Bubba Watson (FJ golf shoes, SPIDR2 glove) rallied from six strokes behind to beat fellow FJ player Scott Verplank (FJ ReelFit golf shoes) on the second playoff hole to earn his first PGA TOUR victory Sunday at the Travelers Championship. Watson's win was the first Tour win for the new SPIDR2 glove. After sinking a 3-footer for par on the par-3 16th to win it, Watson hugged his wife, Angie, and began crying. He said he was so nervous, he could not feel his arms on the final putt."For me to get into a playoff after shooting 4 under was unreal, and to somehow make that par putt to win was unreal," said Watson, who had the largest comeback on the TOUR since Padraig Harrington also came from six back to win the 2007 British Open.Verplank left his tee shot short of the green on the second playoff hole and missed an 8-foot par putt. Watson, who had a 48-footer for birdie, was able to steady his nerves enough to get it close.Watson almost won on the first playoff hole, hitting a sand wedge on his approach within an inch of the cup from 128-yards out.
