AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- With another signature moment at Firestone, Tiger Woods won the Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday with a spectacular shot over water to a foot that sent him to a 5-under 65 and a remarkable rally over Padraig Harrington.

Woods has won this World Golf Championship seven times in 10 starts, and he became the first player in PGA Tour history to win seven times on the same golf course.

He now goes to the PGA Championship with two straight victories after missing the cut at Turnberry last month.

Harrington helped make this three-shot victory possible. From behind the green on par-5 16th, after Woods had stuffed his 8-iron to within tap-in range for birdie, the Irishman hit over the green and into the water and made triple bogey.

It was the 70th career victory for Woods.
