7:56 pm Bradley wins PGA in playoff
JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — It took extra holes, but rookie Keegan Bradley won his first career major championship Sunday, defeating Jason Dufner by a stroke in a three-hole aggregate score playoff at Atlanta Athletic Club to capture the PGA Championship.
Bradley birdied the first hole, No. 16, then added two pars on Nos. 17 and 18, while Dufner went par-bogey-birdie to come up a stroke short.
Leading by two when he arrived at the difficult par-4 18th hole, Bradley chose to go for the green in two rather than lay up to a green that’s fronted by water. He safely cleared the pond and two-putted for the victory.
With the win, Bradley also earned 600 FedExCup points, moving from 24th to fourth in the standings.
