Bradley's yardage book helps Wie win first major


CROMWELL, Conn. – Even before Michelle Wie arrived at Pinehurst No. 2, she called in a little favor from a friend.

A friend who happened to finish T-4 at the U.S. Open.

“She was texting me earlier in the week, asking me if she could have my [yardage] book,” Keegan Bradley recalled after his final round at the Travelers Championship. “I said of course.”

He not only handed it over after he finished last Sunday, he made sure it was fully helpful.

“Before I gave it to her,” he explained, “I put a little extra in there, just to make sure she could use it.”

As for hearing about his friend win the U.S. Women’s Open, Bradley elicited a big smile.

“I’m so pumped she’s playing well. I’m happy for her. She deserves it.”

Below is the Twitter conversation between Wie and Bradley during the aftermath of Wie's first major win. She also thanks Rickie Fowler, who apparently helped her as well.
