One of the longest hitters in the game, he won the 2012 Masters Tournament with an audacious shot to beat Louis Oosthuizen in the play-off. Having hooked his drive right into trees and with no sight of the green, he hit a 164-yard wedge with 40 yards of hook which ended up 15 feet from the hole. He made par to Oosthuizen’s bogey, securing his first Major title. The Florida native made it two wins in three years at Augusta National in 2014, when he won the Masters for his second Major title. Later that same year, he added his first World Golf Championships title at the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai, holing a spectacular bunker shot on the final hole to force a play-off with Tim Clark, which he won courtesy of a birdie on the first extra hole. Known for his unorthodox swing and approach to the game – which he calls “Bubba Golf” – he has won a total of nine times on the US PGA Tour. Full name is Gerry Lester Watson, but was nicknamed Bubba by his father, a professional football player. A devout Christian, he went to the University of Georgia and came through the Web.com Tour in 2005.
