IRVING, Texas -- Keegan Bradley will soon play the par-5 seventh, one of two par 5s at TPC Four Seasons Resort. He has feasted on those two holes at this week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.
Bradley is a cumulative 7 under on the par 5s -- the seventh and the 16th -- through his first three rounds, with five birdies and an eagle on his six attempts. His eagle came at the seventh hole when he drove the green in two and made a putt from just outside 10 feet. That happened in the first round en route to his course-record 10-under 60.
No player in the field this week has performed better on the par 5s.
Of course, it's no surprise that Bradley has taken advantage of the par 5s. He ranks tied for third on the PGA TOUR in par-5 scoring average with a 4.50 average. Tiger Woods is first at 4.36 with Justin Rose second at 4.41.
