Video: The Wind Screwed Bubba Watson’s Par Putt… and He Wasn’t Happy

Video: The Wind Screwed Bubba Watson’s Par Putt… and He Wasn’t Happy

When Bubba Watson lined up for an easy two-foot putt during his opening round at Augusta… you could have bet your house he was going to make birdie.

Unfortunately, if you did, you’re probably going to be sleeping on the streets tonight.

You’d think after that misfortune things could only get better for the 37-year-old, but Watson is currently +1 thru 15.

That means, at time of writing, the American sits joint 34th alongside, Dustin Johnson, Keegan Bradley, Sergio Garcia and Martin Kaymer.

Meanwhile, the tournament favourite Jordan Spieth tops the leaderboard on -6, having completed his round earlier today.
