Keegan Bradley splits with long-time caddie Steve ‘Pepsi’ Hale

Keegan Bradley and long-time caddie Steve "Pepsi" Hale have parted ways after a five-year relationship.

Golf Channel reported Tuesday that the duo split after Bradley missed the cut two weeks ago at the weather-shortened Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The pair had worked together for all three of Bradley's wins, including the 2011 PGA Championship, in which Bradley, who was making his first major appearance, became the first player to win a major with an anchored putting stroke.

According to the Golf Channel report, Bradley will work with caddie Chad Reynolds, who had been working with Nick Watney before a back injury put him on the shelf for the remainder of the season in February.

In 2016, Bradley has struggled making the transition away from the anchored putting stroke. He's dropped from 70th in the Official World Golf Ranking at the start of the year to 114th this week. He's 202nd on the PGA Tour in strokes gained putting. Bradley has missed seven of 11 cuts this season, with his best finish coming as a T-8 at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in November 2015.
