Former St. John’s golf standout fell apart at the Houston Open, being cut from the event.

After an even-par first round at the Vivint Houston Open, Keegan Bradley completely fell apart in the second round, which resulted in the former St. John’s golf star being cut from the event.

Bradley started his second round on Friday morning on the back nine and it got off to a decent start with back-to-back pars but then things started to quickly unravel following a double-bogey on No. 12.

A par followed the forgetful hole on No. 13 but then back-to-back bogeys on No. 14 and No. 15 put the Red Storm Hall of Famer well behind the pack as the race to make the cut line began.

Keegan Bradley looked to try and reverse his early round bad luck with an eagle on No. 17 but that momentum shift did not last long after another double-bogey on No. 18.

Making the turn to the front nine, Bradley started with a par on No. 1, but a third double-bogey on the day was carded at No. 2 before one shot was able to be gained at No. 3 with a birdie.

The 34-year old then registered pars throughout the remainder of his round to end the day with a five-over par, 75, Friday morning in Houston, missing the cut and finishing his tournament with a score of five-over as well.

Since the 2021 PGA Tour season began, Keegan Bradley has played in six events and missed the cut four times, with one made cut event, the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek, being a cut-less tournament.

Keegan Bradley will not participate in The Masters as the former St. John’s standout was not invited and did not qualify for the biggest event in the sport.
