Fan offers advice to Bubba Watson, he does opposite and hits it to 4 feet

It wasn't exactly the wedge shot from the towering magnolia and pines trees at Augusta National, but Bubba Watson had another recovery shot that created a buzz in the gallery at TPC River Highlands.

Perhaps in jest, a fan on the second hole suggested to Bubba that he should "hit a punch 4-iron" under a tree to the right of the fairway. Either the guy forgot who he was talking to, wasn't watching the 2012 Masters or doesn't have the wedge game of Bubba. It was a pretty straight-forward wedge shot from 100 yards out for someone like Bubba.

But Bubba still wanted to thank the fan for the suggestion, after he hit his wedge shot to 4 feet to set up a second straight birdie, which set up for a funny exchange.

As Bubba would say: You're welcome.
