the right greenside bunker.Furyk was just right of Bradley's ball, but he was outside

the sand trap sitting down in the rough on the downslope.All Furyk could muster was

a chop out over the bunker into the rough just short of the green . . . his next chip

was nearly a double hit, that ended up 6 feet short.Bradley gouged his plugged

bunker shot to 18 feet, then stepped up and drilled it home.Now the pressure was on

Furyk to make his bogey putt to force a playoff.He rammed it through the break too

hard, and suddenly Keegan Bradley was the winner of the Bridgestone

Invitational.Although Furyk collapsed at the end, Bradley's final round 64 gave him a

chance to be in position to steal the victory.

The Ryder Cup."I try not to let people know how much the Ryder Cup means to me,

but I think about it every second," said Bradley, who no longer has to worry about

whether he'll be picked.

a long time there, we were neck and neck.But for me I felt like I was hitting the ball

very strong, very solid and I was really lucky that it didn't rain because I'm not very

good in the rain! I don't wear a golf glove; I had two gloves in the bag that were

all‑weather gloves and I was scared to death to ever put those on.That was a big

birdie on 17 to make 18 play easier and then when I hit the last putt, the hole got in

the way and I won by two.  I'm very happy and excited to have won this.”
