Keegan Bradley Player Profile And What's In The Bag
KEEGAN Bradley won his first PGA Tour title in more than four years with a one-shot victory at the ZOZO Championship in Japan.
He carded a two-under 68 to finish one stroke ahead of American compatriots Andrew Putnam and Rickie Fowler, the overnight leader. It was the 36-year-old's fifth Tour win, and his first since the BMW Championship in 2018.
"I've really put a lot of work in this off-season," he said. "This is what I want to do - I want to win tournaments, I want to play in Ryder Cups and I want to be in the conversation. This is a good start."
Who Is Keegan Bradley?
Bradley was born in Woodstock on June 7, 1986. He turned professional in 2008 and began playing on the Hooters Tour, winning at Southern Dunes. Bradley won a second Hooters Tour event in 2009 at the Texas Honing Open. He made 22 cuts in 26 events that season and earned $84,000. He also played two Nationwide Tour events, making the cut in both of them. He failed to gain his PGA Tour card at qualifying school for the 2010 season.
In 2010, Bradley played on the Nationwide Tour, where he recorded four consecutive top-five finishes late in the season to finish 14th on the money list and earn his PGA Tour card for 2011.
He won the US PGA Championship in 2011, becoming only the sixth golfer to win a major at his first attempt, joining Ben Curtis, Willie Park, Fred Herd, Francis Ouimet and Horace Rawlins. He also won the Byron Nelson Classic the same year and was named PGA Tour rookie of the year.
The following year he won the WGC Bridgestone Invitational but had to wait until 2018 for his next success, at the BMW Championship.
Bradley, who is one of the most deliberate players on the PGA Tour, used to anchor his putter and had to adapt when anchoring was banned.
He represented the USA at the Ryder Cup in 2012 and 2014 and played in the Presidents Cup in 2013.
He has made a decent start to the 2022-23 season, winning the ZOZO and finishing in a tie for fifth at the Sanderson Farm Championship. Before his victory in Japan he was 24th in the FedEx Cup standings and 44th in the world rankings.
He averages 298 yards from the tee, hits 57% of fairways and finds 72.22% of greens inreculation. Bradley averages 5.38 birdies per round and gets up and down from the sand 4.44% of the time and averages 28 putts per round.
