(Newser) – At Sunday's Bridgestone Invitational Tiger Woods did what Tiger Woods does best: win.  He left the field, including rival Rory Sabbatini, in the dust for an eight-shot victory.  Aside from a crazy 9th hole, where the entire final group struggled, Tiger was dominant.  He now heads to Southern Hills for the year's final major. 

The South African Sabbatini, who said Woods looked "as beatable as ever" after this year's Wachovia championship, struggled mightily, so much so that at one point he requested that a spectator be removed from the course.
