B of the D Keegan Bradley puts American golf back on top, on his back

Keegan Bradley (-8) took home the PGA Championship Sunday afternoon in a monumental win for American golf.

In what was perhaps one of the best come-from-behind wins in recent golf history, Bradley stormed the field with a surge unparalleled by any other golfer all week.  After a dreadful triple bogey on the 15th, he laced two consecutive birdies, forcing a three-hole playoff against Jason Dufner.  And then this happened:

Meet the new American golf hero, Keegan Bradley

Keegan's interview after his second round 64:

The 93rd PGA Championship was one for the record books.  Bradley, who was playing in his first Major ever, was the first American to win a Major Tournament since 2010, ending the longest such drought in Tour history.  Bradley was also the seventh consecutive first-time major winner, which is also the longest such streak in PGA history.

The Floridian took home just over 1.4 million dollars with his more than stellar performance.  B of the D honors no doubt.
