Bradley splits with longtime caddie 'Pepsi' Hale


Mired in a season-long slump, Keegan Bradley has opted to make a change at caddie.

Bradley has won three times on the PGA Tour with Steve "Pepsi" Hale on the bag, including the 2011 PGA Championship. But according to Golf Channel's Todd Lewis, the pair have split following Bradley's missed cut at the Zurich Classic two weeks ago:

According to Lewis, Bradley will have Chad Reynolds on the bag this week at The Players Championship. Reynolds most recently looped for Nick Watney, who had season-ending back surgery in March.

Bradley is one of several high-profile players who has struggled to transition to life after the anchoring ban. He is 34th this season in strokes gained-tee-to-green, but ranks 202nd on Tour in strokes gained-putting.

After starting the year at No. 70 in the world, Bradley has dropped to 114th after missing the cut in seven of 11 starts this year. His lone top-10 finish since July came at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, where he finished T-8.

Bradley is currently 137th in the FedEx Cup standings, but he is exempt through next season by virtue of his wins at the 2011 PGA and 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, his most recent Tour title.
