Eight years after Ben Curtis became the first player since Francis Ouimet in 1913 to win on his debut appearance in a major, Keegan Bradley pulled off the same astonishing feat at the PGA Championship in 2011.
Five behind with three holes to play, the nephew of Pat Bradley - winner of six women's majors - stormed back to beat Jason Dufner in a play-off. It made him the first player to win a major with a long putter and led to a Ryder Cup debut where he won three times with Phil Mickelson.
Resumed the partnership in 2015 after a season in which he tied for fourth in both the US Open and WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, the event he won in 2012 with a closing 64. Also played for the United States alongside Mickelson at the 2013 Presidents Cup.
Came in as replacement for John Daly at The 147th Open, but two months later ended more than six years without a victory by beating Justin Rose in a play-off for the BMW Championship – part of the FedEx Cup play-off series – and by qualifying for the season-ending Tour Championship ensured his place at Royal Portrush.
