Rory McIlroy Wins WGC Bridgestone, But Sergio Garcia Scores A Diamond

  • Rick Chandler

The big question of course is this: Does the Bridgestone have a trophy suitable for drinking booze?

Rory McIlroy followed up his British Open win with a late surge to outlast Sergio Garcia at Rickey Fowler by two strokes at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in Akron. McIlroy took over the world No. 1 ranking with the win.

But Garcia did this, which makes him the winner to me. His shot actually hit a woman’s hand and knocked the diamond off of her engagement ring, which landed in the rough. Great shot kid! That’s one in a million!
