Bubba Watson just pulled off a shot you wouldn't even dream of on the Playstation
Bubba Watson was already in the mood when he took part in the Masters Par 3 tournament.
Check out this gem of a put from the two-time Masters champion:

And it gets better.
Watson has made a name for himself as a conjurer of superb golf shots and a bellicose golfer to carry a bag for. Fortunately for us, and his caddy, the former skills were on sow at Augusta National in the second round.
Faced with a shot into the green that only a geometrist or wristy hurler would even consider, Watson settled into the pinewood and got busy.
Having found the brush, and with a tree right in front of him, the 39-year-old hooked his second shot around and hooped it onto the green from way out.

Puts a 50 yard hook on it from the straw. The water is about 30 yard hook to clear.

The reaction was just as awestruck as it was back in 2012 when the Florida native pulled off another viciously beautiful hook to claim a playoff victory.
Bubba Watson has just hit the best shot I’ve ever seen in my life

Bubba Watson has just hit the most ludicrous snap hook on 11 to about 20 feet. It’s up there with his shot in the playoff in 2010 #TheMasters

He missed the resulting birdie putt but did put up a shot on the 13th to reach -3 and put himself well into the mix heading into the final two rounds.
All hail Bubba. Life is rarely dull...
