The two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson won the Travelers Championship with four bogeys and a double bogey in just the last five holes on June 28.

The event took place at TPC River Highlands, par70 Connecticut of the PGA Tour, with $ 1,332 million for the champion.

Watson and Kramer Hickok stood at T1 at -10 after 54 holes on the field. On the last day, both started the last leg, from hole 1. Halfway through, Watson scored three birdies and no bogey. At that time, he monopolized the first place and took a one-shot lead.

In the second half, Watson, after a four-hole par streak, started sloppily from the 14th par4 hole, which was 414 yards long. He bogey this hole because it took his third shot to enter the green and then two more putts over four metres. After that omission, Watson shared the top of the table with three others, including Hickok and English – two competitors who later had to go through eight extra holes to determine the championship.

After bogey on hole 14, Watson moved to hole 15, par4 short – 273 yards. Here, the American golfer born in 1978 added a bogey, starting with the phase “for the ball to swim in the lake”.

After dropping a new ball with a penalty stroke, Watson chips onto the green, but the ball just hit the edge slips and returns to the fairway near the water hazard. He entered the hole after the second chip, adding a bogey putt.

On the 16th hole, Watson entered the green after his first shot. 14.6 meters from target, but it took him three putts to finish the hole, suffering a bogey.

On the penultimate hole, par4, Watson hits a bunker, then gets caught in a water hazard on his second shot. He hit the green on his third shot, finished after two putts and then combined a free stroke into a double bogey. The par4 18 hole, Watson, after hitting the right side of the fairway, fell into a bunker blocking the green, on the right. He escaped to the post but couldn’t keep par. After the fourth bogey over five holes, Watson finished T19 at -7.

Missing the opportunity to win the Travelers Championship for the fourth time in his career, Watson was sad but not too inhibited, because he had missed the opportunity to be crowned at this event. In 2013, he led by two strokes and had three holes left, but broke down after a missed tee shot on the 16th hole and two strokes behind the playoff line. “Gosh. I used to fail myself at this field. Back then, like this year, leading the triple bogey on the 16th hole,” Watson said yesterday Golf Channel.

Watson has been playing professionally since the age of 24, won the Masters in 2012 and 2014 in 12 PGA Tour championships, including the three times he won the Travelers Championship with the most recent occasion in 2018. Between 2006-2014, he topped the PGA Tour for about five seasons. how to kick the ball. In 2007 alone, Watson averaged 315.2 yards in the opening of the hole, with many times over the 350 yard mark and ball speed to 312 km/h.

The recent Travelers Championship ended with the championship belonging to English. He finished the duel with Hickok with a birdie 4.8 meters away on the eighth extra hole. The PGA Tour recorded this playoff as the second longest in the history of the arena since 1929 – when it was still under the Professional Golf Association of America (PGAA). It was two holes behind the end of the 1949 Motor City Open – Lloyd Mangrum shared the title with Cary Middlecoff due to darkness but the two were still tied after 11 holes. In addition to the last Travelers Championship, the PGA Tour recorded four other events that also ended after eight extra holes.
