Michael John Bradley (born July 17, 1966) is an American professional golfer.<br />
Bradley was born in Largo, Florida. He attended Oklahoma State University and turned professional in 1988.<br />
After turning professional, Bradley joined the Canadian Tour. He won the 1989 Ontario Open and the 1990 Quebec Open. He also shot a 59 in an event in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.<br />
Bradley earned his PGA Tour card through qualifying school in 1992 and played full-time from 1993 to 2000. He won the 1996 Buick Challenge and the 1998 Doral-Ryder Open. 1996 was his best year on the PGA Tour, where he finished in 20th on the money list while recording a win and a runner-up finish. In 1995, he had a notable PGA Championship, becoming one of the few players ever to shoot 63 in the first round of a major; however, Bradley's hot streak then tailed off and he was not among the championship's leaders by Sunday. He then split his playing time between the PGA Tour and the Nationwide Tour. In 2009, he won his third PGA Tour event at the Puerto Rico Open. This gave him a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour, an exemption he extended when he repeated his win at the same event in 2011. After 2013, Bradley could not produce favorable results and played a limited PGA Tour schedule out of the Past Champions category.
