It was a miracle shot that won Bubba Watson his first major title in golf but according to the man himself, he would rather not have a repeat of that famous lob that win him the Masters title at Augusta.
Speaking of the high hook shot that he hit from the pine straw at the 10th hole of the Georgia Club, which was his second hole in a winning sudden death playoff, Watson stated that he hopes he will be able to hit the fairway from now onwards and would not need to practice that particular shot anymore.
The ball that Watson hit the ball that sailed through a gap in the trees and down onto the greens before rolling and rolling to a halt just ten feet away from the hole and it was this shot that helped him defeat the South African Louis Oosthuizen few minutes later. Bubba Watson is known as a big hitter and was speaking via conference call to promote the defense of his Masters title at the Augusta National, the first major championship of the new golfing season, which will take place between the 11th and 14th of April.
He stated that the other shots that he hit throughout the weekend were just as important, stating that obviously the shot he hit that won him the playoff was the most important but added that the other shots he hit were just as difficult but at that time, nobody cared about what he was doing.
And Bubba Watson that the shot he hit has gone into golf folklore and stated that he wants that shot to live, and is proud to have left a legacy on the game that many people claim will live in the hearts of those who saw for many years to come.
