2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational Results: Keegan Bradley Edges Jim Furyk On 18th Hole To Win Tournament

On a day where intermittent storms forced players off the course, it was Keegan Bradley who outlasted 54-hole leader Jim Furyk to take the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in exciting fashion.

Bradley carded a 6-under score of 64 on Sunday while playing in a final group that included Furyk and South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen, and nailed a tricky putt on the 18th and final hole to apply a great deal of pressure on his playing partner.

After each hitting a pair of impressive drives on No. 18, Furyk and Bradley, who were 14 and 13-under respectively through 17 holes, each missed the green right and faced uncertain lies. Needing to make a seven-foot putt to tie Bradley at 13-under after previously having his chip shot get caught up in the rough, Furyk hit an extremely poor putt well past the hole to effectively give away the tournament.

The reigning PGA Championship winner, Bradley will now enter next week's event in South Carolina with as much momentum as possible, as it's clear he's playing some of the most inspired golf of his brief career.
