Keegan Bradley, whose penchant for tweeting his boosterism for all Boston sports teams is legend among his PGA Tour brethren, took to Twitter to congratulate his revered Red Sox after they won the World Series in six games by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 on Wednesday night.

Congrats to the @RedSox! World Series champs #bostonstrong!!!
The New England native, who is playing golf far from home this week, at the WGC-HSBC Champions in China, was not alone among his colleagues in sharing his glee about the Sox claiming their third world championship title in the last 10 years (suck on that, Yankees).
Former world No. 1 Luke Donald and Billy Horschel were among the well-wishers who observed how much the victory meant to players and fans after the team took it upon itself to help heal the psychic wounds of the City of Boston following the Boston Marathon terror bombings in April.
Luke Donald @LukeDonald 31 Oct:
Congrats to Boston, seems very apt that they would win the World Series this year.
Billy Horschel @BillyHo_Golf 31 Oct:
Congrats to the Red Sox Nation! And to the city of Boston! Much deserved! #hellyeah

Hell yeah!!! Congrats @MikeNapoli25 and @RedSox on the World Series!!!
James Hahn took a contrarian view, which PGA professional Mark Cunningham suggested may make the Oakland Athletics fan persona non grata at next year’s Deutsche Bank Championship, the Labor Day tourney contested just a few miles from Fenway Park in Norton, Mass.

Can't stand watching Boston win another World Series. Changing channel to Family Feud. Someone tweet me if something crazy happens.
