Bubba Watson’s Ping Clubs That Won the Travelers Championship
With his victory Sunday at the Travelers Championship, Bubba Watson became the fourth player with multiple PGA Tour wins this season and jumped to No. 3 in the world ranking, behind only Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth.
The victory is Watson’s second at TPC River Highlands in Connecticut, a bomb-and-gouge type course that fits his game perfectly. Watson’s first PGA Tour victory came at the Travelers Championship in 2010, when he beat Scott Verplank and Corey Pavin in a playoff.
En route to his playoff victory over Paul Casey Sunday, Watson finished first in driving distance at 318.5 yards (no surprise), T1 in putts per round (26.75), sixth in strokes gained/tee-to-green and ninth in strokes gained/putting. Watson is putting with a Ping Anser Milled 1 putter.
For the season, Watson ranks 18th in strokes gained/putting.
To lead the field in driving distance, Watson used an 8.25° Ping G30. He’s ranked third for the season in driving distance at 309.5 yards a pop.
Watson also led the field in scrambling, getting the ball up-and-down at a rate of 90.91 percent. He’s using Ping Glide 52, 56SS and 60TS wedges.
