The World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational has been played the week prior to the PGA Championship since 2007, allowing players to compete in an elite event the week before the year's final major. Only one player -- Tiger Woods in 2007 -- has won the Bridgestone and PGA in consecutive weeks. Three of the past four Bridgestone winners have finished in the top 10 at the PGA, though. Most PGA winners have preceded their major victory with a finish outside the top 10 at Bridgestone. Here's a look at how Bridgestone champs have fared at the following week's PGA, and how the eventual PGA Championship victor played the previous week:
