Bradley Wins After Furyk Collapse
Furyk had been top of the leaderboard at the end of every day of the tournament and only needed a par on the 72nd hole to clinch the title, before stumbling in dramatic circumstances.
“One thing I love about this sport is I have no one to blame but myself,” Furyk said. “I’ve known it’s a cruel game for a long time.
“I’ve lost some tournaments in some pretty poor fashions, but I don’t think I’ve let one ever slip nearly as bad as this one. This was my worst effort to finish off an event.”
Bradley hit a final round six-under-par 64, including a 16-foot putt on the final hole, as he went on to claim victory.
“It just feels so great,” Bradley said. “I was reading the putt (on 18) and I just kept telling myself that this is the exact moment that I live for, that you play golf for, that you grow up your whole life, and I’m living it.
“I didn’t think for a second I was going to miss it. It was unbelievable.”
