As a Father’s Day surprise, Keegan’s father Mark took over as caddie on the final hole of the U.S. Open Championship.
Based on his phenomenal first year on the tour, including a major win in the PGA Championship, Keegan Bradley was voted 2011 Rookie of the Year by his peers on the PGA Tour. His most recent accomplishment was a stunning, come-from-behind win at the World Golf Championships — Bridgestone Invitational. The win secured his spot on the 2012 Ryder Cup Team USA.
The prototypical modern golfer, Keegan always ranks near the top in driving distance and has great touch on and around the greens. He turned pro in 2008 and became a PGA Tour member in 2010.
Keegan Bradley’s PGA Championship win was the highlight of his breakout first season. In his 28 starts in 2011, he won twice (including a win in a major) and finished in the top 10 four times. He also won the PGA Grand Slam of Golf. His 2011 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year win capped off his remarkable first year as a pro.
Golf certainly appears to run in the family. He is the nephew of LPGA star, major champion, and World Golf Hall of Fame member Pat Bradley. In fact, his Aunt Pat has offered advice and encouragement every step of the way.
