Bradley is a huge Boston Red Sox fan and actually threw out the first pitch before last Tuesday's game against the Oakland Athletics at Fenway Park.
He's also paying tribute to Red Sox legend Carlton Fisk this week by sporting the No. 27 on his golf shoes. Fisk is actually Bradley's wife's uncle.
Check out the sweet shoes in the photo below:
Bradley received a tremendous ovation and chants of "Keegan! Keegan! Keegan!" as he walked up the fairway on the 18th hole Saturday. He was hoping for another memorable moment on that hole Sunday evening. A victory for Bradley would have been a tremendous Boston sports moment.
