Watch: Bubba Watson Busts Driver Head and Still Makes Birdie


During the second round of the Travelers Championship, Bubba Watson busted his driver on his tee shot and still made birdie.

The three-time Travelers winner joked, “Yeah, it was a perfect tee shot right down the middle. Chipped it in there and made the putt for birdie…

“It’s one of the things where the driver is travel, heat, cold, whatever it is, over time, overuse, my driver head popped off. It’s the shaft right above the hosel. It’s cracked, broke, whatever you want to call it.”

He added, “It’s one of those things that happened before and I always have a back up. They brought me the back up two holes later and I played with that the rest of the day.”
