Keegan Bradley is a Srixon man when it comes to the bulk of his golf clubs. But he experiments near the top. Equipment editor James Savage takes a look
Keegan Bradley has been a Cleveland-Srixon player since turning pro in 2008. He captured his maiden major title with a Cleveland Launcher Ultralite and CG7 irons back in 2011.
At the top-end of his bag, the American does have a personal preference with the Taylormade M2 driver. Originally the PGA Tour regular used the Srixon Z545 but then switched to the 2016 Taylormade M1, before subbing that for the sister M2 model last season.
His hybrid has been the focus for change over recent years too, trying out Ping, Cleveland and Taylormade in 2018 he’s settled on a 2016 version of the Callaway Apex hybrid.
Bradley still opts to use four-year-old irons, gaming the Z745 and Z945 which were released in 2014.
During Bradley’s rookie season on the PGA Tour, where he captured the 2011 PGA Championship, he put his faith in an Odyssey putter – a trend he still keeps today, rolling them in with aprototype Odyssey Works Versa #1.
Having been a player plagued by the putter anchoring ban over recent years, this week at Aronimink he ranked first for Strokes Gained: Putting.
The two-time Ryder Cup star was snapped up by apparel brand Travis Matthew in Autumn 2014, which also boasts the strong US roster of Luke List, Chris Kirk and Charley Hoffman.
Bradley’s most outlandish piece of kit? His shoes. The Nike Air Jordan kicks are his favourite footwear to don on the course.
