exactly easy to get back into this event, I've had to play well this year. I've had an opportunity to win a couple of times this year; my game's gotten better and good enough where I feel like I can win again out here on Tour". "I certainly can win again".

"And now it feels like I can play with them and, you know, I don't feel intimidated in any way". There are also plenty of really good players who are in the middle tier range relative to the field like Zach Johnson, Adam Scott, and last years victor Hideki Matsuyama.
