Keegan Bradley bounced back from a season-opening missed cut at the Safeway Open in stellar fashion. His week at the CIMB Classic ended with him making a run at eventual champion Pat Perez on Sunday, and even though he wound up falling short in the end, he has to be feeling great about where his game is headed right now.
Bradley ranked fourth in the field at TPC Kuala Lumpur in Greens in Regulation, and even though he fell just 14th in the field in birdies (he had 20), he made every vital par putt he faced over the final 36 holes. He went bogey-free in the last two rounds, and that allowed him to push Pat Perez even more down the stretch.
Of course, this wasn’t the first time that Bradley has had success at the CIMB Classic. It was his second straight top-ten finish in Malaysia, and now the mission changes a bit. He’ll look to carry that momentum over into a new event, at a new course.
Coming off a 2016-17 season in which Bradley finally started to look like himself again, he’ll be ready to prove that last week wasn’t just a one-time hot week. Bradley is on the verge of winning again, and it could be this week in Korea.
