WATCH: Keegan Bradley and Miguel Angel Jimenez nearly come to blows

Powered by National Club Golfer


Tensions ran high between Keegan Bradley and Miguel Angel Jimenez during their third round match at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play with the pair squaring up to each other on the side of the fairway.

Their dead rubber match at TPC Hardings Park turned nasty after Bradley needed a drop from a cart path and Jimenez came over to check the legality.

Bradley’s caddie Steve “Pepsi” Hale then told Jimenez to mind his own business before the Spaniard told him to shut up.

Bradley took offence and stuck up for his bag man and still seemed wound up at the end of the match, which Jimenez won.

“You don’t tell my caddie to shut up,” Bradley was heard saying as the pair got in each other’s faces.

Speaking to the media afterwards, Bradley added: “I felt like he was being disrespectful not only to me but my caddie.

"I was kind of standing up for my boy here. I have nothing but respect for him. He's a great player out here. But I have to be able to stick up for myself when I feel something is wrong."

Jimenez said: "Whatever happened there is finished and is done. There is no point in talking about it."

There are reports the pair continued the argument into the locker room but either way, none of the parties involved will look back on the incident with much pride.
