Bradley wants repeat performance
Keegan Bradley admits he will prepare for the defence of his USPGA Championship title in exactly the same way as he did 12 months ago.
The 26-year-old pulled off a shock victory at the year's final major in 2011 in what was his first year on the PGA Tour.
He beat fellow American Jason Dufner in a play-off to cap an amazing end to the season stateside.
The Florida resident secured seven top-15 finishes during his inaugural season on the circuit, with two wins coming in the last five months of the campaign.
Victory in the four-man PGA Grand Slam of Golf in October was the icing on the cake for the Woodstock-born star and he has backed up that form with a triumph in last week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
He has enjoyed another solid year on tour and will head into Thursday's renewal at Kiawah Island full of confidence, and the man who won on his major debut last year is looking to replicate the preparation that saw him make history at the Atlanta Athletic Club.
"I'm trying to do the exact same stuff as last year," he said. "The biggest key is to keep everything constant, what I've always done, and I feel as though I'm doing that."
And Bradley admits that he is a different player at the end of the season to the one who tees off in January.
"About this time last year is when I really started to get it rolling," he added. "I went on a seven-month stretch of great golf. I love these golf courses at the end of the year. I love the atmosphere of major championships."
