Master rookie Bradley is perfect so far at majors

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Keegan Bradley doesn't get all the fuss about being a Masters rookie.

After all, he has a perfect record in the majors.

Bradley became only the third player in at least 100 years to win a major in his first try at last year's PGA Championship, and says not being familiar with the course actually helped him at the Atlanta Athletic Club. His length off the tee is sure to be an asset when the Masters begins Thursday. Augusta National plays every inch of its 7,435 yards and then some, and it's nearly impossible to contend here, let alone win, without being able to boom it up off the tee.

Only three rookies have won the Masters, and none since Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979.
