ORLANDO, Fla. – By most accounts, Keegan Bradley has had a successful 2013-14 season: six top-25 finishes in nine starts, highlighted by a tie for 10th in Malaysia.
For Bradley, though, close isn’t good enough. He wants the trophy.
“I’m really anxious to win a tournament, that’s for sure,” Bradley said after a 6-under 66 Saturday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. “I would love to get a win before Augusta, obviously. I think anybody would.”
Through three rounds at Bay Hill he’s in contention, trailing leader Adam Scott by three shots. They will form Sunday’s final pairing.
“I’ve given myself a lot of great opportunities to win the last couple of years,” Bradley said. “It’s really, really tough to win out here.”
“It doesn’t take much to rattle off a couple,” Bradley said. “It’s such a fine line (between) winning and coming in 10th. Hopefully tomorrow I can shoot a low one and get it.”
