Keegan Bradley: By the Numbers

By winning the 93rd PGA Championship, Keegan Bradley earned his first major championship in his very first start in a major. The 25 year old took home $1,445,000.000, moved into fourth place in the Fed Ex Cup race, and bolted up to 29th in the world rankings.

He's now in a good position to win the $10 million dollar Fed Ex Cup Playoffs and can potentially either earn his way on or become a captain's choice for the Presidents Cup. 

With the win, he earns a lifetime exemption into the PGA Championship, a 5-year exemption into the Masters, the U.S. Open, and the British Open, as well as a 5-year exemption on the PGA Tour. 

He also gets to play against the year's three other major winners (Schwartzel, Mcllroy, Clarke), in the PGA Grand Slam tournament. 

In other words, his life just got a lot more awesome.
