A player trying to salvage what has been a winless calendar year is Rory McIlroy, still No. 3 in the world rankings behind Woods and Mickelson. But he's encouraged by looking back at where he was just about a year ago.

"I was really searching last year for answers," he said. "I've come to the conclusion that I just need to go out there and play. I was focusing too much on mechanics and technique, and I just needed to go out there and see the shots and play them. Obviously, that seemed to work well."

It worked so well that McIlroy had a top 10 at the Bridgestone and then turned around and captured the 2012 PGA Championship at Kiawah Island.

Bradley, who took advantage of Furyk's double bogey on the 72nd hole to win last year, gets wired just coming to Firestone, an historic old layout that has hosted many memorable majors and regular tour events over the decades.

"Because of the history of the golf course, you really can feel it," he said. "It's one of these courses where you can tell the tournament has got a little more of a buzz to it."

This year, the buzz is especially loud.
