Michael Joseph Brady (April 15, 1887[1] – December 3, 1972) was an American professional golfer.


Brady was born in Brighton, Massachusetts, on April 15, 1887.[1]

Brady won nine PGA events between 1916 and 1926.[2] He lost in a three-way playoff to John McDermott in the 1911 U.S. Open. He lost to Walter Hagen in a celebrated playoff in the 1919 U.S. Open at the Brae Burn Country Club. Hagen promptly resigned his club pro job at Oakland Hills Country Club after winning and Oakland Hills promptly hired Brady. Brady subsequently won the 1922 Western Open at Oakland Hills.

Brady died in Dunedin, Florida, at the age of 85.[1]
