Bradley chasing Puerto Rico Open title



Michael Bradley is trying to keep it simple in his bid to win the Puerto Rico Open for the third time in four years.

"I just hope I play well and make some putts," Bradley said Wednesday. "That's what it boils down to. If you're hitting it where you're aiming and making putts, and you're not beating yourself and making mental mistakes, then hopefully come Sunday, you will have a chance. I'm trying to eliminate stupid mistakes."

Last year at windy Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico, Bradley took advantage of Troy Matteson's short par miss on the first hole of a playoff.

"The course is playing long. It's a little wet, not when you're on the fairway, but you're not getting a lot of roll, so it's playing long," Bradley said. "Rough is up this year over years past, greens are slower than they have been, but they're in good shape."

Ryo Ishikawa, the 20-year-old Japanese star, also is in the field along with Lucas Glover, Argentina's Angel Cabrera, Venezuela's Jhonattan Vegas and 2010 US Amateur champion Peter Uihlein.

The wind got Ishikawa's attention Wednesday in the pro-am.

"The wind can be strong, so I have to be patient," Ishikawa said. "Playing in Japan, I haven't faced constant, strong wind conditions. In Japan only a limited area gets this kind of wind, so I'm not used to the strong, consistent wind like over here. The courses are kind of narrow and there are up and downs, so it is quite different. Although, I mentioned it is comfortable playing here, it is dangerous to feel too comfortable, so I like to keep my edge and keep the appropriate attention on the course."

Former US Open champion Glover is making his first start of the season after spraining a ligament in his right knee on December 31 during a paddle boarding accident.
