Bradley edges Furyk for WGC victory

Aug. 5, 2012 at 7:07 PM

AKRON, Ohio, Aug. 5 (UPI) -- Keegan Bradley took advantage of a late double-bogey by Jim Furyk to come from behind and post a one-shot victory at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Bradley parred the final two holes to complete a bogey-free round of 6-under 64, ending at 13-under-par 267.

That proved to be sufficient when Furyk -- who had led the entire round -- stumbled to a double-bogey on the 18th hole, finishing at minus-12.

He missed a 5-footer for bogey that would have forced a playoff, but settled instead for a share of second place with a 1-under 69.

Steve Stricker also fired a 64 to claim a piece of the runner-up spot on the South Course at Firestone Country Club.

Claiming sole possession of fourth place was Louis Oosthuizen (1-under 69) at 11-under 269.

Sharing fifth at minus-8 were Justin Rose (67) and Rory McIlroy (68).
