Golf warlock Bubba Watson showed the world that magic does indeed exist and that there is something special about Augusta.
Well, that’s the case if your name is Bubba.
The southpaw was again stuck in the forest with but an iron and foolish optimism as his weapons. As it turns out, that’s all that he needed.
This is hardly the first time Watson escaped such a diabolical lie. Rewind to 2012 and the second hole of his sudden-death playoff with Louis Oosthuizen.
He found himself in the trees with a narrow window and a hard right to the green. As we all now consider unforgettable, Watson placed it on the fine cut and eventually took home a green jacket.
On Friday, Watson hit out of the woods with the ease of someone chipping it on from 50 yards out. But that’s because he’s that good. That’s because calm favors the wise.
It’s because this isn’t his first rodeo.
