Bradley among 28 to tee off in HawaiiKAPALUA, Hawaii - Keegan Bradley, who captured last August’s PGA Championship and the 2011 U.S. PGA Rookie of the Year award, will be among 28 players in next week’s season-opening Tournament of Champions.
Bradley is among six multiple winners from last season who will tee off starting Friday at Kapalua’s Plantation Course for the $5.6 million event that traditionally launches the U.S. PGA campaign. The winner will take home $1.12 million.
Bradley, who also won last season’s Byron Nelson Championship, is among six of seven multiple winners from last season to enter.
Others include fellow Americans Webb Simpson, Steve Stricker, Nick Watney, Mark Wilson and Bubba Watson.
The only U.S. PGA multiwin no show was world No. 1 Luke Donald of England, who captured the money title on the U.S. and European tours, an unprecedented feat, and is taking a break after a busy finish to the 2011 campaign.
Players Championship winner K.J. Choi of Korea, U.S. PGA playoff winner Bill Haas and past major winner David Toms are also in the field.
