Bubba Watson


Q.  You don't sound like overly disappointed like you shot yourself out of the tournament or anything like that.
BUBBA WATSON:¬† Well, no, I mean, it's golf.¬† There's going to be bad days and good days.¬† I hit the ball really well.¬† I can't complain about my ball‑striking.¬† I had four three‑putts.¬† Well, it's really three three‑putts and one was on the fringe, so I can't count it as a three‑putt, but the stats won't count it as a three‑putt.¬† So four three‑putts.¬† I never got the speed right, never got the ball to the hole.¬† They were slower than what I was expecting.¬† The balls weren't rolling out like they normally do over the past years, so I just left a lot of putts short, a lot of putts were breaking different than I was expecting.

Q.  Did it feel different playing today or just another round?
BUBBA WATSON:¬† Just another round.¬† I gave the jacket up two weeks ago when I was here, so nobody owns the jacket.¬† Everybody is playing for it right now.¬† But no, I didn't feel any different.¬† I didn't feel any more pressure to myself.¬† I just didn't get the speed right on the greens.¬† If I two‑putt all those, I shoot 1‑under, which would be a nice score.

Q.¬† You may not know the answer to this‑‑
BUBBA WATSON:  I've probably got an answer.

Q.  Why couldn't you get the speed of them?
BUBBA WATSON:¬† You know, it's one of those things, yesterday I putted really well.¬† I putted well all the practice rounds.¬† And today‑‑ to me the speed was a little lower, and I'm so used to some of these putts being so difficult because of the speed, and today I left them all short.¬† First hole, left it way short; No.2, I left it way short; 3, I left it short.¬† Let's see, where else did I three‑putt?¬† There's some other holes that I three‑putted, but I left it short on a lot of holes where I normally thought it was going to roll out some.

Q.  Did you feel like you got some things worked out?
BUBBA WATSON:¬† At 14 we misjudged the wind, we thought the wind was different and it flew a lot shorter than I was expecting, so we misjudged it there.¬† But again, the speed on the putt, the putt I'm used to breaking slightly because of the speed of it, and it just didn't‑‑ it didn't have the speed I thought, so it broke more.

Q.  When you said you don't feel any different, did you hear anything different from the galleries, any chants?
BUBBA WATSON:  No, just "go Dawgs."  Didn't matter if I was defending champ or not, it was just "go Dawgs," which was nice.
