Keegan Bradley, the 2011 PGA Championship winner, called the experience “pretty cool” and “one I’m sure we’ll never forget.”

Mark Bradley said his earliest memories of U.S. Opens with his son ended with disappointment, when Keegan would be driving back from regional or sectional qualifying and call to say he had missed the cut by a little or a lot.

“So it’s been a long haul, but he finally made it,” Mark Bradley said of his son. “And it was the right time and the right place and he learned a lot.”

Keegan Bradley has played three majors now, and is 3 for 3 in cuts made. Besides winning the PGA, he tied for 27th at the Masters, and tied for 68th Sunday.
