In 2011, on his rookie year on Tour, Bradley won the Byron Nelson and the US PGA Championship, joining an exclusive club of players to win in their first Major championship start. However, he failed to win from mid-2012 to late 2018, before returning to the winner’s circle at the BMW Championship.
Keegan has struggled to hit his previous heights in recent years, with only three top 10 finishes across 2019 and 2020, but he was close to winning Valspar in 2021. He undoubtedly has the ball striking ability to contend in events where scoring is tougher but he needs the putter to co-operate.
Keegan and his wife had another baby in January 2021.
Pressure Performance Analysis
All of Bradley’s victories to date have come from behind. Back against him if he is leading after three rounds. His Golf Betting Club Pressure Performance Rating is set at ⭐⭐.
✅ Started the final round of the ZOZO Championship trailing by 1 shot and shot 68 to win by 1 shot. Still wasn't the most convincing win in the world.
➖ Trailed Mark Hubbard by 4 shots at the Sanderson Farms Championship and shot 70 to lose by 4 shots.
❌Trailed by 2 shots going into the final round of the US Open and shot 71 to finish 5 shots short of winner Fitzpatrick.
❌Keegan held a two shot lead at the Wells Fargo Championship after 54 holes. Shot a 72 to finish two back of Max Homa who shot 68.
➖ Started a few shots back at the weather affected PLAYERS Championship and shot 68 to finish four back of winner Smith. It should be noted he was one off the lead playing 17 but finished with two bogey's. A strong round up until then.
➖ Co-led the Valspar Championship and shot 71 to finish 2nd, 3 behind Sam Burns.
❌Began the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational 2 shots behind Lee Westwood. Shot 78 in tough conditions to finish 8 shots behind DeChambeau, another really disappointing effort.
❌Keegan held a two shot lead at the Sanderson Farms Championship at the halfway stage. Shot a really poor 73 in round three to slip back.
❌Bradley held a share of the 18-hole lead at the Farmers Insurance Open before going onto finishing 16th. He has led after 18 holes seven times on tour and never went on to win.
➖Keegan posted his best finish of 2019 at the Travelers Championship finishing 2nd to Chez Reavie. He entered the final round 6 shots behind however cut the deficit to 1 shot through 16 holes before making double bogey at 17 to lose by 4 shots.
✅Most recent victory at the BMW Championship came after a final round charge, shooting 64 to come from 3 shots behind Justin Rose to force a playoff.
✅Won the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational shooting a 64 to make up a 4 shot deficit after 54 holes.
✅He won the Byron Nelson Classic coming from 4 strokes behind after 54 holes. Likewise, he started the final round 1 shot back to win the PGA Championship.
Goes well fresh
Bradley’s last two PGA Tour top 5's have followed weeks off.
Bradley’s recent big finishes usually follow a mediocre week. His 4th at the Sanderson Farms Championship in 2020 followed two missed cuts and his 2nd at the 2019 Travellers followed a MC. Victory at the 2018 BMW came after a 49th and his 4th at the Canadian followed a 79th place finish. In fact, none of his Top-10 finishes in the last three years followed an effort better than 39th the week beforehand, so don’t be put off backing Keegan if he is not bang in form but the course suits.
