  • Bubba Watson... I don't get it!

    I know he is young and an up and comer on the Tour.... but I really dont get his style of play.... I really think he needs to re-evaluate how he approaches the game....

    Apparently he is one of the least winningest players on tour going back to his collegiate years...

    It just shows you that bombing the ball 200yrds with a 9 iron is not going to win you a tournament. If he practiced a little more course management he would probably have an easier time on tour...

    I've seen alot of improvement in him over the last year and especially to this year. He is 31 so he's not young. I don't think his swing will hold up in the stretch but the more he hangs around the top the better he'll get.

        I agree he just plays SO aggressive and needs to reign it in a little.
        he was pretty good today with some nice green side shots and his putter was decent too!!

        he is really close to winning, 2nd top five finish this season

        his one big problem today was playing his HUGE draw???????????? on every tee box?????????

          agree, obviously good being on tour but he lacks the complete game

          poor putter, poor sand saves, 78th in birdies

          also seems to be erractic with the driver 137th in accuracy

          I am sure he will get lucky one day . put it all together for a weekend and win a tourney

            With his distance he should hit a strong 3 wood.. probably still get it out there 300ish maybe give him a little more control.. just like stenson... he has won a few tourney's playing a 3 wood!

              Just plain stupid is all. Who the hell would want to make the game harder?!?!? Playing a 30+ yard hook with your wedges, let along ever other club. I know he wants to bring more 'artistry' as he's put it back to the game, how about win once before you start spouting off about how things should be played...

                I believe they stated today he has always suffered from ADD and this affects his game as you need to be calm and focused. He said both of which is hard for him and always has been. He has never been diagnosed by a clinical doctor as he said he prefers to deal with it in his own way but golf has helped him. Possibly the out of control episodes. He is a good player and needs to work on himself and he may just get htere one day.

                  You can't teach an old dog new tricks. The tour is littered with big bombers with no short game and short game artists with no ball striking. The few at the top does both reasonably well. I don't see how Bubba can teach himself how to pitch, chip and putt any better. If he can, he would have done it already.

                      I have a feeling that he would hold it together one week in a major and win a big one, but would not become a consistent winner on the tour.

                        Agreed, why does he always have to shape his shots? Most of the time it's not necessary. I know he good at it, but...

                          Lucky might not be the best term to describe a player winning a tournament?

                            of course he is good he is on the tour.....but never won anything not even in College , something is up there

                            lucky in that he is able to put it all together one week

                            he may very well win a PGA tour event.
