BARRINGTON, R.I. (WPRI) — Jon Curran and Keegan Bradley have won the 2015 CVS Health Charity Classic. The 17th Annual CVS Health Charity Classic finished up Tuesday after another successful three days of charitable golf.
Curran and Bradley finished the day 31 in, 21 strokes under par shooting a total score of 121 for the tournament. Keegan Bradley and Jon Curran each took home $150,000 of the purse, with second place pairing Lexi Thompson and Harris English taking home $100,000 each. The total purse is worth $1,500,000. Keegan Bradley played for the City Year Providence charity and Jon Curran played for Tides Family Services.
Keegan Bradley used a hot putter while playing partner Jon Curran fed off the energy created by family and friends in attendance as the duo from New England cruised to their first CVS Health Charity Classic championship. Bradley and Curran outlasted Harris English and Lexi Thompson for the two stroke (-21) victory.
“I haven’t won any tournament in two and a half years” Bradley joked afterward “so I’ll take any win I can get.”
Putting a damper on a great day of golf was the passing of the father of J.B. Holmes’ caddie. Upon receiving word, Holmes and his caddie withdrew immediately from the tournament. Holmes’ playing partner, Hunter Mahan, completed the round as a solo and finished the tournament at fifteen under par.

PGA golfer Billy Horschel said that co-hosts Brad Faxon and Billy Andrade have done a phenomenal job putting the event together, like they have in years past.
“I would never turn this thing down,” said Billy Horschel, “if you turn it down there’s something wrong with you. I thoroughly enjoy coming here every year, it’s a great event. I don’t care if I’m playing this week or if it’s my off week. I’m going to make sure I’m here every time.”
