Keegan Bradley, who burst onto the global scene with his victory at
the PGA Championship in August, has taken his game halfway around
the world to the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in
Shanghai, China. The PGA TOUR rookie and two-time TOUR winner
opened with a bogey-free, 7-under 65 at Sheshan International Golf
Club that currently has him two shots clear of Alexander Noren and
CIMB Asia Pacific Classic champion Bo Van Pelt. Bradley played the
four par 5s at Sheshan International Golf Club flawlessly, posting
three birdies and an eagle on No. 18, his ninth hole of the round.
There were two 65s posted in last year’s event. The lone
opening-round 65 was carded by Francesco Molinari, who went on to
claim the title.
