The WGC Bridgestone Invitational has only been around since 2006 but tournament golf has been taking place at Firestone Country Club since 1964. It started with the Rubber City Open and has had a few different names over the years. The CBS Golf Classic, World Series of Golf, The American Golf Classic and The NEC Invitational are a few of the names that have graced the historic course at Firestone. With a list of champions that includes names like Nicklaus, Palmer, Player, Floyd, Watson, Norman and Woods Firestone has a legacy that few courses can match.
