NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. – With his victory Monday at Aronimink, Keegan Bradley extended his season by an extra two weeks.
Bradley vaulted 46 spots in the FedExCup points race and will now head to East Lake sixth in the postseason standings. Moments after his victory, while still standing on the 18th green, Bradley was asked if he’s ready to take a late run at the $10 million jackpot.
“I am, actually,” he said. “I don’t even know what I went to [in the standings], but man, things changed a lot here this week.”
This will mark Bradley’s fourth appearance at the Tour Championship and his first in five years. He had made three straight trips from 2011-2013.

Xander Schauffele was the one other player to jump inside the top 30 at Aronimink. His tie for third propelled him from 41st to 18th. Schauffele will be just the fourth Tour champion in the 11-year history of the FedExCup to actually defend his title the following year.
Two players hopping into the top 30 means, of course, two players were pushed out. Jordan Spieth and Emiliano Grillo started the week 27th and 29th and slipped to 31st and 32nd, respectively.
Patton Kizzire, who came to the BMW 21st in points, earned the last invite to Atlanta as No. 30.
