Bubba Watson (FJ Icon #52005 and FJ SPIDR2)
shot a 5 under par 67 to win the Farmer's Insurance Open for his second
career victory. Bubba started the day 1 stroke off the lead on a very
crowded leaderboard. Known for his prodigious length, it was his deft
putting stroke that helped clinch the victory late. Flying the green on
the par 4 17th leaving him a treacherous downhill chip, Watson rolled
his chip 10 feet by the hole. He sank the putt to keep the lead. On
the par 5 18th, Bubba sank a 12 foot downhill slider for birdie that all
but assured him the victory.
Bubba trusted his FJ SPIDR2
glove with Digital Tac Response leather to keep up with his immense
swing speed and his superhuman ability to shape shots on his way to the
Nick Watney also made some noise earlier in the day closing with a 63 and back nine 28 to finish in tied for sixth.
Glad for Bubba. He played well and stayed focused throughout.
Great tournament and a lot of FJ guys up at the top.
Congrats to all that picked bubba, he is a great guy!!! Great contest and keep um coming!!!
A nice win for Bubba. The sand save on 18 was amazing.
We (heart) Bubba ! and his such a wonderful attitude toward the game and life
Congratulations to Bubba, he really earned his win with great putting. The fact that he can also hit that long ball didn't hurt either.
Congrats to Bubba on a well earned win.
Great win by Bubba - he made a lot of clutch shots under pressure. FJ has another player in the winners circle this year!
Congrats to Bubba for the Big "W" on Sunday from a UGA fan!! Hope this is the beginning of many for 2011 - would love to win the autographed glove - see you in Augusta, this is your year!!!!
Thanks to footjoy!!
All of us who picked Bubba to be the top player in your last contest should win a shirt. It's only 5 shirts! And he not only was the top footjoy player he won the whole dang thing beating out Philly Phil at his home course!
Great Job Bubba!!! Way to seal the deal down the stretch!
I understand your issue with how we chose a winner and next time we will consider giving everyone a shirt depending on the outcome.
Can't beleieve the touch he has with the crazy distance! I would be scared to aim at the some of the spots he does!
A great win for Bubba and good viewing for golf fans with drama to the end.
Phil kept it interesting with the hole out attempt and how about "Jonny" Vegas?
I think he's going to be someone to reckon with on the PGA tour this year.
