Keegan Bradley sick of being called cheat

Although the PGA Tour has come out against the proposed belly putter ban, one of the club's most visible proponents 2011 US PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley is still suffering for his art.

The 26-year-old from Woodstock, Vermont, said he is sick of being called  a "cheat" by spectators on the course.

"I take great offence to people calling me a cheater. I think that's unbelievable," he told reporters ahead of the Honda Classic.

"It's been pretty difficult especially lately. I'm being called a cheater more than ever by fans, by some writers.

"I can't imagine how people can say that to me or to anybody out here. I'm sick of it to be honest."

At least he know he has the support of the PGA Tour after Tim Finchem provided a statement against the USGA's proposed ruling against long putters.

"We hold the USGA in highest regard as a key part of the game of golf," Finchem said. "We don't attempt to denigrate that position in any way whatsoever. It's just on this issue, we think if they were to move forward they would be making a mistake."

Unsurprisingly Bradley has reacted positively to the actions so far of the PGA, despite the potential for a schism between the various organizing bodies that such a move could cause.

Bradley said: "I'm very proud and it makes me feel good that my tour, the tour I play on, has my back."
