Former St. John’s golf star Keegan Bradley did not make the cut for the PGA Championship following two difficult rounds.

Keegan Bradley’s past form unfortunately followed him to TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, California as the former Red Storm star did not make the cut at the PGA Championship.

Coming off of a three-over, 73, on Thursday afternoon, Bradley tried to get himself off on a good foot with a birdie on the Par-4, 1st hole but then bogeyed the ensuing four holes to move him to three-over in the second round.

The remaining four holes of the front nine were all pars for the former Red Storm star and as he made the turn to the back nine, Bradley tried to jumpstart his round with birdies on No. 10 and No. 11 before bogey a No. 13 sent him back down the leaderboard.

A birdie on No. 14 erased the bogey on the hole prior but the hill was too steep to climb as a bogey on the Par-4, 16th hole pushed Bradley to two-over for his round as he would remain there after pars on No. 17 and No. 18.

The three-over on Thursday combined with the two-over, 72, on Friday sent Keegan Bradley to five-over for the first two rounds of the PGA Championship, well over the one-over par cut line.
