2011 Memorial Tournament: SPORTS SPOTLIGHT: Keegan Bradley Interview

Powered by Cincopa WordPress plugin


Up until last week’s HP Byron Nelson Championship in Irving, Texas, nobody really paid attention to PGA Tour golfer Keegan Bradley.

Sure, he’s the nephew of LPGA legend and Hall of Fame golfer Pat Bradley and in 2010, he played in 28 tournaments and had five top-10 finishes, but he wasn’t one of the young guns that everyone expects to be in the hunt week-after-week.

Last week, he won a thrilling sudden-death playoff over Ryan Palmer, giving this year’s Tour ten of the 22 events have played into extra holes.

The 6’2, 190-pound Bradley was born in Woodstock, Vermont, on June 7, 1986. He is a graduate of St. John’s University in 2008 with a degree in Sports Management.

He joined the PGA Tour in 2008.

The 2011 season has been pretty decent for the 24-year-old. In addition to winning the Byron Nelson Championship, he finished tied for seventh at the Bob Hope Classic and tied for ninth at the Valero Texas Open.

Bradley stopped by the media center on Wednesday morning  to talk about his recent win and upcoming golf tournaments.
