An Interview With: PHIL MICKELSON and KEEGAN BRADLEY
Q. Tell us about that shot.
PHIL MICKELSON: Just hit a solid, penetrating iron shot through the air and that baby was all over the flagstick, and I was really glad to see it come down the right yardage. It looked good in the air but until you see it land, you just never know.
Q. The reaction you had was unbelievable; foursomes, four ball, are you guys a better foursomes or four ball team?
KEEGAN BRADLEY: I think we are good in both. I love playing with him. That last shot just showed why Phil Mickelson is a Hall of Famer.
Q. Do you have any energy left?
KEEGAN BRADLEY: Oh, baby, I wish I could go 36 more.
Q. What was it like to close out a match like that and get that reaction?
PHIL MICKELSON: It's awesome, and right here on the 17th, it was incredible. We played so well, all day. We've had so much fun, and it's what has brought our best golf out, and to close it out with that shot, it feels really obviously spectacular.
This is one of the most emotional days playing in a Ryder Cup that we'll ever have. It gets emotion out of every player, good or bad, and this has been one of the biggest highs that we've had. I just love playing with Keegan. He's just played so good all day and it's just kept me up the whole time. It's been awesome.
Q. Your first time in The Ryder Cup, this morning you played a pair in foursomes that's never been beater in foursomes, and today you played the world No. 1 and one of the best grinders The European Team have.
KEEGAN BRADLEY: I'm just having such a blast playing with Phil. That was the best shot I've ever seen in my entire life. I'm just happy to be a part of it.
Q. You've played nine Ryder Cups, more than any other American, had a lot of partners. How special is this one?
PHIL MICKELSON: It's awesome. His energy is so positive, it's so good. This morning, you know, watching him drive it and be so far up and in the fairway, it's just ultimately going to wear you down after a while because we are hitting such short irons into these greens from the middle of the fairway, that his driver and his putter is off the charts. I mean, I just love watching him roll it, the way he greens the greens has been very helpful for me. Like I say, we've had a lot of fun and that brings our best golf out.
Q. You seem to be an adrenaline junkie and you play brilliantly under pressure. Tell us what you feel. Do you feel inspired by this sort of situation?
KEEGAN BRADLEY: Yeah, I just love every second of it. And being able to walk down the fairway with Phil and do this is a dream come true. It's another moment in my life that I can't believe I'm a part of.
Q. How was your day?
KEEGAN BRADLEY: It could be the best day of my life. I wish I could play more of these events.
Q. You looked young out there?
PHIL MICKELSON: I felt young and it felt great. I love playing with Keegan. I would say to him a couple of times, I need a little pep talk, and he would give me something, get me boosted right up and I would end up hitting a good shot. To finish it like this just felt so good.
