The rarest shot in golf can happen any time Bubba Watson has a golf club in hands. Watson was so deep in the woods late Sunday afternoon that he couldn’t even see where he was going. With his golf ball nestled on a bed of pine needles, he hit a gap wedge that shot out toward the fairway and hooked some 40 yards and onto the elevated green.Nothing less than the Masters was riding on the outcome. Nothing else would do except for a page right out of “Bubba golf.” And on a thrill-a-minute Sunday at Augusta National, where Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa made only the fourth double-eagle in the 76-year history of this major, it made Watson a Masters champion.
Great shot, great win for Bubba Watson. I don’t think anyone is complaining about Bubba being the Masters champion. Going into Sunday, I was certain Phil was going to pull it out, but he faded and others took advantage. No Tiger, no Rory, no problem. Very enjoyable Masters 2012.
