All that was news to Bradley who revealed in his post-round presser that he thought the final pick happened after the Tour Championship. “Listen I wasn’t on their radar before this. I still probably have to go win Atlanta and even then I don’t know” he said. “Who knows if I go win Atlanta or do something great maybe I’ll catch the eye of the guys.”
Broadie’s research has paid dividends for Broadie too in his work as a GOLF columnist (p. 28) and a FoxSports consultant interpreting stats for U.S. Open broadcasts; and as a consigliere for TaylorMade.
At 61 lean and low-key Broadie cuts an understated profile that belies his outsize impact on the game.

But to members of golf’s firmament he’s something of a walking Watson — as in the computer not Tom.
