Keegan Bradley battled back from a 5 shot deficit to defeat Jason Dufner in a playoff at the 93rd PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club on Sunday.
Dufner seemed to have the championship in hand when he reached the par-3 15th hole holding a 4 shot lead. He then proceeded to dump his ball in the water and even after a miraculous bogey save, his lead continued to diminish. Bradley battled back after what seemed to be a tournament ending triple bogey on the 15th hole to win a 3 hole playoff by a shot over Dufner.
“I can’t believe this thing is sitting next to me,” he said, looking at the Champions Wannamaker Trophy. Bradley earned his first career win earlier this year at the Valero Texas Open in San Antonio and this win marks the first Major championship win of his career.
Congratulations to Keegan Bradley on becoming the 2011 PGA Champion.
