Bubba Watson's on-course outbursts, while often wildly outrageous and unnecessary, are well documented and highly entertaining.

His most recent flare-up happened during Thursday's first round of the Hero World Challenge from Albany in the Bahamas. And though it was of the more benign occurrences Watson has orchestrated during a round, it's worth watching many times.

For the uninitiated, a "mud ball" is exactly that: a golf ball with a clump of mud attached to it. Since the rules of golf don't permit removal of mud from a golf ball, this can result in an unpredictable and often negative result. Just ask Bubba.
