Thanks to Bradley win, William McGirt gets into PGA Championship

If William McGirt had made his par putt on the 72nd hole at the RBC Canadian Open, he would have been in the field at the PGA Championship.

Instead, he was first alternate - that is, until Keegan Bradley made his par putt on the 72nd hole at Firestone C.C. on Sunday.

The PGA of America had been holding two places in the 156-player field for this week's PGA Championship for the winners of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and Reno-Tahoe Open. With Keegan Bradley winning the former by a shot over Jim Furyk, that open spot was no longer necessary. Bradley is the defending champion at Kiawah Island.

That meant McGirt, who missed out on an automatic spot by $11 based on PGA Tour money earned in the last year, is in the field.
