The Golf World was dazzled…even shocked…at Keegan Bradley’s bold victory at the PGA Championship. But for Oakley, it was hardly a surprise. The PGA Tour rookie and budding O Team star displayed veteran-like poise in his intense three-hole playoff battle with Jason Dufner in front of a captivated global audience on Sunday – claiming his first major in dramatic fashion. The son of a PGA Pro and the nephew of Pat Bradley – an LPGA World Golf Hall of Fame inductee – the young standout officially hit the map on the heels of a recent win at the HP Byron Nelson Championship. And considering the grand victory on his first try in Georgia, it’s safe to say that golf stardom definitely runs in his blood.
If ‘Adam Scott’ wasn’t a household name before last weekend, it sure is now. The Aussie Golf Pro claimed a commanding victory at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational amidst a media frenzy surrounding his new caddy, Steve Williams, who was fired last month by Tiger Woods after a long stretch through the superstar’s career. “I can talk about Steve now and not Tiger,” said Adam, who rocks Oakley Flak Jacket XLJ with Slate or G30 lenses – depending on light conditions on the course. “I’m sure there are a lot of other golfers who wouldn’t mind that, either.”
