As Predicted "Bubba Watson Wins The Masters"

By Darren

If you didn't see my tweets before and during the Masters here they are:

"Well Tiger has let me down, on the eve of the final day I am picking Bubba of Bubba hitting his driver… 

The reason why I thought Bubba would win was because of his preperation leading into the tournament, he had given himself chances in a few tournaments this year where he failed to finish the tournament off.

The way he spoke during a press conference I saw on the Saturday gave me the confidence to back him to win on the Sunday. He talked of controlling his nerves and hitting half shots to control the disatnce of his shots as he realized when he gets excited he hits the ball so much further.

I think also the way he crept up the leaderboard suited him, rather then leading from the front where he has falted. Then add to this the way he was driving the ball and putting. Bubba Watson was hitting 52 degree wedges where other players were hitting 6 and 7 irons, so he was able to stop the ball on the fast Augusta greens much quicker.

A very popular winner, well done Bubba Watson
