After his first nine holes on the back nine in the first round of the 2012 PGA Championship, Keegan Bradley is in a tie for eighteenth at one under par. The defending champion of the tournament, Bradley was three under par after the first two holes but fell off that pace with consecutive bogeys on holes 13 and 14.
Bradley, a Jupiter, FL resident, enters the PGA Championship on a hot streak after winning the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational during the weekend prior to the 2012 PGA Championship. The invitational win made Bradley the No. 15 ranked player in the world, a career high for the 26-year old.
Tiger Woods, a member of Bradley's grouping on Thursday, is one after his first nine holes of the day on the back nine, earning him a tie for the No. 18 spot in the tournament. Two-time winner of the tournament, Vijay Singh, will tee off at 10:30 a.m.
