Rookie wins US PGA Championship

12:14 pm on 15 August 2011

The American golfer Keegan Bradley has won his maiden major title after beating compatriot Jason Dufner in a thrilling three hole playoff at the U.S. PGA Championship.

The pair were tied on 8 under par after the final round before Bradley carded a one under par on final three playoff holes to win by one stroke in front of a raucous Atlanta crowd.

Making his victory even more remarkable was the fact the PGA tour rookie was making his very first major appearance and had to fight back from a triple bogey on the 15th to force the playoff and 25-year-old dedicated his victory to his dad.
