Amazing PGA Championship win for 1st-timer Keegan Bradley
If you happened to miss this weekend’s PGA tournament, well …
Your winner of the 2011 PGA Championship left his rented townhouse Sunday with a batch of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches made fresh by his mother, Kay. Just before he drove away, Keegan Bradley told her, “I’m gonna do it, Mom.”
“I know,” she said. “Yes, you are.”
And then he drove to the Atlanta Athletic Club, teed off at 2:30 p.m. local time, overcame a five-stroke deficit with just three holes left to play, somehow squeezed his way into a playoff and made the kind of golf history that lasts forever.
Bradley not only won the PGA Championship, but he won it in his first majors appearance. That’s not too big of a deal, except for the part where it’s only the third time in nearly the last 100 years that someone has done that.
you missed dramatic golf history in the making.
Stirring stuff, to be sure! … even without names like Rory, Tiger, or Phil in the mix at all.
