Bubba Watson figures out Oakmont's rough! (Unfortunately, his method breaks the rules)
Even more than its famed greens, Oakmont's rough has drawn the most attention from players teeing it up at this week's U.S. Open. From Rickie Fowler to Justin Thomas to Smylie Kaufman, it seems every golfer is eager to share with everyone just how gnarly the grass can be at this Pittsburgh-area track. But on Tuesday, Bubba Watson figured out how to make navigating the thick stuff look easy.
Too bad his method isn't within the rules of golf.
Check out Watson catch his own chip and toss it into the 14th hole:
Actually, Watson is one of few players in the field this week who can say he's fared well at Oakmont, finishing T-5 at the 2007 U.S. Open. However, that also happens to be his lone top-15 finish in the national championship.
