Biography

One of the longest hitters in the game, he won the 2012 Masters Tournament with an audacious shot to beat Louis Oosthuizen in a 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, and Oosthuizen bogeyed, handing Watson his first Major title. Is known for his unorthodox swing, a result of being self-taught, and has won a total of four 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.
