Keegan Bradley was cruising along on Friday, 3 under par through 14 holes but well off the lead at the RBC Canadian Open, when things turned around – quickly.
Bradley began his run with an 11-footer for birdie at the 15th hole and finished birdie-eagle-birdie-eagle, playing his last four holes in 6 under to shoot 63.
“That was wild,” Bradley said. “It turned kind of an average day out here into something really special. There’s not many courses you can do that on like you can out here. That’s what makes it such a great event.”
