Australian Adam Scott finished a brilliant four days of golf after he won the World Golf Championship Bridgestone Invitational 17 with a bogey free round of sixty five.
He won this prestigious championship a mere four shots ahead of his rivals Rickie Fowler and Luke Donald, who both finished at 13 under par.
Scott started off the Bridgestone Invitational well with an eight under par round of 62, one shot off the course record. After having started this tournament well, he failed to capitalize on his advantage and could not extend his lead as he hit a level par of seventy in the second round. This dismal performance in the second round allowed his rivals to close in on him. Rickie Fowler, Ryan Moore and Keegan Bradley joined Adam Scott at the head of the leader board of the tournament at eight under par.
Adam Scott improved his performance in the third round to regain the top position at the leader board. He played a round of sixty six with both Jason Day and Ryo Ishikawa a mere shot behind him at eleven under par.
On the last day of the Bridgestone Invitational, Adam Scott paired up with Ryo Ishikawa who was at the second place and was aiming to win the tournament and become the youngest golfer to have won the PGA tour in a hundred years. But Adam Scott did not let that happen as he finished with a brilliant five under par sixty five and finished at seventeen for the Bridgestone Invitational tournament.
This win was very important for the Australian as it helped him gain a solid reputation and also the fact that the prize money for this tournament in total was $8,500,000. Of this amount, the winner Adam Scott took home a handsome $1,400,000. The joint runners up, Luke Donald and Rickie Fowler both took home grand $665,000 prize money.
