AKRON, OHIO — Bubba Watson, playing his first tournament round of golf at Firestone Country Club, shot a 6-under 64 for a two-stroke lead after Thursday’s opening round of the Bridgestone Invitational.

On the downside, Tiger Woods, who’s won seven times at Firestone, struggled all day and shot a 74, his worst round ever on the course and in the tournament. Woods finished round one in 74th place, in the 81-player field.

Watson needed only 22 putts to shoot his lowest first-round score of the year. He was able to practice on the course on Sunday and it allowed him to put up seven birdies and a bogey.

This was the first time that Watson, who won the Travelers Championship in June, which was his first PGA Tour win, has led a tournament after the first round.

Phil Mickelson, Kenny Perry, Adam Scott and Graeme McDowell were all at 66, as Chad Campbell, Sean O’Hair, Jeff Overton, Bo Van Pelt and Retief Goosen finished at 67.

Mickelson was paired with Rory McIlroy and they played well together. McIlroy shot a 68 and Mickelson, who played the first 10 holes at 1 over, birdied five of the last eight.
