This one slipped by yesterday, but that’s primarily because Keegan Bradley hasn’t been in a featured group in a televised event for . . . two years? Keegan’s last win came in 2012 at the WGC Bridgestone, but I digress. The few times he was seen on camera, you may have noticed Bradley was wearing the shoes that he teased prior to his opening round.
It’s no secret that Keegan Bradley has been wearing Jordans for a long time, not before Jordans were cool because they’ve always been cool, but he’s the first one to wear them in a competitive golf setting! The significance of this pair, however, is the “45” on the side — if you squint you can see it.
Michael Jordan wore the number 45 after his return from a stint in minor league baseball, a stint that could have gone better. His best performance on the diamond was arguably during Space Jam. Considering the struggles that Keegan has had lately, maybe he should take a leave of absence to try his hand at another sport for a while. His Red Sox finished last in the AL East last year. Maybe he could give them a call, sort of follow in Jordan’s footsteps.
