Those who will follow Keegan Bradley around TPC Boston during Friday's opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship will likely have a pretty good chance of seeing another local athletic hero, too. That'd be Bruins winger Shawn Thornton.

Those who can't be in Norton will have to settle for seeing Bradley's round through Thornton's eyes.

When the Hopkinton High graduate begins his round at 12:58 on Friday afternoon -- as part of an excellent group that also includes Matt Kuchar and Hunter Mahan, giving it three of the top 20 players in the FedEx Cup standings -- Thornton will be trailing the group and tweeting his observations through the PGA Tour's official Twitter account.

Golf and hockey would seem to be kindred sports spirits, and last week at The Barclays Tournament, the PGA sent New York Islanders Matt Moulson and Kyle Okposo between the ropes at Bethpage to follow and reports on Rickie Fowler's third-round performance. Check out the video below (specifically at about the two-minute mark) to hear a little bit about that experience for the two talented scorers.

Then check back here later today, when we'll share some of Thornton's best work.

UPDATE: A look at the day, through Thornton's highlights:

Thanks to the aforementioned run of birdies, Bradley finished his round at even par, nine shots off the lead.
