Keegan Bradley has more than 267,000 Twitter followers, a ton of fans from his native New England, and now the 2011 PGA champion has a little guy running around with his name.

No, the 27-year-old Bradley and girlfriend Jillian Stacey aren’t proud new papa and mama of a bouncing baby boy, but one of his legion of tweeps, Craig King, and his wife named their new son after the pride of Woodstock, Vt.

@ckingy tweeted last week about the arrival of the family's new bundle of joy:

@Keegan_Bradley can I get a re-tweet for my son Keegan Bradley King? Born today at 1.23 am uk time”

Seems Mr. and Ms. super fan were up in the air about what to name the youngest member of the King clan, when suddenly it came to them.

“We couldn't decide on a name and I was watching golf and the missus seen Keegan and liked the name,” the mister tweeted.

Why not? If the kid “Dufners” before he walks, though, there might be cause for concern.
