Bradley's BMW victory worth the (long) wait

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. – Through 54 holes, Keegan Bradley had done enough to secure an invite to the Tour Championship.

He was three off the lead, hunting his first win in six years.

But when two days worth of rain threatened to cancel the final round of the BMW Championship, part of him thought, maybe that’s just fine.

“Truthfully I was really fixated on making the Tour Championship, and I kind of knew if we didn't play today, I was in it,” he said Monday, sitting next to both the BMW Championship trophy and the FedExCup.

“It was the weirdest couple of days because I knew in the back of my mind if we didn't play, I was in Atlanta. It was my goal to start the year. It was difficult to get ready to play because I was like, ‘Man, if they call it, I'm good.’ But I was only three back.”

Luckily for Bradley, the Tour was able to stage the final round outside Philadelphia.

And when it finally ended, a day late, with rain still falling on Aronimink Golf Club, it was Bradley celebrating on the 18th green, raising his arms in victory after defeating Justin Rose in a playoff.
