Paddy and Tiger Face Off at Firestone

It looks like a showdown at Firestone as Padraig Harrington has a three stroke lead over Tiger Woods going into the final round. Harrington has been searching for his golf game all season and it appears he has found his stroke, at least for the weekend. Harrington realizes that the final pairing with Woods has melted plenty of players. Harrington has been there before with Woods and knows what to expect. A win by Paddy would be vindication for a season of swing changes. It would give Harrington a huge boost before next week’s PGA Championship. If Tiger could win it would be his fifth of the year and his seventh victory at Firestone. Tiger’s putter was magic on Saturday as he needed only twenty three putts. He has used the same model putter forever; Scotty Cameron is the only one that can pry Woods away from his Nike clubs. Who knew the Bridgestone Invitational would be such a great a warm up for the PGA?
