Bradley leads the running for Player of The Year
With Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year awarded in early December, all eyes are on the finale of the Tour Championship at East Lake on Sunday.

And one player is favourite to snaffle both prestigious awards.

Keegan Bradley is one of six players on the circuit with two victories this season, the others being Bubba Watson, Webb Simpson, Mark Wilson, Steve Stricker and Nick Watney.

The youngster from Woodstock, Vermont is the only one of them with a major title, the 2011 PGA Championship.

"You know, I think every player wants to win Player of the Year," said Bradley. "It would be amazing to me.

"Getting to the Tour Championship was a goal of mine at the start of the year, and . . . contending for the FedEx Cup, and then I guess Player of the Year, too, which is almost weird saying it."

Bradley, who turned 25 this year, has three other finishes in the top 10 this season, including a playoff victory over Ryan Palmer in the HP Byron Nelson Championship at the end of May.

And he certainly has some influential backers in the golfing world.

"(Bradley has) had arguably the best year for any US player," said Phil Mickelson, who has been lobbying Fred Couples to make Bradley a captain's pick for the Presidents Cup.

"I think he needs to be a pick if he doesn't get on it on his own."I think that Keegan has had a great year and has only been able to get points for this season and not last season. I think he deserves it for his play already."
