PINEHURST, N.C. – There was nothing lost in translation.
“Different,” said Kaymer, who was paired with Bradley and Jason Dufner for Rounds 1 and 2.
Bradley’s pre-shot routine has been described by some observers as fidgety and, at times, can be a little too slow for some. In fact, the threesome was warned by officials for being out of position on the group’s second hole on Friday.
Kaymer set a new U.S. Open 36-hole scoring record at 10-under 130, while Bradley finished 1 under on Friday and 2 under for the championship.
“It's not easy to play with Keegan; I must admit that,” Kaymer said. “Sometimes he takes a little bit more time and sometimes he takes a little bit less time, so it's quite difficult to adjust to. But we know that. I played with Keegan the last few years many times, so we know that his pre-shot routine can change.”
