Bubba Being Bubba

Watch Bubba Watson go on an emotional roller-coaster while making a crazy par

July 23, 2021

Happiness. Disgust. Shock. Relief. Bubba Watson went through a full range of emotions during the first round of the 3M Open. And it only took one hole.

We're going to assume the emotional Watson was smiling after a 320-yard drive split the fairway on the 18th hole at TPC Twin Cities on Thursday. From there, though, things got a bit crazy.

Bubba badly mishit his approach on the par 5 and found the pond guarding the front of the green, prompting an angry club drop. His next shot wasn't much better, but his bending par putt from 56 feet? That was perfect. Have a look:

Bubba golf! It's always a bit of wild ride watching this guy play, but that was something else.

Watson then made the turn and double-bogeyed the first hole. Without hitting it in a water hazard. Needless to say, there are no highlights of that one. And we're guessing far fewer emotions as well.
