Akron, OH (Sports Network) - Keegan Bradley fired a bogey-free, 6-under 64 on Sunday to come from behind and win the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
Bradley parred the final two holes to overcome Jim Furyk, who faltered to a double-bogey at the last. Bradley finished at 13-under-par 267.
"I still can't believe it. I'm just so thrilled," Bradley said in a TV interview.
Furyk, who led the entire round, hit a poor chip at the last, then missed a 5- footer for bogey that would have forced a playoff. He closed with a 1-under 69 to share second at minus-12.
Steve Stricker matched Bradley's 64 to finish alongside Furyk.
Louis Oosthuizen posted a 1-under 69 to end alone in third at 11-under 269 on the South Course at Firestone Country Club.
