Keegan Bradley - October 19, 2012


Bradley said that there has not been much time since the Ryder Cup ended that he has not thought about that weekend. There were so many great moments at Medinah and it was something that he had wanted to be a part of for so many years. After anticipating that week for so long, it more than lived up to any expectation that he had.

There is nothing that can prepare you for what it is like to be part of the Ryder Cup. It is an unbelievable experience and there is an energy to the event and the crowds that you do not find anywhere else in golf. Davis Love III was an amazing captain and all of the veterans like Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk, and Tiger Woods were very enthusiastic about the event and their excitement about the event motivated him to enjoy the experience even more.

He knew Friday night that he would only be playing in the Saturday Morning Foursomes match and would be sitting for the Afternoon Four-Ball matches. It is easy to second guess the decision because of what ultimately happened but it was the intention of Davis Love III to have all of his players sit for at least one session before Sunday and all of the players agreed with the strategy.

The last two years have been unbelievable since he graduated from the Tour to the PGA TOUR and then winning three times on the PGA TOUR. When he looks back at the experiences of winning the PGA Championship and winning other tournaments, it feels like he is watching a movie because the moments were just so incredible.

When asked about the possible decision of banning the anchoring of a putter, Bradley said that it is very disappointing that this decision is being made seemingly because players are having success with the method at the highest levels of the game. Because the method has been legal, he has spent many hours practicing that way in an effort to be successful and it would be disappointing to have to change after so much work.

He recently played a round of golf with Michael Jordan at Medalist Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida. Jordan was doing his usual trash talking and Bradley said that he would go 3-3 on the final two holes to win their match and then he proceeded to do exactly that. After winning their match, Bradley was more than happy to give Jordan a few verbal jabs as they walked off the 18th green.
