All that Bradley lacked was confidence. He shot a 63 at Riviera to take the lead after the first round of the '95 PGA but finished 54th. When he went to the Masters for the first time last year, he shot 12-over 156 to miss the cut by a mile. "Mentally, I've been a little lax," he admits. "It has frustrated me, especially coming down the stretch, because I know I can do better. It eats at you. There has to be a point when you say, 'Hey, don't be afraid anymore, just play' "
Judging by the way Bradley responded to his trip to golf hell on Sunday, there's a good chance he has finally passed that point.
