Tidbits from Firestone

* On the heels of his best finish at the Bridgestone Invitational in 2009 (T11), Chad Campbell’s bogey-free, 4-under-par 66 in Thursday’s opening round is his lowest score at Firestone Country Club.  In 20 events on the PGA TOUR in 2010 Campbell has produced two top 10s, a tie for eighth at the Sony Open in Hawaii and a tie for fifth at the Travelers Championship. 

* Sean O’Hair equaled his career-low round at Firestone Country Club with a 3-under-par 67 in Thursday’s opening round.  He previously fired a 67 in the second round in 2008, where he would go on to post his best finish, a tie for 12th.

* FedExCup points leader and 2010 World Golf Championships-CA Championship winner Ernie Els opened the Bridgestone Invitational with a 1-under-par 69.  In 10 previous appearances at the Bridgestone Invitational Els produced top 10s in 1999 (5 th) and 2001 (T8).  

* Matt Kuchar, who enters this week tied for the most top-10 finishes on the PGA TOUR in 2010 with seven, posted a 1-under-par 69 in Thursday’s opening round.  Kuchar enters this week No. 8 on the FedExCup points list and is making his first start at the Bridgestone Invitational since 2002 (T38).  -- Colin Murray
