Bubba Watson has another mini-tantrum during first round at Chambers Bay

June 18, 2015

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. -- At some point we'll grow to appreciate Bubba Watson's transparency. When he's not happy on a golf course, you don't have to strain to notice.

So it was Thursday at Chambers Bay, when Watson opened with double bogey and later made another, but still finished with an even-par 70. Cause for celebration? Not exactly. Watson was noticably irritated throughout the round, never more so than when he left his approach shot on the par-5 18th out to the right, and could be heard exclaiming, "This is pathetic. Professional golf!"
