Keegan Bradley and Jason Dufner are known to be good friends. How good? Well, good enough that Bradley turned around on his way to the airport in order to be on the 18th green to congratulate Dufner on winning the PGA Championship.

According to ESPN's Bob Harig, Bradley had already left Oak Hill and was on his way out of town before deciding to turn around to congratulate Dufner in person. He apparently even ran a red light on his way back to the course.

Fortunately, he made it in one piece and in time to greet Dufner as he was coming off the green via Kyle Porter of CBS Sports.

Bradley and Dufner have a history at the PGA Championship as they squared off in a playoff in the 2011 PGA with Bradley coming away with the victory. Dufner was the one hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy on Sunday and Bradley thought the feat was good enough to delay his trip to the airport.
