Keegan Bradley on Short Putter: 'It's a Good Surprise'

Keegan Bradley
JORDAN SPIETH DEMOLISHED THE FIELD in the Hero World Challenge, making it two wins in two weeks in two hemispheres. Spieth posted an insane 26-under total to win by 10 strokes.

Meanwhile, 2011 PGA champion Keegan Bradley swapped out his belly putter for a 40-inch Scotty Cameron Futura X5 Dual Balance putter. The anchoring ban goes into effect in about a year, so Bradley is getting ready for the inevitable.

Judging from last week at Isleworth, everything might work out just fine with Bradley's switch to a conventional putter. Bradley recorded 24 birdies on "tough" greens to shoot 16 under and finish tied for third.

"This was one of the biggest tournaments of my career ... to show myself that that putter is not an issue," Bradley said. "Actually, it was probably the best I’ve putted all year. It’s a good surprise."

As well as he putted, Bradley couldn't keep up with a blazing hot Jordan Spieth.

"I wanted to go over there and tackle him, break his putter," Bradley said after Spieth sank an eagle putt on Sunday.

"He was pretty much unbeatable this week."
