Keegan Bradley Apologizes
By mustang6560 on 2/21/12
Keegan Bradley wants to put the spitting incident behind him.
@Keegan_Bradley tweeted: "Id like to apologize for my spitting It's like a reflex,I don’t even know I’m doing it, but it's a longtime habit I’ve got to try to conquer"Aw, how special - Keegan's first controversial moment and subsequent Twitter apology as a PGA Tour player. They grow up so fast these days (sigh). I remember when he was just a rookie...
During the final round of the Northern Trust Open, Keegan managed to anger a few people for spitting profusely on the course. I only caught the tail end of the golf tournament Sunday so I didn't notice Keegan spewing human saliva like a sprinkler head. Hopefully the issue is settled now.

How did you only catch the tail end and not see it? From the time he tee'd off on 18 to the finish on #10 green he spit enough to fill a nalgene bottle. Most of the time too the camera was right on his face and he was spewing these nasty phlegm wads. It was gross. He spit like 7 times in the bunker alone.

No lung biscuits through the green.
Sounds like someone got busted by an agent, sponsors, PGAT brass or mom and pop at the least. I hope he can curb the habit without crippling his golf game. It's not nice to watch someone struggle through tics. I saw it and the spitting was pretty bad. It was like what you'd see in the MLB, only not as cool or nonchalant. Keegan looked addled and barely in control of his nerves not to mention his spitballs, he almost drooled on himself a couple times.
Duke of Hazards says:
Yeah, that guy was twitchy as all hell, bundle of nerves. My wife did get a kick out of him lining up his putts with the 'stink-eye', though.
that is a bad habit of mine. hockin lugeys all day playa! lol
Sure, it looked awful, but who cares? Just keep it off the green and out of the hole. I love that evil eye he does.
Didn't see it, but as long as it's not on the greens I'm not sure I see the problem. Tiger got criticized a while back for the same thing but he was doing it on the greens.
Kurt the Knife says:
I guess if you must because of some disease or disgusting habit. If ur off the green its unlikely ur phlegmon an my shoes are gonna coincide the further away from the green we are.
Just remember we're all trying to converge on the same 4.25". Keep the greens clean of ur chunks.
I thought he must have a mouth full of sunflower seeds, there was so much coming out his mouth. Gotta love HD TV.
People really care about this? Really??? Obviously if he was forced to apologize...someone cared enough to make it an issue. But, really, people care about this trivial stuff?
It never bothers me but he did it so much and it was part of his pre-shot routine. Being severely hungover and wanting to puke all day didn't help!
Reminds me of the old joke, I won't bore you with the details, but the punch line was. The Japanese guy drops his pants and squats and says "Hold on a sec I've got a FAX coming in".
Haven't logged on here in long time but had to chime in. Watching him was incredibly painful. He also should have been flagged for speed of play, he approached, set up, then then stepped away about 4 times per shot. Then the excessive practice swings starting out with a full swing finally (about 30 swings later) down to a chip-practice swing.. it just was too much for me.
Can't take away that he is incredibly long off the tee and a great golfer. The 'tics' just got to me..
