Bubba Watson took care of business again at the Northern Trust Open for the 2nd time in three years. With the win, Watson jumped Ricky Fowler and Henrik Stenson to take 4th place in the Official World Golf Rankings. This was Watson’s 9th win since the summer of 2010. Only one person has bettered that mark – Rory McIlroy.
Is the 10th hole at Riviera Country Club the toughest par 4 on the Tour? If not, it certainly is near the top. There were 294 tee shots attempted to reach this measured 315 yard hole. Only 1 player was able to get his tee shot to stick on the green – Tyrone Van Aswegen. Even a bomber like Jason Kokrak gave in on Sunday and just played a lay up to about 90 yards.
