As I was rolling out of the airport last night I saw Martin Kaymer in the airport. Always unique to see golfers out and about in the grocery store and the YMCA. Looking forward to getting out of NY Thursday and back to Akron for Friday morning.

I'm originally from Akron! Born and raised there until I joined the Air Force. My Brother-In-Law is a member at Firestone and I've been fortunate to have played there several times. It's an amazing place!
I've been to the PGA Tournament there when it was called the "World Series of Golf" and the "Bridgestone Invitational". My Father-In-Law was a chairman on the "World Series of Golf" in the 80's and 90's, and I was fortunate enough to attend the 'Champions Dinner' once.
Hole #16 is the 667 yard Par 5, with a water hazard guarding the green. One of my best memories is hitting the green in 3, but spun it off the green back into the pond. Yes, bad result - but what a great and fun shot!
Anyhow - all the best to you! Enjoy your time at Firestone!

The Tour heads into Akron, OH to Firestone CC this week featuring the best golfers out on tour. Notable names this week will be Spieth, Day, Johnson (Zack and Dustin), and a host of others.

Going to be a fun event, one that I enjoy as it takes place literally in my back yard. I will be a member at Firestone next year so you know I'll be taking notes why I am there this weekend.

I'll try to update this thread frequently as the events start happening!!!

Just got back from a morning at Firestone. As expected I didn't get to watch to much golf as my daughter got bored waiting for the groups to come through. Course is in great shape and it was great to see Andrew Dodt, not out there playing a round by himself. Supposedly they put one of the PGA Pro's from Firestone CC out there with him. Had to be a rush for that gentleman. Its amazing how easy it looks like these guys are swinging.

As for the extracurricular activities they are abundant. My daughter spent most of the day in the Bridgestone Selfie and FanFest area putting and hitting golf balls. Ended up sinking a 30ft bending putt for a hole in one. Then it was off to get some autographs, which she also enjoyed.

I will be back tomorrow and try to grab some pictures and update this thread a bit more as I will be out there by myself.
