Bubba Watson channeled his inner Roy McAvoy in October. Tim Mitchell with GolfWRX shared a story of Watson shooting an 81 while playing a course with one club and three balls.
According to Mitchell, Watson gets bored and likes to find ways to practice his game.
But Bubba told one of our staff members that he sometimes gets bored using 14 clubs, and occasionally wants to challenge his shot making skills by playing a round with only one club.
In impressive fashion, Bubba shot 81 on the Tom Fazio-designed, par-72 championship golf course.
By playing with one club, Watson can practice all kinds of different angles and trajectories. Bubba is one of the “everyman” players on the PGA Tour, and its fun stories like this that make him even more accessible to fans.
It’s pretty easy to picture Watson sipping some beers at the 19th hole and making bets a la “Tin Cup.”
