- Keegan Bradley won the ZOZO Title in Japan with a single-shot victory for his most memorable PGA Tour victory in more than four years.
- One more birdie on the 17 gave Bradley a two-chance lead going into the final round after Putnam and Fowler recorded intruders on the back nine.
Keegan Bradley came out on top for his most memorable PGA Tour Title in over four years with a single-shot triumph at the ZOZO Title in Japan.
He checked a two-under 68 to complete one stroke in front of American countrymen Andrew Putnam and Rickie Fowler, the short-term pioneer.
It was the 36-year-old’s fifth Visit win and his first since a triumph at the BMW Title in 2018.
“I’ve truly invested a ton of energy in this slow time of year,” he said.
“This is the very thing I maintain that I should do – I need to win competitions, play in Ryder Cups, and be in the discussion. This is a decent beginning.”
Bradley, whose main significant come out on top came at the PGA Title in 2011, had begun the very first moment shot behind Fowler yet started to lead the pack with consecutive birdies on the 6th and seventh openings.
After Putnam and Fowler recorded intruders on the back nine, one more birdie on the seventeenth offered Bradley a two-chance lead going into the last opening.
He finished with a standard, completing 15-under standard on 265 at Narashino Nation Club in Chiba.
“It’s the reason I practice so hard. It would be hard, and that two-putt on 16 was major,” said Bradley.
“Things are difficult for me ordinarily, so the birdie on the seventeenth was one of the most outstanding openings of my life. This is so unique. I played in the last gathering here when Tiger Woods won. I’m so pleased to win this competition.”
