Bubba Watson signed for a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the Northern Trust Open and is inside the top 10 at 4-under 209 with 18 holes remaining.
The defending champion circled four birdies and squared three bogeys on a difficult day for scoring at Riviera Country Club. He took advantage of the true birdies holes, with three of his birdies coming on the only three par 5s and the other birdie falling at the short par-4 10th. With rain in the forecast for Sunday, it might not take an extremely low number for him to walk away with the title. Feb 21 - 5:48 PM

Defending champion Bubba Watson added a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in his second round of the Northern Trust Open to post 3-under 139 at the break.

Watson found only five (of 14) fairways for the second consecutive round, but he landed four more greens in regulation (12). And while he equaled his three par breakers and two bogeys form the opener, he went one lower on the par-5 first hole today and converted an eagle try from 42'5". He chased it with a birdie roll from 29'2" at the par-4 second. At the time he signed his card, he sat T10 on a bunched leaderboard.

Bubba Watson opened his title defense of the Northern Trust Open with a 1-under-par 35-35=70.

Kudos to the lefty for keeping his head down today. He split only five (of 14) fairways and hit just eight greens in regulation, but limited the damage to two bogeys while picking off three birdies. He opened with a tap-in 4 at the par-5 first hole and walked off with a pured approach from 168 yards to 52 inches at the par-4 18th, but his most impressive birdie occurred at the par-4 10th, the hole that you either love or hate. He sprayed his drive well left of the hole and even the cart path, but pitched to 30'5" and drilled home the birdie. Watson sits just four strokes back of the fivesome atop the leaderboard.

Bubba Watson went on a weekend birdie barrage at last year's Northern Trust Open to secure the hardware and returns for another look this week.

The lefty was middling through 36 holes before posting consecutive rounds of 7-under 64 over the weekend. He had three top 20s at the event prior to winning last season, so the layout certainly tickles his fancy. Watson has started the new campaign with three top 10s and should be a feature of fantasy lineups regardless of format.

Bubba Watson conjured up a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and is the clubhouse leader at 14-under 270.

Watson was hot early in his round at TPC Scottsdale, following up an 18'10" birdie on the par-4 second hole with birdies on the third and fourth holes. He closed out his front nine with a 32'9" birdie on the par-4 ninth. The magic didn't stop there, as he holed out for birdie from a greenside bunker on the par-3 12th before adding a sixth and final birdie on the par-5 13th. He will now sit back and watch the action to see if his work was good enough for a spot in a playoff, or an outright win.
Feb 1 - 5:07 PM

Bubba Watson could only muster a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and is hanging on to a spot inside the top 10 at 8-under 205.

Watson spread three birdies across his scorecard at TPC Scottsdale, with his lone bogey coming at the par-5 15th after a series of unforced errors. He hit just half of his greens in regulation and never really did anything to mount a charge. He will need to go low in the finale if he is to walk away with the title.
Jan 31 - 5:34 PM

Bubba Watson turned in an even-par 35-36=71 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and remains at 6-under 136.

Watson's lap around TPC Scottsdale began on the back nine. It featured just two birdies, both from inside of three feet, and was balanced by two bogeys. With the weather being cold and wet, it was the type of day where a guy near the top of the leaderboard just didn't want to shoot himself out of the tournament. Mission accomplished.
Jan 30 - 2:42 PM

Bubba Watson lit up TPC Scottsdale for a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in the opening round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to join Keegan Bradley in the clubhouse lead.

Watson traded a bogey on the par-4 second hole for an eagle from 8'5" on the par-5 third hole on the front nine, with seven pars filling in the other seven blanks. He caught fire on the inward nine, with his five birdies all falling from inside of 11 feet while securing four pars on the other holes. There's no doubt that Bubba is known as a bomber, but he was very accurate in the opener. He split 12 of 14 fairways and landed 12 GIR. Considered by many to be a favorite this week, he has not let gamers down.

Bubba Watson enters this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open as one of the favorites to contend for the title.

In 30 rounds at TPC Scottsdale, Watson has never posted a score above par. Two of his last three trips have resulted in top-five finishes, including a T2 last year. He has not played since his 10th-place finish in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, but one has to look no further than his win in the WGC-HSBC Champions to understand his capabilities.
Jan 28 - 8:56 PM

Bubba Watson turned in a 3-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to steal a top-10 finish at 15-under 277.

It was a week of what could have been for Bubba, as he never really managed to throw his name into the hat of true contention. Monday's final lap around The Plantation Course at Kapalua featured five birdies and two bogeys, with none of the birdies falling from longer than eight feet. He was quite consistent, as none of his rounds were lower than 68 or higher than 70.
Jan 12 - 8:02 PM

Bubba Watson fired a 5-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and reaches the 54-hole mark at 12-under 207.

Watson picked up four birdies without a blemish on the front nine at The Plantation Course at Kapalua. Two of those were tap ins on the par 5s, while the others were a 16'6" effort on the par-4 third and an 18'2" highlight on the par-4 fourth. His lone blemish was a bogey on the par-3 11th, but he bounced back with birdies on the par-5 15th and par-4 17th holes. It will likely take something special for him in the final round if he is to contend for a win, but a top-10 finish looks very much in the cards.
Jan 11 - 8:24 PM

Bubba Watson tied for fourth in his most recent venture to The Plantation Course at Kapalua and returns to the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to begin 2015.

He locked up his spot in the tournament with his second victory in the Masters, but his win in the WGC-HSBC Champions would have done the trick as well. Watson has been busy of late, cracking the top 25 in his last three starts of 2014 in the Mitsui Sumitomo VISA Taiheiyo Masters 2014, Hero World Challenge and Thailand Golf Championship. In addition to the aforementioned T4, he showed a steady progression with a T25 in 2011 and a T18 in 2012. Expect him to be a factor this week.
Jan 6 - 8:18 PM

With a long-range birdie conversion on the first playoff hole, Bubba Watson emerged with victory at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

This was Bubba Golf at its finest. Watson played the last five holes of regulation in even par, but it included a double bogey at the par-3 17th hole where he was distracted by a photographer off the tee. After piping his drive at the par-5 18th, his second found a bunker left of the green. From there, the lefty holed the blast for an eagle and a 2-under-par 33-37=70. Shortly thereafter, Tim Clark would join his playing partner at 11-under 277 to force sudden death. Back at 18, Watson played the hole identically, with a long drive into the heart of the fairway and an approach into the same bunker. His poor escape was fortunate to roll out a bit when it found the green. After Clark came up short on a birdie try, Watson poured in a hook trickler that elicited a roar and appropriate celebration from the now-seven-time winner on the PGA TOUR. It's his first victory aboard and first in a World Golf Championships event. In addition to the timely eagle, he led the field with 25 birdies.

Bubba Watson enjoyed a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in his third round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

The lefty holed another seven birdies at Sheshan International today. He leads the field with 19 birdies, nine of which on the set of four par 5s, including at each in the third round. While he also squared two bogeys and a double, Watson sits at 9-under 207, just two swings in arrears of Graeme McDowell's overnight lead.

Bubba Watson enjoyed a 5-under-par 36-31=67 in his second round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions and posted 6-under 138, good for the new 36-hole clubhouse lead.

First Thorbjørn Olesen (4-under 140), and then Tim Clark (5-under 139), and now Watson, the clubhouse lead at the midpoint continues to go one lower. However, neither of the first two claimed the temporary top spot quite like the lefty. After alternating two bogeys and two birdies on his front side, Watson parred the first four holes coming in. He then closed birdie-birdie-birdie-birdie-birdie at Sheshan International Golf Club.
