Former St. John’s golf star Keegan Bradley is looking for a magical weekend at the PGA Championship, the first major event of the season.

The first major championship of the golf season is finally here and the PGA Tour turns to San Francisco, California at TPC Harding Park for the PGA Championship starting on Thursday morning.

Previously scheduled events such as the U.S Open and Masters have been rescheduled for mid-September and mid-November, respectively as The Open has been canceled over coronavirus concerns.

Since the restart of the PGA Tour, things haven’t been as smooth as they could have been for former St. John’s standout Keegan Bradley but all could be erased with a perfect weekend.

Bradley is coming off of a T-52 finish at the World Golf Championship – FedEx St. Jude Invitational with a one-over par final score, tied with Jon Rahm, Max Homa, Marc Leishman, and Joaquín Niemann.

The former Red Storm standout has yet to finish in the Top-10 this season with his best finish coming at Sony Open in Hawaii where he tied for twelfth.

Bradley is also ranked at No. 105 in the FedEx Cup Standings as the St. Jude Invitational was won by Justin Thomas with a score of 13-under par.

Keegan Bradley will be in a group with Davis Love III and Jimmy Walker, teeing off at 4:42 pm EST on Thursday afternoon and 11:17am EST on Friday morning.
