Bubba Watson Passed a Kidney Stone Before Riviera Win

Bubba Watson’s week at the Northern Trust Open was everything but ordinary.

Justin Bieber gave his son music lessons. Watson swapped text messages with Steph Curry. But the strangest moment of his week might have come during the post-tournament press conference after winning the Northern Trust Open at Riviera when he discussed (at length) passing a kidney stone a few days earlier.

This may have been a classic case of offering too much information.

“The nicest way of saying it is, red liquid came out,” Watson said. “I called Angie over and I said, ‘We need to call a doctor, something’s going on.'”

Watson explained that while he had no pain, the incident made him quite nervous.

“I’m already a head case,” he said. “So my thoughts of seeing red liquids coming out, I thought I was dying, basically.”
