Rumors have been gathering that Tiger Woods may make his return to the PGA Tour at this year's WGC Bridgestone Invitational. The tournament runs from August 3rd through the 7th at Akron, Ohio's Firestone Country Club.
Woods -- who recently dropped out of the world's top twenty rankings for the first time since January 1997 -- has until July 29th, 5:00 p.m. ET to announce whether or not he will participate in the event. In past years the 35-year old has dominated the Bridgestone Invitational, winning seven of its 12 showings, including a 2000 victory in which Woods finished at with a course record, 21-under par.
Should he return, the 14-time major winner will be without a caddie after firing longtime partner Steve Williams following May's AT&T National. Brett Waldman -- the former caddie of Camilo Villegas -- has been rumored as a potential replacement. Waldman left Villegas in late 2010 to try "to realize a dream" and play on the PGA Tour.
