Keegan Hansen Bradley was born on June 7, 1986 (age 36 years) in Woodstock, Vermont, United States. He is the elder child of Mark Bradley, the head professional at the Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Club just outside Jackson, Wyoming. Growing up as an all-state ski racer in Woodstock, Vermont, Bradley decided as a teenager to pursue golf over skiing.
Bradley lived in Portsmouth, New Hampshire in 2001 and 2002 when his father was an assistant pro at Portsmouth Country Club. He then moved to Hopkinton, Massachusetts prior to his senior year at Hopkinton High School, where he won the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) Division 2 individual state championship in 2004. Hopkinton coach Dick Bliss later recalled that Bradley received the third-most attention of his players that season, and that “not many big-time college recruiters gave him much of a look.”
He began his higher education at St. John’s University and won nine collegiate events before graduating in 2008. However, Bradley’s aunt is former LPGA player and World Golf Hall of Fame member Pat Bradley. As a child, he attended some of her tournaments and he has called her an inspiration. He is a fan of Boston Red Sox baseball, Boston Celtics basketball, New England Patriots football and Boston Bruins hockey, and has said his dream golf foursome includes his father, Ben Hogan, and Tom Brady.
