Bubba Watson overcame the bunker with a low chip and then used a putter to birdie the 12th hole in the second round of the 3M Open of the PGA Tour on July 23.
Watson started on hole 1, scoring two birdies and no bogey on 11 holes. On the 12th par5 hole, 593 yards long, he played 353 yards into the rough grass next to the lake to the right of the fairway. The second shot was 225 yards, but he let the club fall behind his back at the end of the move because when he saw the ball rush to the bunker. However, it stopped on a steep grassy slope, about a yard from the mouth of the trap. This location is nearly 16.5 meters from the hole while the bunker is nine meters long.
With the target pennant in front of the green and the ball on the slopes, it was difficult for Watson to enter with a high tire because the clubhead could “scratch”. After thinking for a while, Watson took the stick four times and then made a move. He aimed the grass straight in the direction of the flag in his chip roll. The ball crosses the bunker, climbs up, and stops about two inches from the edge of the post.
At this point, Watson entered the rough again, nearly four meters from the hole. From the thick grass, he uses the putter in an innovative way – using the tip of the clubhead. The ball goes straight into the hole after the knock.
This phase is similar to Kevin Na in the second round of John Deere Classic on July 9.
Finishing an impressive performance, Watson scored a fourth birdie on hole 13, bogey on hole 14, from there holding par until the end of the game. This match, he hit 68 strokes. American golfer born in 1978 has won 12 PGA Tour championships, including two majors – Masters 2012, 2014 through 19 years of professionalism.
After two rounds of the 3M Open on par71, Watson scored -2, just above the knockout line. Dustin Johnson – the second golfer in the world (OWGR table) only par after 36 holes, so he soon left the event with a prize fund of 6.6 million USD. Johnson was with Watson, also entangled in a bunker next to the 12th green and a bogey peg.
Watson stood at T54 with 18 players, eight strokes from the top of the table. First place belongs to Adam Hadwin and Ryan Amour. After two days, the top of the round was still at 64 strokes. Yesterday, Brian Stuard thanks to the achievement of jumping 57 steps to T7 with a score of -8.
