A Golf Channel commentator said, “Bubba puts a new spin on the over-coached golf world.” Watson, who made four straight birdies on the back nine and closed with a 4-under 68, made it all seem so SIMPLE. Maybe it’s because he has a bright pink driver. Maybe it’s because he is one of the few players who doesn’t have a swing coach, and never has. And maybe it’s because he has the right attitude.
”I don’t play the sport for fame. I don’t try to win tournaments for fame,” Watson said. ”I don’t do any of that. … I’m just Bubba… I just want to be me and play golf.”
