ATLANTA: Unheralded Keegan Bradley made an unforgettable comeback to win the 93rd PGA Championship, rallying from five strokes behind with three holes to play to win in his major debut. The US PGA Tour rookie caught leader Jason Dufner after 72 holes and then beat his American compatriot in a three-hole aggregate playoff to capture the Wanamaker Trophy and win the $1.44 million top prize at Atlanta Athletic Club. “It feels unbelievable,” said Bradley, who will jump from 108th to 29th in the rankings. “It seems like a dream and I’m afraid I’m going to wake up in the next five minutes and it’s not going to be real.” Denmark’s Anders Hansen fired the day’s low round, a 66, to finish third on 273.
