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. Sep 22 - 8:34 AM

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.
Sep 6 - 6:03 PM

Bubba Watson completed 36 hole of the BMW Championship in 4-under-par 70-66=136 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Watson started the week at sixth in the FedExCup standings, but he's registered only one top 25 in his last eight starts, and that was only a T16 at Greenbrier. Thus far at Cherry Hills, the lefty has totaled 24 greens in regulation. They have yielded an eagle and seven birdies. His eagle was as pedestrian as it gets, except for the fact that he striped his drive over the first set of cross-bunkers at the par-5 17th today. Watson then bumped his 196-yard approach to within five feet for the great look. His longest of four birdies today fell in from 37'6" at the par-3 eighth hole.
Sep 5 - 6:49 PM

Bubba Watson turned in a 3-under-par 34-34=68 for his opening round of The Barclays, finishing two strokes adrift of the clubhouse tri-leaders.

The lefty made his peace with his behavior at the PGA Championship, but it's just another chapter in the saga that keeps us glued to his next decision. Meanwhile, inside the ropes, he split eight (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation at Ridgewood today. Watson squared three bogeys, but he picked off six birdies, including on each of the three par 5s. His longest conventional conversion rolled in from 20'5" at the par-3 15th, but the highlight of the day came courtesy of a hole-out for birdie from the rough 10 yards away at the par-4 16th. He began the FedExCup Playoffs as the 3-seed, so he's poised for four starts in as many weeks.
Aug 21 - 2:15 PM

Bubba Watson completed 36 holes of The 143rd Open Championship in 4-over-par 76-72=148, missing the cut by two strokes.

Gamers often cringe when Watson crosses the Atlantic. His experience at Royal Liverpool wasn't without some drama, especially on Thursday, but we still expect better than this. He erased eight birdies with nine bogeys and a triple en route to his second straight missed cut in a major since his second Masters title in April. Other notables that failed to survive the cut today include: 147--1997 champ Justin Leonard; Lee Westwood; Ian Poulter ... 148--1995 champ John Daly; 2003 champ Ben Curtis; Harris English; Erik Compton; Miguel Angel Jiménez ... 149--Patrick Reed; George McNeill ... 151--2004 champ Todd Hamilton; J.B. Holmes; Chesson Hadley; Jamie Donaldson ... 152--2001 champ David Duval; 2002/2012 champ Ernie Els; 2008/2009 champ Padraig Harrington ... 153--1987/1990/1992 champ Nick Faldo; Webb Simpson ... 154--1999 champ Paul Lawrie ... 166--1985 champ Sandy Lyle.

Bubba Watson reached the break of The Greenbrier Classic in 5-under-par 68-67=135, three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He's getting by with less than his best, so it's shaping up to be a potentially great weekend for the lefty that recently purchased land in the area. He hit 12 greens today and poured in four birdies, the longest from 13'7" at the par-4 fifth. Watson also jarred a par attempt from 14'10" at 8 to maintain momentum into the third round. Overall, he's missed 13 GIR, but has limited the damage to four bogeys.

Bubba Watson is second in all-time earnings at the Travelers Championship and is back for more this week.

It wasn't love at first sight for the 2010 Travelers champion, as Watson missed the cut in his 2006 debut. Since then, he's 6-for-6 with five finishes inside the top 15, including a victory and a runner-up finish. Six podium finishes on the season parlayed with phenomenal course history makes Watson one of the favorites this week.

Bubba Watson clawed back with an even-par 36-34=70 in his second round of the 114th U.S. Open, but missed the cut on the number at 6-over 146.

Sixty-seven golfers survived the 36-hole cut of low 60 and ties. Watson traded four birdies with four bogeys at Pinehurst No. 2 today, but he'll leave town knowing that he simply didn't produce enough opportunities to break par and play on. The left gathered only 19 greens in regulation. Ignoring his withdrawal from Bay Hill due to allergies, this is his first official missed cut since last year's PGA Championship. Other notables that failed to survive today include: 146--2007 champ Ángel Cabrera; Charl Schwartzel; Luke Donald; Jason Dufner; Hunter Mahan; Miguel Angel Jiménez ... 147--2006 champ Geoff Ogilvy; John Senden; David Toms ... 148--2009 champ Lucas Glover; Lee Westwood; Matt Every; Ryan Palmer ... 150--Graham DeLaet ... 153--Jonas Blixt.
Jun 13 - 8:42 PM

Bubba Watson settled for a 6-over-par 38-38=78 in his opening round of the 114th U.S. Open.

The only man with a chance at the 2014 Grand Slam walked off Pinehurst No. 2 eight strokes off the clubhouse lead. He hit nine only nine greens in regulation and found one birdie. Watson also squared five bogeys and a double (at the par-5 10th hole). He's too good and too proud not to give it his best on Friday, but daily gamers may want to holster him until the weekend in case he doesn't make the cut. At the time he signed his card, he sat T125 on the leaderboard. Regardless of what happens, however, he needs to be back in your lineup at next week's Travelers Championship where he ranks No. 2 in all-time earnings.
Jun 12 - 6:42 PM

Bubba Watson looks to pick off his second major championship of 2014 at Pinehurst No. 2 in the U.S. Open this week.

Considering another long and eclectic lefty by the name of Phil Mickelson finished second at Pinehurst in the 1999 U.S. Open and is also a multiple Masters Champion, there is plenty of reason to be optimistic that this course will fit Watson's eye. He's reduced his schedule after his second Masters win in April, but enters off a third-place finish at the Memorial two weeks ago. His best U.S. Open finish was a T5 at a lengthy Oakmont in 2007.
Jun 10 - 9:29 AM

Overnight leader Bubba Watson concluded the Memorial with an even-par 35-37=72 to post 12-under 276, one stroke outside the playoff between Kevin Na and Hideki Matsuyama.

Watson's day started wonderfully. After shorting his approach into the par-4 first, he calmly holed his 12-yarder for birdie. After birdies from 10'3" and 10'8", respectively, at Nos. 10 and 11, he sat 3-under on the round. Watson then parred 12 and 13 before penciling in a bogey-5 at 14. But the true undoing occurred at the par-5 15th where he sailed his drive out of bounds en route to a double bogey. He parred in with no realistic looks at another opportunity to break par. This is the fifth time in as many chances that the Masters champion has failed to convert victory after holding sole possession of a 54-hole lead.
Jun 1 - 6:14 PM

Bubba Watson spun a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of the Memorial Tournament to take a one-stroke lead into the final round at 12-under 204.

Watson did most of his damage on the front nine, circling five birdies to just one bogey before the turn at Muirfield Village. He added one birdie on the back, but swallowed a pair of bogeys. Highlights included a 17'11" birdie on the par-4 third and a 12'3" birdie at the par-5 15th. His ball-striking and putting stats were modest across the board and nothing stood out as being the catalyst for his success. Bubba is already a two-time winner on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14, hoisting the hardware at the Northern Trust Open and the Masters. He will go for the trifecta in Sunday's final round.
