Former Georgia Bulldogs Golfer Bubba Watson Wins Again on PGA Tour

Since tankertoad mentioned it, it’s only right that we should cover it: Bubba Watson claimed his third career PGA victory on Sunday, winning the Louisiana-based Zurich Classic on the second hole of a playoff with Webb Simpson.

The former Bulldog golf standout, who carded his first win in a tour event last year and was in the hunt heading into the final round of the 2011 Masters, opened the tournament with a 66 on Thursday, followed by a 68, a 70, and a 69 in the next three rounds. Watson and Simpson both birdied a par-five hole to start the playoff, but Bubba walked away with the win when he birdied the ensuing hole and his opponent managed only par.

As former Georgia athletes who play individual (as opposed to team) sports professionally go, I tend to think Bubba Watson ranks right up there with John Isner on the list of fan favorites who represent their alma mater well, so good for Bubba for winning for the second time this year. He’s a guy Bulldog Nation should want to see succeed.
