Bubba Watson (FJ ICON #52005 and SPIDR2) won the Zurich Classic for his second tour victory of the year and third overall. Throughout the tournament, the long hitting Bubba either shared the lead or held the top position himself. Beginning his final round tied with Webb Simpson (FJ ICON #52013) at twelve under par, Watson played solid golf on the front nine but still fell three strokes behind. Watson continued to play steady golf on his way through the back nine and posted fifteen under par for the tourney, forcing a playoff with playing partner Simpson. Both Simpson and Bubba birdied the first playoff hole. Playing the par-5 18th for the third time of the day, Bubba birdied from three feet and claimed the Zurich Classic. Watson also moves to number 10 in the Official World Golf Rankings with the victory.
Bubba is playing the best out of the Americans!!
Glad to see Bubba complete the Insurance Slam.
What a great tournament . Bubba & Webb dueling it out till the end. I was working there as a volunteer. I was working the 18th green so I got to see all the action on Sunday. Great crowd, great course & a great tournament!!
Congrats to Bubba, he kept his head in the game and took advantage when an odd ruling put him back in contention. Congrats also to Webb who could have disappeared under the circumstances.
GREAT TOURNAMENT WEB.
BOTH WIINNERS IN THIS ONE.
It was exciting to watch Bubba play almost as good as Tiger or Phil. I am getting used to the new young players on tour and how good they really are.
Good to see Bubba win and also nice that his mother was there to see him win.
Good for Bubba. Always nice to see him at the top of the leaderboard.
He's a great player and one of my personal favorites. It's great to see him lighting it up! Keep er goin Bubba
