Bridgestone Invitational History
The Bridgestone Invitational began play in 1976 and became part of the World Series of Golf in 1999, giving it time to build a serious reputation as one of the top tournaments in the pro golf game. Every Bridgestone Invitational event but one has been held at Firestone Country Club; the 2002 tournament was held at Sammamish, Washington's Sahalee Country Club. Over the years, some of the top superstars in the sport have been able to finish atop the leaderboard, helping to create a standard of excellence that holds strong nearly four decades after its inception.
Bridgestone Invitational Trivia
Once this event was officially started in 1976, an American golfer won each of the first seven tournaments, though two different golfers from the same country became back-to-back winners in 1983 and 1984. Can you name the country they were from?
The answer is Zimbabwe. The first non-American to win the event was Nick Price, though he was soon followed in 1984 by Dennis Watson, who was also born in Zimbabwe. Other countries to have more than one winner at this event include Australia (four), South Africa (two) and Spain (two).
