WGC-Bridgestone Invitational 2013 results: Tiger Woods blows away field, Keegan Bradley settles for 2nd

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The tournament was over on Friday night, but several of the world's best battled for second over the final 36 holes at Firestone.

After Tiger Woods' course-record matching round of 61 on Friday, the rest of the field was playing for second place on the weekend at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Tiger went to sleep with a 36-hole lead of seven shots, and he cruised through the final two rounds to keep that margin.

The runaway win is made all the more impressive by the fact that 48 of the top 50 players in the world were in attendance at Firestone. The no-cut limited field WGC events always have some of the most loaded tee sheets, with world-class talent in almost every pairing. But Woods removed all doubt by Friday night, while big names like Keegan Bradley, Luke Donald, Jason Dufner and Henrik Stenson battled for second place and worked on their game for Oak Hill next week.

In the end, it was Bradley and Stenson who came in the distant second at eight-under. Bradley was the defending champ at this event, but he's had a spotty season so the solid showing will be encouraging heading into the PGA Championship. The former PGA winner will also be paired with Woods in the first two rounds next week. Stenson continued his strong 2013 season, which featured a good showing at The Players and a runner-up last month at the British Open. He should absolutely be a factor on the leaderboard next week at the season's final major.

While Tiger made Firestone look like a chip-and-putt at times, the South Course certainly wasn't enjoyable for all the players in the 73-man field. Daniel Popovic, an Aussie, finished an amazing 34-over -- 49 (!) shots back of the winner. Here are the full results from top to bottom:
