Keegan Bradley Wins at Aronimink; BMW Championship

Keegan Bradley Wins at Aronimink; BMW Championship

keegan bradley bmw championship

Newtown Square, Pa – Keegan Bradley fired a final round 64 on Monday at the BMW Championship on a rain soaked Aronimink Golf Club, but it appeared that he’d come up a stroke short after his bogey at the last. Justin Rose only needed par on the home hole to seal the deal at -21, but when his par putt from 12 feet lipped out, the playoff was on. Both players returned to the 18th for the 1st hole of sudden death, and that’s all it took. Both Keegan Bradley and Rose had short par putts, Rose from 5 feet, Keegan was inside 3. Rose’s par putt wasn’t even close, a gift for sure. Keegan’s wasted no time and poured his into the cup for the win. The fourth of his career and the first in six years. For Rose, (who needed the solo second place finish to become No.1 in the World for the first time) it was a bittersweet way to finish the week, he seemed to have the tournament won twice, but couldn’t quite finish it.

“I’m disappointed right now,” Rose said. “To bogey the 72nd hole and then to do it again in a playoff is obviously something I’m not going to be that happy about. Obviously, a big consolation being world No. 1. That’s something that I will look back on this week and think that it was an incredible achievement and an incredible moment.”

For Bradley who now has a young family, this is a re-birth of a career that seemed lost. His first win in 160 events. “I came out today, I just felt great. I don’t normally love looking at leaderboards, but I watched them all day. And it was just my day, it feels so good. It was a hard road back, but it feels good.”

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the week was Jordan Spieth, who came into the BMW Championship 26th in the Fedex Cup standings. After a 73 he finished outside the top 30. He will miss the Tour Championship for the first time in his career.

Notables:

Rory McIlroy finished in fifth place at -18. Tiger Woods finished tied for sixth at  17 under par. 

After the BMW, Team USA Ryder Cup Captain Jim Furyk named Tony Finau as his final selection to the squad.

Dechambeau Goes 2 for 2 in Playoffs

Dechambeau Goes 2 for 2 in Playoffs

Norton, Massachusetts – Pure dominance. That’s the best way to describe this playoff run by Bryson DeChambeau after he won again for the second week in a row at the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston. DeChambeau’s final round 67 (16 under par total) was enough for a two-stroke victory over Justin Rose.

Early on, it was 54 hole leader Abraham Ancer that provided the biggest obstacle for DeChambeau, but late in the back nine it was Aussie Cameron Smith who provided the late charge before faltering at the par-5 18th (finishing solo third at -13). DeChambeau’s birdies at the 8th and 9th gave him a two-stroke lead (that he would stretch to four), but just as Smith got to within one, DeChambeau hit wedge to 9 feet on the 15th and rolled in the decisive clincher. “That was it,” he said. “That’s how I play golf right there. Make that birdie and come off the green confident.”

With back to back victories over the best players in the world, the 24 year-old from Clovis, California has secured the top spot in the Fedex Cup standings going into the Tour Championship in Atlanta (regardless of what happens at the BMW Championship at Aronimink this week).

Fedex Cup Standings heading into the BMW Championship:

1. Bryson DeChambeau

2. Dustin Johnson

3. Justin Rose

4. Tony Finau

5. Justin Thomas

Bryson is a lock to be named to represent Team USA at  the Ryder Cup later this fall, when Captain Jim Furyk names his first 3 picks at the PGA of America press conference on Tuesday

Breakthrough Golf Tech

Breakthrough Golf Tech

Breakthrough Golf Tech is a company that is revolutionizing the putting world. Their new Stability putter shaft has been making a huge splash on the Web.com Tour. It is a putter shaft that allows you to improve accuracy and deliver a predictable role. Two of the major components of putting; accuracy and role.

For starters, it is pretty simple process with getting a Stability putter shaft equipped to your putter. The folks at Breakthrough Golf Tech send you a box to ship your EVERYDAY putter to which they will install the shaft on your putter. From there, it’s all about the technology.

For most, whether you know it or not, the key to missing and making putts is directly related to MOI (Moment of Inertia: Resistance to twisting). From the moment we take the club back to the our follow through, the ability to keep the putter head square is incredibly important. When putters and putter shafts have high MOI, the twisting of the club become harder to do resulting in straighter putts. This is exactly what the Stability putter from Breakthrough Golf Tech allow you to get a grip on.

For the more technical component of WHY this putter shaft has been helping golfers all over the world, Barney Adams (A golf legend in club making) gives us a breakdown as simple as possible.

“Stability was designed to improve putter-specific motion and performance. It increases flexural rigidity and significantly reduces torsional rotation through BGT’s patented design. It limits unwanted movement by stiffening the shaft by 25% without abolishing feel and reducing torque by almost 50%, to deliver the club face squarer at impact. The performance of the shaft was exhaustively tested with hundreds of putters using state-of-the-art high-speed cameras, robots, SAM Putt Lab, Quintic Ball Roll software and Trackman4. The result was to re-invent the putter shaft from the ground up.”

Our host, Mike Billingsley had is very reliable Miura Putter equipped with the Stability putter shaft and he has seen an improvement on his ability to keep the ball on line with more confidence on short putts and long putts. Check out our review on the Stability shaft in the video above.
