Yesterday was a fantastic finish at Riveria in the Northern Trust. Compelling golf all around.
But it's time to call out Keegan Bradley for his absolutely inane tics and frankly, bad behavior. Let's start with the tics that he has in pre-shot routine. How many times does he need to step away from the ball? Three, Four... Five maybe? On 17 I counted him walking up out of that bunker 4 times and then stepping back from the bal 2 more times. Six resets before he takes his shot. Does anyone recall how Sergio got crucified for his antics a few years ago? It was no where near as annoying as this. Keegan, it's time to take a couple deep breaths and re-tool the pre-shot planning my friend. You're too squirrely and high strung.
Then there is the constant pre-shot spitting. When did that come up? Even the announcers sort of joked about it, but yet there he was, spitting before his shot. Once again, really? Tiger spit and got hammered. Sergio, while his form was appaling by spitting in a cup, is really the same personal expelling of fluids. So it's also time for having a talk with young Mr Bradley and reminding him he's on TV and spitting on course.
Knock it off Keegan. You have a promising future, but these tics have to stop.
