Watson, Bradley joke during news conference


MEDINAH, Ill. – Keegan Bradley and Bubba Watson had a funny moment Friday evening during their post-round media commitments.

Bradley was trying to put into perspective what it was like playing alongside Phil Mickelson for two winning Day 1 matches against the best that Europe had to offer.

Then he was asked about the last shot of their afternoon fourball match when Mickelson hit his tee shot on the par-3 17th hole to 2 feet, essentially ending the match with a 2-and-1 victory against Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell.

“Without a doubt in my mind, it’s the greatest shot I’ve ever seen,” Bradley said.

Watson quickly jumped in and added: “You ever see that shot that I hit that one time?”

The shot obviously being the hooked wedge that Watson hit in the playoff this year at the Masters to win the green jacket.
