Video: Bubba Watson Backs Up Rickie Fowler After Fan Heckling

Bubba Watson came to Rickie Fowler's defense after he was heckled by a fan.

If you’re going to mess with Rickie Fowler, be prepared to go through Bubba Watson first.

When Fowler missed a birdie putt on the 18th at the Memorial Tournament (a sour finish on a disappointing opening round of 75), a fan shouted something at him. While inaudible to television mics, it was clear that Fowler heard it — he glared into the gallery following the miss.

Playing partner Watson heard it too, but he wasn’t about to keep cool about it.

“Who said it?” Watson asks the gallery, moving towards the crowd. When he was met with no response, he continued: “Oh you’re tough now are you?”

Watson finished with an even-par 72 Thursday, and Patrick Reed rounded out the threesome with a 4-under 68.

Don’t mess with the Golf Boys!
