So much for the punch 4-iron under the trees.

After Bubba Watson missed the fairway right on the par-4 second Sunday at TPC River Highlands, a fan standing nearby apparently suggested Watson play a low runner to the green, leading to this exchange and shot:

As seen in the video, after clearing the tree with a wedge and sticking his ball to 4 feet, Bubba went looking for the fan and engaged in a small amount of trash talk.

Watson went on to hole the putt, getting off to a birdie-birdie start early in his final round.
