Colonial’s strength is its twists and turns and on Friday Keegan Bradley properly navigated his way around the course, using four birdies after the turn to shoot a 66 that left him in an advantageous spot

“You have to think a little bit more. Like the second hole is an example. It’s short, hitting driver, you can err on that left side in the rough, at least you can hit the green,” Bradley said. “So you kind of, when you get on the tee, you have to think of those things. The right rough you can’t hit the green. I don’t know, it’s just you got to think your way around here.”

Bradley has turned things around from a stretch earlier this year in which he missed the cut in three of four starts. The New England native has reached the weekend in each of his last four starts and has posted three top-25 finishes.

With his play on Friday, there’s no reason to think the recent trend will be broken.

“I played just great,” he said. “I had that section sort at the middle where I wasn’t hitting any greens, but I was really hitting nice shots. Out here in the wind you can hit great shots and not hit the greens, they’re just little, but I was really proud of the way I played.”
