What a great talent! Love watching Bubba hit shots like these!

The pros have such an advantage over amateurs with the courses they play. No common course would’ve given that roll onto the green like that. Still an awesome shot.

Love to see Sandy Lyle in his driving prime play that hole

Being a lefty helped big time there ...being righty and trying to draw that shot in with a driver would have been very tough ...just sayin...

Who would've thought a guy with a name like "Bubba" would hit a golf shot like that.

Corek BleedingHollow (6 months ago)
If I tried that with a driver off the deck, I would've topped the shit out of it. How did he do that???

Freakishly talented. Like his back to back chip ins at the 2018 Players Championship. On #7 and #8.

Modern drivers I thought were meant to be hit on a ascending path...how did he pull this off oh I know he's got more skills then i

He is such an idiot, but what an amazing shot maker.

I love the "Bubba grin" as he is walking up the fairway after that incredible second shot.

Just played this hole from the tips last week. I had watched this clip quite a few times in anticipation of playing Kapalua. After actually playing this hole, I hate to say that I'm far less impressed by this video. There is far more topography than the camera shows, which allows the ball to travel much further downhill than you'd expect. This green is quite reachable in two for any decent golfer that can drive the ball 300 yards off the tee. The placement of his tee shot is on the right side of the fairway, which is about 40-50 yards further away from the hole than where you would want to play it. If he had been in proper position with his tee shot, he would have had an easy 3 or 4 iron into the green. With that said....still a wonderfully creative shot that took a non-ideal lie and turned it into an eagle. That's the difference between the pros and the rest of us!

I can now say when I slice with my driver, I'll tell my buds I'm carving the driver y'all wouldn't get it.
Peter Cavellini (7 months ago)
It’s a stupid long Hole even for most of the Pros, and for us Handicappers it’s a four shot hole to get on the putting surface, getting a Par is like getting a Birdie .😎

Watson is one of the all-time most talented golfers. Never had a lesson. Hits the tar out of the ball, and is great around the greens. I loved watching him in the Ryder Cup, hitting the ball 340 yards off the first tee with the crowd screaming behind his back.

What driver did he use?? Is it G15?

That guy who talks and says “that is the best golf shot of the year” needs to clear his damn throat that’s nasty

How is 3 under a 70??
Blx5 (6 months ago)
Par is actually 73 at the Plantation Course (36 on the first nine and 37 on the second). It's not the typical 72 that you see at most courses.

I don’t get it. He took 3 shots on this hole. The title says driver driver putt. But you guys don’t show the first drive? Come on!

I played Kapalua. I went 3 wood 3 wood....oh I forgot, then wedge to the green to a very similar pin position. 😎

hit keys 7,8,9....using illegal driver
Mark Mark (11 months ago)
The circumstances are different for every shot on everyday. I hit a 300 yard 3 wood last month, my fellow players called bullshit on it, so I dropped a ball and did it again. Tail wind, light long grass for a flyer, it was all there for the shot. Other days I might struggle for 200 yards. Bubba's shot was awesome indeed, with incredible result, but not as hard as some of you think. Imagine the hole in reverse for a right hander, many of you could do that with a wild swing and natural (for you) slicing strike.

but to fade it like that with a driver off the deck was amazing

Moe Norman used to do shit like this.. Caddie: Use a driver and a 8 iron and you are on the green. Moe: I teed off with the 8 iron instead and used the driver on the second shot to reach the green..

Bubba Watson is far and away one of the most out of the box, nonstandard, forward thinking golfers the sport has seen, probably ever. If more pro caliber golfers would learn to perfect and work WITH their hooks and slices and add them as an unseen tool in the arsenal contained in their golf bags, instead of working to eliminate them from their swing, then so think shots like the one featured in the video would become far more common. Those are definitely shots future PGA champs will need to have in their repertoire to be successful against other guys who are Bubba Watson fans.

he should of putted with the driver

He was only able to pull this shot because of his unfailing belief in a higher power and the comfort that comes with this faith. God bless America.

Why don't you stoners take your god talk elsewhere, and talk about the actual golf shot in this video???

lol but this is only a golf shot in a non-major, come on! There's no reason why god would try to help anyone's golf game for that matter, given all the suffering in this universe he has to make amends to first.

this is why... He's the fan favorite! He plays with the "i don't give a f" attitude and goes for it all the time! #bubba

As opposed to the pathetic, lousy type of eagle.

that was arguably the most difficult shot I've seen gone after with a driver

Example #4503 of how technology has ruined the game of golf. They need to retared the 'roids and equipment so max drive is 280yds. Also, ban beer on the course. Restore the sport to sport status.

great shot, from an absolute Knob!
