Former St. John’s golf standout Keegan Bradley made the cut at The Northern Trust in his home state of Massachusetts.

Sometimes all you have to do is go back home to get your mojo back and that’s exactly what former St. John’s golf star Keegan Bradley has done.

The Boston, Massachusetts native has been on the links at TPC Boston in Norton, Massachusetts and following a three-under Round One, Bradley posted a four-under Round Two to move him to seven-under par at The Northern Trust.

In the final threesome to tee off on Friday afternoon, starting on the back nine, the former Red Storm star got his round started with two straight pars before his carded his first, and only, bogey of the day at No. 12.

Back-to-back pars at No. 13 and No. 14 set up Bradley for a strong finish to his first nine holes after back-to-back birdies on No. 15 and No. 16, the former PGA Championship winner parred No. 17 and made the turn to the back nine with a birdie at No. 18 to head to the first tee box at two-under for his round.

A par at No. 1 and birdie at No. 2 kept things in a positive trajectory for Keegan Bradley as he then rattled off four pars in a row before he was able to sink yet another birdie putt at No. 7 and ended his round with pars on No. 8 and No. 9 for a four-under, 67.
