Bubba's viral putt-putt shot worth a 'water' from friends


DUBLIN, Ohio – Masters champion Bubba Watson is no stranger to social media or trick shots, but his most recent viral post could be the left-hander’s most impressive.

On May 22, Watson and a group of “cart boys” from his home club at Isleworth near Orlando, Fla., took a trip to Fantasia Golf at Walt Disney World and captured a video of Watson playing a hole backwards. The winding putt travelled across a sidewalk and down a slope before dropping into the hole.

“Yeah it was a legit video,” Watson said on Tuesday at the Memorial. “There were a couple of holes we played backwards. But that was the video that it actually went in.”

Watson said the “cart boys” had lost a bet and treated him to dinner before the impromptu putt-putt round and the putt, which travelled an estimated 40 feet, was worth a “water.”

“I dominated them all day,” he smiled.
