Bradbury making his mark

Yorkshire’s Dan Bradbury’s continues to make his mark in the ultra-competitive world of US college golf.

Wakefield Golf Club member Bradbury’s latest win came in the Argonaut Invitational at Pensacola Country Club in Florida. Rounds of 67,68 and 71 saw Bradbury triumph by two shots and make a welcome return to the winners’ circle after his college career was put on hold by the coronavirus pandemic. 

He is a student at the Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee, where he is in his final year of a degree in Business Management. Last year he become the most decorated golfer in the history of the college after being named the South Atlantic Conference Golfer of the Year, making the list of finalists in the Jack Nicklaus Golfer of the Year and being named to the Patriot All-American team.

He was also Wakefield’s first ever competitor in the US Amateur Championship in August last year when he played in the event at Bandon Dunes, shooting a last round 76 to finish at 7 over par for the week.

It was an adventure that he will not forget.” It was a really great experience to be involved with a tournament that has that deep-rooted history. I've played all the major amateur events back in England and none of those could compare to this one," Bradbury said. "Experience wise, it's brilliant, it's the top."
