Keegan Bradley choked back tears today as he revealed details of his youth as a real life trailer park boy in Massachusetts and how it chiselled him into the fine upstanding Major Champion he is today.
Bradley spoke about his time in a 30 year old leaking rotting trailer with a ripped screen door while real life dramas starring disgusting uneducated depressing despots played out just outside the door.

“We had the obligatory clothes line outside stretching from the trailer to the wall where my Dad and me hung our socks and underpants after we washed them in the septic puddle where skinny framed pot bellied alcoholics pissed out whiskey and children whose parents never got out of bed swam. They were good times indeed, they moulded me into a winner,” Bradley said.
“People are very quick to condemn trailer park residents as the scum of the earth, dangerous to make eye contact with let alone to talk to. They expect gun shots at night, stabbings and shouts of ‘I’m a fucking kill you’ from foul mouthed degenerate pigs. And they would be right, it’s exactly like that.”

“It was a tough five days, but a happy five days”, chuckled Bradley. “Or maybe it was four days, it was a long time ago.”
