Keegan Bradley makes rookie mistake

2016 02 Bradley

Even tour pros make simple mistakes – just ask Keegan Bradley who was handed a two-shot penalty at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.


The American, who is without a win since the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, started his first round at TPC Scottsdale with 15 clubs in the bag and, as a result, was reprimanded by PGA Tour officials.

Bradley, who carries either a 3-iron or hybrid in his bag depending on the course, simply forgot to take one of them out the bag, turning his five-under-par 66 into a 68.

“I don’t know what we missed to not catch that,” Bradley, who sits three shots behind Rickie Fowler and Shane Lowry, told the PGA Tour. “It sucks.”

Bradley’s caddie, Steve Hale, took the blame, saying: “That’s on me.” But Bradley, was embroiled with his bagman in a fierce row with Miguel Angel Jimenez at the WGC-Match Play last May, quickly forgave him, saying: “We all make mistakes.”

Fowler put last week’s Farmers Insurance Open missed cut behind him, shooting a six-under-par 65 to co-lead with Irishman Shane Lowry. Bubba Watson shot a two-under-par 69, and was roundly jeered on the 16th hole for comments he made criticising the TPC Scottsdale course.
