Bradley leads FedEx Cup Finale

Keegan Bradley is atop the leader board once more in Atlanta.

Only this time it’s the FedEx Cup finale, not the PGA Championship.

Back in the region where he achieved his greatest victory to date, the 25-year-old shot a 6-under 64 to lead by two in the Tour Championship.

Breathing ferociously down the back of his neck is a familiar opponent, Jason Dufner, who was runner up in Bradley’s maiden major at Atlanta Athletic Club last month.

Tied for second along with Chez Reavie and world number one Luke Donald on 66, trailing Bradley will bring back some uncomfortable memories for Dufner.

"Maybe he's having some of the same feelings - very comfortable on this type of golf course ... with the conditions maybe a little more severe at Atlanta Athletic Club off the tee," Dufner said.

"But he's having a good day. Hopefully, we'll be paired tomorrow. That will be a little interesting, I guess. Maybe some thoughts here or there will come back and forth."

Webb Simpson, No. 1 in the FedEx Cup, bogeyed the last hole for a 69.

Of the top five players in the FedEx Cup - all of whom only need to win to collect the $10 million - Dustin Johnson (No. 2) was the only player not to break par. He shot 70.

While Bradley himself is a long shot to win the FedEx Cup outright – particularly with Donald playing well – the Presidents Cup is looming large on the youngster’s horizons.

"The cliche is to say that I'm not thinking about it, but literally probably every third hole - or maybe even less - it pops into my mind," Bradley said.

"I really want to be on the team, but I want to earn my way onto the team, just like I'm going to have to. If the captain and assistant captains think I've done enough to get on the team, they're going to pick me.

"And if they don't, that's totally fair, too."
