For a brief moment Monday afternoon talk swept ’round the golf world that Bradley would make a capable final captain’s pick for the Ryder Cup team. Caddie-turned-NBC analyst Bones McKay suggested during the broadcast that should Bradley win he’d certainly be in consideration for the final spot.
Asked last summer how he planned to hone his game for the ’17 FedEx Cup playoffs Rory McIlroy revealed that he wasn’t off to look for answers in the dirt. He was off to meet with Broadie.
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.”
