2012 PGA Championship Interview Transcript -- Keegan Bradley

KEEGAN BRADLEY:  It feels good.  I think it was a pretty good defense, when all is said and done.

Q.  The way the course was set up throughout the week, was this a fair test for you guys, maybe excluding Friday?

KEEGAN BRADLEY:  Yeah, I think it was.  Friday they didn't have control of that wind, so that was the toughest round of golf I've ever played.  I think the course was set up very well every single day.  I think the PGA should be proud.

Q.  Phil mentioned the difficulty for the fans, not just walking the course but to get here.  Excluding this, could this be a rotation for a major and the PGA Championship down the road because it was a fair test for a championship?

KEEGAN BRADLEY:  Yeah, I mean, it's a tough tournament in general for I think everybody, but I think every once in a while it's a great spot with weather like this.  This is very nice.

Q.  Obviously the Playoffs and the Ryder Cup are coming up.  What do you take from this week?

KEEGAN BRADLEY:  I'm playing good golf.  I didn't putt very well all week.  If I had putted decent I think I would have been up there.  But very, very proud of myself, especially shooting 77 in the second round.  I battled back, bogeyed the first hole today.  I felt very tired today for the first time.  So I'm very proud.

Q.  Speaking of Ryder Cup, did you watch it growing up?

KEEGAN BRADLEY:  Yeah, I went to the '99 Ryder Cup.  Greatest sporting event I've ever been to, so I'm really looking forward to it.

Q.  (Inaudible.)
KEEGAN BRADLEY:  No, that was No. 1, no doubt.

Q.  What does the Ryder Cup mean to you in general?

KEEGAN BRADLEY:  Ryder Cup means everything.  It's going to be a real challenge for me that week to stay calm and not get too excited.  It's a great event.  I can't wait to play.

Q.  Are you excited that it's here in the States?

KEEGAN BRADLEY:  Yeah, I think that's going to be great.  I think we've got one of the best teams in a while.  I think a lot of really good guys, we're all very close.  I think it's going to be a good match.

Q.  What do you know about Medinah in general, that course?

KEEGAN BRADLEY:  I don't know much.  I've got to go play a few practice rounds.  I'll get there early and get some scouting down.

Q.  Do you like the parkland setup and the doglegs?

KEEGAN BRADLEY:  Yeah, sure.  I love everything.
