Bubba Watson wins the Farmers Insurance Open

Bubba Watson is swinging with the big boys! 

 The golfer has been on quite the run for the past year first winning the 2010 Travellers Championship then coming in second at the 2010 PGA Championship.  Now Bubba Watson has won the first big PGA event of the year at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Bubba Watson was able to win his first big win last year in honor of his father Gerry Watson in June.  Gerry would pass away in October 2010 after a battle with throat cancer.   At the time of his father’s passing Bubba tweeted, “My dad got to see me win & play for USA in the Ryder Cup!!!! Gods plan is always right! Golf gave my family my best year & worst year!!” 

It seems that his dad may be enjoying the show from the hereafter after Bubba Watson won the Farmers Insurance Open by a single stroke over Phil Mickelson.
