The Golf Blog says: Keegan Bradley, son of a PGA pro and nephew to LPGA star Pat Bradley, won the 93rd PGA Championship by 1 shot in a 3 hole playoff.

Bradley looked like he lost the tournament on the 15th hole after he skulled a pitch shot across the green into the water. Bradley triple bogeyed hole, which gave the leader Jason Dufner a 4-shot lead.

Dufner, however, proceeded to hit his tee shot on the 15th hole into the water and ended up bogeying the hole. He still had a 3 shot lead with only 3 holes left, but those 3 holes were playing incredibly difficult. Dufner went bogey-bogey on 16 and 17, but parred the 18th hole to get into a playoff. The playoff was necessary because Bradley went birdie-birdie on 16 and 17.

In the playoff, Dufner almost holed his approach shot on 16, but his ball, somewhat unluckily, ended up above the hole about 5 feet away. Bradley then stuffed his shot even closer, and, importantly, below the hole. Dufner missed, and Bradley made. That was just about the tournament, as Dufner bogeyed the next hole giving Bradley a two-shot lead. Dufner made things interesting on the final playoff hole by sinking a nice birdie, but Bradley safely parred the hole.

Bradley, who is only 25 years old, is a rookie on the PGA Tour and looks like he has a bright future. He hits the ball a long way, and he is the first person to win a major with a belly putter. Ah, yes, the belly putter!
