Woodstock, VT -- Monday Keegan Bradley returned home to the Woodstock Country Club for the 3rd annual Keegan Bradley Charity Classic.

"Woodstock Country Club was my golfing start. "Bradley said before the tournament began. "They treated me so well. I used to come here after school every day and play. Play as many holes as I possibly could."

For the second straight year, Keegan and close friend on the PGA Tour Brendan Steele were on hand to give some tips to the fans.

"We enjoy a lot of the same things." Steele said. "We've just had a lot of good bonding moments that people never kind of understand. And therefore a lot of kind of jokes. Things that we have that have brought us together and made us really close."

So were Keegan's closest friends and family, including Keegan's aunt, six time LPGA Major Winner and World Golf Hall of Famer Pat Bradley.

The primary focus of the event is to raise money for the Vermont Cancer Center

"This is fantastic exposure, the great people of Vermont, to get a better understanding of what's happening in the state." Bradley said.

The Vermont Cancer Center isn't the only cause Keegan is trying to help this year. He's also trying to tackle another major issue here in Vermont.

"I was reading a Rolling Stones article about the Heroin epidemic." told the crowd. "So we're going to give a portion of the charitable money raised here today to try and help the state of Vermont."
