10:32 am on 5 August 2013

Tiger Woods has completed an impressive preparation for this week's US PGA Championship by extending his domination of World Golf Championship events with a seven-stroke victory in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Woods won the tournament for an eighth time, finishing at 15-under par, seven strokes clear of defending champion Keegan Bradley and Swede Henrik Stenson.

It was world number one Woods' 18th title from 42 starts in World Gold Championships events, which are the tier below the majors.

It was the fifth victory of the year for Woods, the 10th season of his career with five or more victories, an all-time record.

He took his tally to 79 career titles on the US PGA tour, just three behind Sam Snead's all-time record of 82.

The 37-year-old now heads to the US PGA Championship in New York, knowing it is the 20th time he has won in his last start before a major and he has gone on to win that major four times.
