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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bubba Watson begins his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season in the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions this week.

Watson tied for eighth at Sheshan International a year ago, and would appear to be one of the favorites on paper this time around. Length off the tee is an advantage at this course, and that's something of which Watson has plenty. While the Ryder Cup was his most recent outing, he finished 2nd in the BMW Championship and 14th in the TOUR Championship to wrap up 2013-14.

Bubba Watson turns his attention to the PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles this week at the 40th Ryder Cup.

The lefty arrives in fine form after posting top 30s in each of the four FedExCup Playoffs stops. Watson has been on a pair of Ryder Cup teams in the past, collecting a 3-5-0 record along the way. His three wins have all come in four-ball, where his record sits at 3-1-0. A record worth noting, but also means his record in singles and foursome matches is an ugly 0-4-0. Given his form this season, it wouldn't be a surprise if his overall Ryder Cup record improved after this week.

Bubba Watson got back on track with a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in his third round of the TOUR Championship.

After a 3-over-par setback in round two, the lefty matched his opening round score today. Watson was coasting along to an even-par round until he tracked one in for birdie from 21'1" on the par-4 14th hole. From there, he added a routine birdie on the par-5 15th and then used his flat stick to circle one more birdie on the par-4 17th, this time from 10'4". Watson sits at 3-under 207, and will need the current leaders to fall back some if he wants to be in true contention tomorrow.

Bubba Watson authored a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the TOUR Championship.

The lefty is at the center of converging trends, although we know that usually means little when he's concerned. With a solo second at Cherry Hills on Sunday and a T5 at East Lake last year, gamers had no problem hopping aboard this week. He paid dividends in the form of seven birdies, none longer than a 10-footer at the par-4 fifth hole. Watson also squared two bogeys and a double, so he settled for a share of the clubhouse lead with three others.

Bubba Watson looks to ride last week's momentum as he readies for East Lake Golf Club at this week's TOUR Championship.

The lefty ended his slump last week with a runner-up finish at the BMW Championship. After six top 15s in his first 10 stroke-play events of the season, he went eight straight events without one prior to last week at Cherry Hills. Arriving this week ranked third in the FedExCup standings, a win would guarantee him the FedExCup. Gamers should not hesitate to hop back on the Watson wagon at this week's Playoffs finale.

Bubba Watson conjured up a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the BMW Championship and is tied for third with 18 to play at 8-under 202.

Watson circled four birdies, all from inside of three feet, at Cherry Hills on Saturday afternoon and settled for 14 pars the rest of the way. He landed 16 GIR, and by process of elimination that would mean it isn't a surprise that he lost over two strokes with the putter. He hasn't cracked the top 15 in a PGA TOUR event since his third-place finish at the Memorial, so a solid final round could have him in an excellent place for the TOUR Championship and the Ryder Cup.
