Bubba Watson Sticks Approach, Burns Fan Who Suggested Punch Shot

June 28, 2015

During the final round of the Travelers Championship on Sunday, Bubba Watson showed a fan why he’s the professional.

Watson birdied the first hole, but his drive on the par-4 second found the rough. While walking up to his ball, someone from the gallery asked if he was going to punch a 4-iron under a tree. But that fan forgot one thing: Bubba doesn’t punch 4-irons.

Watson joked with him or her, saying “That’s why you’re on that side of the ropes.” From 101 yards out, the lefty went over the tree and stuck it to four feet, then looked for the fan to rub it in. He tapped in for birdie and took the lead.
