On an episode of Outkick 360 with Chad Withrow and Jonatan Hutton, LIV Golf star Bubba Watson was asked a hypothetical question about a return to the PGA Tour.
“If and when your contract is up, or if you’re no longer owning a team on the LIV tour, and the PGA Tour was open to it, and you could still play, would you consider going back to the PGA Tour, if that option was available?” Withrow asked the RangeGoats GC team owner.
“Yeah, one-hundred percent,” said Watson, a two-time Masters champion. “I’ve told my teammates – just for the record, you’re the first ones to hear this. I told my teammates, if I’m not good enough and you think I’m a bad player, kick me out and we’ll get a fourth player that can help your team win on LIV.
“And luckily for me, I’m an owner until I sell.
“So you know I’ll be with LIV for a while as an owner. But if everything changed, right, I sold my ownership or whatever I do with it and the PGA Tour let me play, yeah I would love to play Travelers. I would love to play in L.A. Riviera – that’s been good to me. Travelers has been good to me. You know, there’s a few places that I miss playing and would love to play.
“This week is the Players Championship so it’s fun seeing those guys hit in the water and I don’t have to sweat over 17 anymore. But, yeah, I would love to have a chance to play there (PGA Tour) again but obviously right now, you know, we’re trying to figure everything out.”
It’s not surprising that Watson would list Riviera (here) and Hartford (here), as he’s won three times at each event: Travelers (2010, 2015, 2018), Riviera (2014, 2016, 2018).
