SEASON IN REVIEW: Two years into his PGA TOUR career, Keegan Bradley has three victories -- including last year's PGA Championship and the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational this season. He followed that win at Firestone, where he closed with a 64 and erased a four-stroke deficit, with a solid tie for third in his title defense at Kiawah Island. He admits to putting too much pressure on himself in the Playoffs -- missing the cut in the opener at Bethpage Black where the St. John's grad used to play in college and nearly doing the same at the Deustche Bank Championship in his native New England. He made the cut on the number there and shot 63-69 the final two rounds to tie for 13th. -- Helen Ross

EAST LAKE HISTORY: Bradley qualified for the TOUR Championships by Coca-Cola last year on his way to Rookie of the Year honors. He shot 64 in the opening round and went on to tie for 11th.

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Fred Albers, on-course correspondent for SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, provides a quick look at Bradley:
I have to check out the official numbers on this, but I think Keegan makes more long putts than anyone else on TOUR. Every time I watch him play, Bradley rolls home at least one 20-footer.
