There's a new member to the professional golf Major championship winner's club, and his name is Keegan Bradely. After defeating Jason Dufner in a three-hole playoff, Bradley was crowned the current king of the PGA Championship, the last Major championship of the PGA's season. Needless to say, Bradley is the talk of the sports world this morning.
While that's, excuse the pun, par for the course when it comes to first-time winners, Bradley has been taking his first Major celebration to the social media world--in this case, his Twitter account--and doing his best to share his joy with his newfound fans and followers. On this morning's episode of ESPN's Mike & Mike in the Morning radio show, Bradley indicated that, when the PGA Championship started, he had little over 3000 Twitter followers.
As of this moment, that number has grown to 28,550, and there's little doubt those numbers will steadily climb as Bradley continues his news circuit, which is going strong at the moment:

Of course, if he wants to get his Twitter follower numbers up to Tiger Woods-like areas, being more than a one-hit wonder in regards to Major championships would help.
Regardless is Bradley wins another Major or not, nobody is going to stop him from enjoying his current win, and, as indicated, he's sharing his joy on his Twitter account, posting multiple pictures of the Wanamaker Trophy in various positions of repose:

Bradley also makes sure to keep his trophy safe when traveling from station to station as his interview schedule is no doubt booked solid:
There's little doubt Bradley is feeling about as high the moon right now, but he won't let that euphoria potentially damage the new hardware he's carrying around with him. How would celebrate such a prestigious win, especially on the social media outlets? Mine would probably be so wild, the Manchester Police would have my picture--holding the Wanamaker Trophy, of course--listed on their Flickr page.
