Bradley grinds his way to victory

Miami, Florida, 8th March 1998 - Michael Bradley earned his second career PGA Tour victory Sunday, carding a 1-under-par 71 to take a one-stroke victory over John Huston and Billy Mayfair in the $2 million Doral-Ryder Open at the Doral Golf Resort & Spa in Miami.

The 31-year-old Bradley's 10-under 278 was good enough for the $360,000 prize and his first PGA Tour victory since the 1996 Buick Challenge.

Bradley, battling back problems since the start of the year, enjoyed a two-stroke advantage over Stewart Cink after the third round and opened the lead up to three strokes over a pack of five golfers when he completed No. 7 at 10-under.

Mayfair, who beat Tiger Woods in a playoff to win last week's Nissan Open, stormed to a one-stroke lead over Huston and Bradley when he stood at 10-under through No. 15, but could not hold on. He shot a 3-under 69 to finish the final round at 9-under 279.

Huston, the winner at Doral four years ago, posted a 4-under 67. Huston won at the Hawaiian Open three weeks ago, easily beating out Tom Watson by seven strokes.

Woods -- still seeking his first PGA Tour victory of the year -- struggled to a 73 to finish in a six-way tie for ninth place at 5-under 283. He started the day tied with Mayfair and Mike Brisky at 6-under.

Ray Floyd, the Senior PGA Tour player who redesigned the course for last year's tournament and who won the at Doral in 1980, 1981 and 1992, carded a 73 to finish at 3-under 285.

The par-72 Doral Golf Resort & Spa course measures 6,939 yards.
