Report: Netflix convinced (?!) Keegan Bradley he made Ryder Cup team

Finding out you've not been selected for the US Ryder Cup team would have been a tough experience for a number of hopeful US players, but perhaps none of them experienced the dramatic highs and lows that Keegan Bradley did as he awaited his call from team captain Zach Johnson

Sitting down to chat with the Barstool Foreplay Podcast, Bradley, 37, revealed that moments before he received his call from Johnson, he received another call from Netflix, revealing they had a camera crew five minutes from his house and they wanted to come and film the moment he found out his Ryder Cup fate.

Understandably, Bradley believed this to be a good sign for his inclusion in the team. However, as he was about to find out, that couldn't have been further from the truth.

Discussing the experience, Bradley said:

"I got a text from Zach, and he said, 'Hey guys, I'm going to be calling everybody tomorrow morning', like I got another night now of sweating this out. I wake up very tired, and I get a call from Netflix, and they say, 'We got a camera crew five minutes from your house'. Why would they be sending a camera crew if I'm not going to be picked?
"It was the first time I let my brain think I did it. Why would they be bringing a camera crew to my house? And as soon as I picked up the phone, there was like a 'Hey Keegan...' you know, like one of those, and I looked over at my wife Jill to tell her it was a no. He was really nice, and then he hung up the phone."

Undoubtedly a challenging moment for Bradley, he also revealed that we will all soon be able to watch the entire episode play out when season two of Netflix's hit series Full Swing hits screens. 

He said: 

"You're all gonna see this, this is real life, no one's ever seen this call before."

With the Ryder Cup set to start in only a week's time, Bradley will be watching from his sofa at home but has already shared a heartfelt message with his fans on Instagram about the disappointment he felt not to be included in the team that will head out to the Marco Simone course in Rome. 

The 2022 PGA Championship winner has had an excellent season on the PGA Tour, winning both the ZOZO Championship and the Travelers, but sadly, that wasn't enough to earn him inclusion for the 2023 Ryder Cup after Johnson decided to use his captain's picks to select Sam Burns, Rickie Fowler, Brooks Koepka, Collin MorikawaJordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.
