DUBLIN, Ohio – Keegan Bradley, who beat Ryan Palmer on Sunday in a playoff to win the HP Byron Nelson Championship, is making a comeback on Friday.
Bradley, probably still trying to come back off the proverbial cloud nine, struggled in the first round, shooting a 76. But he’s just made the turn in 3 under and moved up 30 spots on the leaderboard into a tie for 65th.
Bradley is currently on the cutline at 1 over as the afternoon wave is under way in earnest. Among the players who won’t be around for the weekend are defending FedExCup champ Jim Furyk, recent Wells Fargo Championship winner Lucas Glover and Fred Couples, who will captain the U.S. Presidents Cup team in November.
Furyk finished two rounds at 8 over while Glover and Couples are 7 over.
