Winner’s Circle: Keegan Bradley Claims Victory at the BMW Championship

Keegan Bradley shot a 6-under par 64 on Monday at Aronimink Golf Club and then edged Justin Rose on the first playoff hole to claim his first victory in six years at the BMW Championship.

Bradley, who entered the final round four off the lead of Rose, finished his fourth day in Philadelphia with eight birdies against two bogeys to sign for a 64 and a four-day score of 20-under par.

For his fourth career PGA Tour title, the 32-year old Vermont native earned $1,650,000, along with 2,000 points and will move to 6th-place as he heads to East Lake for the first time in five years.
