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.

CUT GOLF

Cut Golf is a unique company that claims they are the “Best Damn Golf Ball Under $20”.

The Cut 3 is a three-piece golf ball that is made for the slower swing speeds who demand maximum performance out of their golf ball. This golf ball does not sacrifice distance for performance. You will have ideal distance off the tee without sacrificing performace around the greens. The Cut 4 is a four-piece golf ball made for the higher swing speeds. Again, with the urethane cover, this ball is designed for high balls speeds and spin without compromising control. The Cut 4 was named to Golf Digest Hot List Silver 2018

This three-piece golf ball provides amazing distance off the tee, control with the long irons and spin and feel on and around the green. Of all the top OEM’s on the market, this ball was able to give our host, Colton Little, five more yards on his already long drives. The ball feels incredible off the club face and sounds just as good as well! This golf ball was also named to Golf Digest Hot List of 2018.

Can 4 Yards More Help You?

Can 4 Yards More Help You?

There is one thing we all need on the golf course. We all need the golf ball to travel further off the tee. One or two more yards would be just fine, but what about 4 yards more? The folks at the Greens Keeper, developed a golf tee that would allow for you to gain 4 yards more off the tee, whether you are using a driver, iron or hybrid.

Designed to make you longer off the tee, the 4 yards more tee is a tee that has a six-pronged, head that gives the golf ball less friction off the tee. These golf tees are proven to last a long time and are extremely durable. These things can last 100 drives with the driver, the irons or the hybrid in your bag.

Different colors, means different sizes. Tee it up really high or just simply put it in the ground for those iron shots. Any shot, any club, the 4 Yards More tee will allow you to be successful and gain more distance on each tee shot.
