Keegan Bradley wearing Michael Jordan 'Jumpman' golf shoes
Keegan Bradley is rocking a pair of Presidents Cup-themed Jumpman golf shoes at Muirfield Village this week courtesy of friend and "mental coach" Michael Jordan.
"I'm excited to wear his shoes and be part of [Michael Jordan's] brand," Bradley told reporters following Wednesday's practice round. "Just wearing these shoes makes me a little bit cockier, a little more ready to win." The NY Daily News reported in March that Bradley had enlisted the help of the hoops legend to help him rediscover the attitude that, Jordan believes, fuels Bradley's success.
"He just wanted me to be more cocky out there, more aggressive and I’m learning through him the mental side of what he was thinking and it’s a big help to me," said Bradley. "It’s a really good thing to have, somebody like that to be able to text and reach out to. He’s very approachable, very willing to give me information and help me out, which is really cool."
Bradley will once again team up with Phil Mickelson to take on Internationals Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel in Thursday's four-ball matches. For more news that golfers everywhere are talking about, follow @si_golf on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and subscribe to our YouTube video channel.
