Australian Placings at 2008 WGC Bridgestone

2008 World Golf Championships Day 1:

I managed to stay up for a while last night to watch the amazing, nail biting 3rd installment of the 2008 World Golf Championships – Bridgestone Invitational, but most of the Australians teed off later in the day, so I only caught a glimpse. The weather looked good and Nick O'hearn was still left handed. When I went to bed Japan's Hoshino Hidemasa was -2 after 2 holes, I take a look at the results this morning and the guy finished 5+. Oops.

Also, why are the 2008 'Bridgestone' Golf Championships played at the 'Firestone' golf course?

Most of the Aussie golfers are well placed at Firestone with over half the field at even or better. Scott Strange is currently 2 shots behind over night leader Retief Goosen who is at -4
