Steve Bradley enters his third season as an assistant coach at Florida. Bradley was a member of the UF golf team from 1997-1999 under Coach Alexander.
Bradley helped lead the Gators to their 10th-straight NCAA Championships to cap the 2009-10 season. The Gators posted two tournament wins and finished in the top-five in eight of their 13 tournaments. Under his tutelage, senior Tyson Alexander and redshirt junior Andres Echavarria both earned their first individual tournament wins of their career. The Gators were also successful in the classroom, as eight UF golfers were named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll, led by junior Bank Vonvanij, who was named the SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year for men's golf.
In his first year as an assistant coach at Florida, Bradley helped lead the Gators to the NCAA Championship for the ninth straight year after claiming the title at the NCAA Southwest Regional. The Gators had eight top-five finishes on the season, including three tournament wins. They defended their title at the Gator Invitational for the sixth-straight year and also won the inaugural Golden Ocala Collegiate.
Bradley, a former captain of the men's golf team at UF, transferred from Florida State in 1997 and spent two seasons with the Gators before graduating in 1999. He had two top-10 finishes during his senior year and helped lead the Gators to the Southeastern Conference Championship title in 1999. He was named a second-team All-SEC performer during his junior year in 1997-98. His best collegiate finish came as runner-up at the 1998 Morris Williams Intercollegiate.
Before transferring to UF, Bradley led Florida State with five top-20 finishes during his sophomore year. As an amateur, Bradley won the 1996 Florida State Amateur title and qualified for the 1994 U.S. Amateur.
He is originally from Ocala, where he was an All-State selection at Forest High School and led his team to the 1994 Florida State Championship.
