Top 30 Golfers for the 2015 Majors: No. 22 Keegan Bradley


They’re the cream of the major championship crop, circa 2015 — the Athlon Major Championship Dream Team. Leading up to The Masters, we'll be unveiling Athlon Sports’ 30 players to watch for majors season, with commentary on each from the Golf Channel’s Brandel Chamblee.

No. 22: Keegan Bradley

Born: June 7, 1986, Woodstock, Vt. | Career PGA Tour Wins: 3 | 2014 Wins (Worldwide): 0| 2014 Earnings (PGA Tour): $2,828,638 (28th) World Ranking: 34

Brandel Chamblee's Take

Bradley spent last year working with a new coach, and his game suffered, if only slightly. But it was enough to keep him from reaching the season-ending Tour Championship for the first time in his career. Those swing changes and the impending anchored putting ban may slow Keegan down in 2015, but he is just too good to ignore in key areas. He has length, a good wedge game and is one of the best on Tour with a mid to long iron, which is why from 2011-2014 he has finished 13th, 10th, 11th and 28th, respectively, on the money list. Winless for the last two years, if he finds a level of comfort with the swing changes, Bradley will put an end to that drought.
