With an imagination like Bubba Watson’s, how can we count him out at the 117th running of the U.S Open? He can still launch his drives with anyone on tour, and can even hit out of the most doubtful lies (just ask Augusta National).
Watson took to Instagram to showcase the latest tool in his bag, the new Ping G400 driver.
With a golf course that may stretch to 7,900 yards this week, coupled with unusually wide-open fairways, the two-time major champion has the potential to creep up the leaderboard at Erin Hills.
At 60-1 odds, Bubba may be a worthwhile sleeper pick to consider.
