ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “l can always figure out a way to spend an extra $15 million. I can figure that out. I mean, I'm not playing it for the money. I don't tee it up to try to win millions of dollars. I just tee it up because I enjoy the competition, I enjoy playing the game and coming out here and competing.

IT AIN’T EASY: Keegan Bradley recorded his fourth PGA TOUR win in his 209th career start on TOUR at the 2018 BMW Championship. Bradley required extra holes to secure the victory as he defeated Justin Rose on the first playoff hole. He played his final round in the 2018 BMW Championship 14 strokes better than his first two final rounds in the FedExCup playoffs last season. His 64 was his lowest final round in his FedExCup playoff career.

Bradley made a career most 28 birdies marking his most in a four-round event on TOUR. It was five more than his previous best 23 at the 2012 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Bradley led the field for only the second time in his career in SG: Putting, outperforming the BMW Championship field by +1.790 strokes per round. Entering the 2018 BMW Championship, he ranked 186th in SG: Putting losing -0.493 strokes per round.

“It was a big moment in my career because it culminated a lot of hard work and battling back that I had to do,” noted Bradley. “It's a win that I remember most fondly, I think, with my family and with kind of what I had to go through to get back there. It was just a tournament and a moment I'll never forget the rest of my life.”
