HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -
A Biloxi native who has used his professional golf connections to help South Mississippi rebound from Hurricane Katrina is about to tee off on a new chapter in his life. Mickey Bradley is retiring after nearly 25 years as an official on the PGA Tour. As dozens of pro golfers are in our area for the Champions tour, he's helping raise money for charity.
The pro golfers said officials are the ones who make sure everything goes smoothly on the greens and they said Mickey Bradley is one of the best.
"I've known Mickey Bradley for a long long time," said Golfer Willy Wood. "He's been giving me good rulings out here on the PGA tour for 30 years."
Bradley along with family and friends cooked up jambalaya, pulled pork, and more for golfers participating in a pro am at Fallen Oak in Harrison County.
"We call it a round up," said Bradley. "It means a great deal to all of us and to help the community and help Habitat and try to feed everybody on the links."
The annual benefit for Habitat Humanity was born after Hurricane Katrina when Bradley's pro golfing friends approached him about helping storm victims.
Bradley said, "He asked what could we do to help the Coast and I said, 'Let's have a pro am.' And it evolved from that. We're very proud of that and now it's still the charity for the Champions Tour."
After 24 years, Bradley's last round as PGA tour official will be in December.
"It's very difficult to retire from your hobby. It meant meeting a lot of friends and people around the country and the world actually," Bradley said. "I've been to Korea, Malaysia, Canada, Mexico. So it's difficult to quit from all the people I've met."
Bradley said although he's retiring from his day job that keeps him out of town more than 30 weeks a year, he will continue stirring up good Southern cuisine for the pro am.
