It could be too little, too late – but Keegan Bradley’s 66 was a welcome sight nonetheless in an otherwise challenging week. Bradley finished 1 under, where he’d started with an opening-round 69 and good for T-18 as the leaders continued play. Here’s what he had to say after his round Sunday.

On what he was thinking after standing 6 under through 13 holes:
I wanted to beat’s Duf’s course record for sure.
On 14, I didn’t hit that bad of a drive and it hit the tree and kicked it 60 yards right. Could have just as easily kicked it left and been right in front of the green. But that’s how it goes.
I’m proud of the way I played today. I’ve played the British Open and PGA good on the weekends two in the row, so I’m happy.
Asked if he feels that he is “on the right path heading to the FedExCup:”
KEEGAN BRADLEY: Yeah, I do. I feel great. I haven’t won this year, so I would love to get one before the year is over. I’ve got a bunch more chances a bunch of really big tournaments to come. This is going to be a good help going into the playoffs.
On his game since winning this tournament in 2011:
I feel like I’ve validated that win. Not that I feel like I needed to, but I feel like my career has steadily been rising. And you know, I hope to continue to contend in majors for forever hopefully.
On his apparel:
I try to wear my St. John’s colors. I try to wear red and white.
On the day’s final pairing of Jim Furyk and Jason Dufner:
They are both super competitive. I feel like a lot of people think they are quiet guys, but they are very vocal, especially Duf. I think that they are both super intense.
People that you really on Sundays, that wouldn’t be your first choice to go up against.
