Break out the cowbell for this week’s Hooter’s tour winner
Monday, August 10, 2009
Time to break the cowbell out of retirement for Keegan Bradley, nephew of World Golf Hall of Fame member Pat Bradley.
Keegan cruised to a five stroke wire-to-wire victory at the Texas Honing Open to clinch his first career NGA/Hooters Tour win.
When Pat won her first professional event, the 1975 Colgate Far East Open, her mother, Kathleen, stepped out on the family’s back porch in Westford, Mass., and celebrated by clanging a Swiss cowbell.
Thus began a family tradition. She rang it after each victory, the last in 1991 when Pat won for the 30th time to qualify for the LPGA Hall of Fame.
The bell was retired and is part of an exhibit at the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, Fla.
