Victory in the 2012 Masters Tournament saw Bubba rocket up the World Rankings to no.4. It was his 1st Major win and there were emotional scenes on the 10th green after his play off against Louis Oosthuizen. After a quiet 2013 Bubba collected his 2nd green jacket with victory at the 2014 Masters which lifted him back to no.4 in the world. One of a small minority of left-handed golfers on the pro tour. Bubba is regarded as having the longest drive on the PGA Tour and is one of the few tour pros to be able to hit a golf ball over 350 yards in distance. In order to generate staggering ball speeds of up to 194mph Watson endorses PING clubs and equipment. If you are looking for an authentic Bubba Watson driver the Florida-born ace uses the PING G25 driver for optimised distance and accuracy.
