Former St. John’s golf standout Keegan Bradley is tied with Tiger Woods, among many others after the First Round of The Northern Trust.

Keegan Bradley is back out on the golf course as the Fed Ex Cup Playoffs are underway on the PGA Tour and the Top-125 players in the Fed-Ex Cup Standings have converged to Norton, Massachusetts for The Northern Trust.

Following being cut from the last tournament he’s played in, Keegan Bradley put forth a solid performance in his first round at TPC Boston.

More from Storm The Paint

After 18 holes the former Red Storm standout is three-under par, which places him at T-30 and four strokes off the lead.

There are 20 players who are three-under par, including Bradley, most notably defending champion Patrick Reed, World No. 1 Justin Thomas, and Tiger Woods.

Things didn’t get off to a great start for Bradley following his par at No. 1, he bogeyed No. 2 but responded with birdies at No. 3 and No. 4.

Now sitting a one-under, Bradley carded a par at No.  5 and a bogey at No. 6 to bring him back down to even for the tournament, but that would be the last bogey of the afternoon for the St. John’s Hall of Famer and it would be consistent pars until he reached No. 16.
