Keegan kicking U.S. Open mindset at Travelers


CROMWELL, Conn. – Following a T-4 finish at the U.S. Open last week, Keegan Bradley said he’ll need to remind himself that birdies are more readily available at this week’s Travelers Championship.

“Much different mindset,” he said. “Basically you want to go out and try to make as many birdies as you can out here, be really aggressive every hole, as opposed to the U.S. Open, where you want to make a lot of pars and kind of just hit a lot of fairways and choose around pars as you can.

“Out here, it's how low you can go. You put yourself in position to birdie a lot of these holes.”

Bradley said he enjoys this dynamic as opposed to the other way around.

“I think it's easier to go from that to this as opposed to easier to really hard. I think it's a really nice spot for the tournament because it's really fun coming here and knowing that you're going to hopefully make a ton of birdies. It's a really nice change of pace coming off the U.S. Open.”
