St. John’s golf: Keegan Bradley cut from Shriners Hospitals for Children

Former St. John’s golf standout Keegan Bradley was unable to make the cut at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The hill was too steep to climb for Keegan Bradley in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open as the former Red Storm star missed the cut at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas, Nevada.

After a one-under par round on Thursday, Bradley went for a four-under par round on Friday but the five-under through his first two days were unable to reach the weekend for the St. John’s Hall of Famer.

The cut line ended up being seven-under par and Bradley tried his best to try and reach that mark but after birdies and No. 15 and No. 16, the 34-year old parred No. 17 and No. 18 to end his week.

Despite missing the cut, Bradley only bogeyed two holes, No. 12 in Round 1 and No. 8 in Round 2 following his T-4 finish last week at the Sanderson Farms Championship.

The Shriners Hospitals for Children Open was won by Martin Laird over Matthew Wolff and Austin Cook in a playoff.

In the three events Bradley has taken part in during the 2021 PGA Tour season, he has missed the cut in two tournaments and the other would be the Top-5 finish last week.

The other event Bradley played in was the United States Open and the former Johnnie has continued his inconsistent play from the 2020 season, but already is sitting at No. 32 in the very, very early Fed-Ex Cup Rankings with 123 points.

Even with those two cuts missed, Bradley has still made $297,000 in this season.

Keegan Bradley will remain in Las Vegas as he will take part in the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek this week at Shadow Creek Golf Course.

The event has a purse of $9.7 million, the largest purse of a non-major championship thus far in the 2021 PGA Tour season.
