8. WGC-Bridgestone Invitational – Hideki Matsuyama
The Bridgestone Invitational is one of the most interesting tournaments every year because of the drummed up faux-controversy that surrounds the event. Routinely scheduled between the final two major championships of the season, Akron’s major brings in the world’s best to a golf course the pros universally like, but fans hate watching.
The tournament lands on this year’s list because of Hideki Matsuyama’s unconscious final-round 61 that saw him win by five shots over Zach Johnson.
