Keegan Bradley “Thankful” for Boston, New England Fans at U.S. Open

It didn’t end exactly how he would have liked, but New England native Keegan Bradley had a heck of a week playing a U.S. Open home game at The Country Club at Brookline. 

Bradley finished at one-under par for the tournament and in a tie for seventh, his best major finish in quite some time. He was also in the second to last group on Sunday afternoon. 

“There’s a part of me that’s still happy that it’s over. I’m tapped out. What a week. I had the best time. I’m so thankful for the fans of New England and Boston. I’m proud of the way I played. I wish I had putted a little better today, but that’s the way it goes,” Bradley said in his press conference on Sunday evening.

Like during his Saturday round, Bradley received a huge ovation from the crowd after finishing out on 18 on Sunday evening. 

“Man, I’ll remember that the rest of my life. It was really special. I’m happy that my family was here to see that, and it was just amazing,” said Bradley. 

Bradley had his entire family with him, including his kids, and paid tribute to his grandmother on his shoes. 

“She was a very powerful force in our family forever. She recently passed away. She wouldn’t miss a round of golf I played or my Aunt Pat played. I’m very proud to be her grandson. I had her with me this week. I kept looking down, and that made me very proud,” he added. 

Bradley will have one more tournament in New England when he tees it up at The Travelers Championship this week in Connecticut.
