Tiger Woods won his eighth World Golf Championship-Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday by seven shots over Keegan Bradley and Henrik Stenson. The victory came with one notable club in the bag — Nike's VR_S Covert Tour driver.
The 79-time PGA TOUR winner swapped out his VR Tour driver and replaced it with VR_S Covert Tour two weeks ago at the Open Championship but didn't feel the need to use it often on Muirfield's tight layout.
Woods finished Bridgestone sixth in driving distance (315.1 yards) and T11 in driving accuracy (62.50 percent).
