Bubba Watson is a professional golfer from the United States of America who currently plies his trade as a member player in the US PGA Tour. Watson is among the very few left handed strikers in sport at this time and he is also a multiple major winner, having won the Augusta Masters twice in 2012 and 2014.
Among the longest drivers of the ball currently a part of the PGA Tour, Watson had a average drive of 315.2 yards back in 2007 and he is capable of hitting the ball over a distance of 350 yards as well, generating tremendous ball speeds of up to 194 miles an hour.
Watson had a very promising amateur career and by 2003, he turned professional and earned a membership card for the Nationwide Tour where he played for two years until 2005. He finished that season at 21st on the Money List for the Nationwide Tour, which made him the last player to secure qualification to the PGA Tour for the following season.
The making of Bubba Watson was, however, at the 2007 edition of the US Open as he reached the final group on the Saturday and at one point, was just one stroke off the lead before a string of disappointing shots saw him slip first to third and then fourth before going on to finish tied for fifth place.
But Bubba Watson had to wait till 2010 to secure his first win on the PGA Tour when he won the Travellers Championship and went on to dedicate the victory to his parents, and especially his father who beat cancer.
Watson has been a regular member of the United States Ryder Cup team since he broke into the limelight and is one of the most promising players for the team.
Ryder Cup because he wants to make sure that he recovers completely before he can participate in any of the future major golfing tournaments.
He had undergone a back surgery in the month of March this year and ever since he returned to the golf course his performance has not been impressive. Therefore people should not be surprised about the fact that he is taking a break from the Ryder Cup 2014.
The dire need of the time is to ensure that Woods’ back muscles can be healed completely so that any future health complications can be avoided.
It seems that money is not an issue for Tiger Woods because he is giving high priority to his health and recovery. Woods is going to lose a lot of money as he has planned not to participate in the Ryder Cup.
Along with that, Woods will not appear in many other corporate events and tournaments. This means that he will miss out on all the appearance fees that he would acquire if he had been a part of those tournaments and outings.
Appearance fees are basically fees that are offered to the players for just showing up at the different events.
Woods will not play in Argentina at the America’s Golf Cup for which he would have got an appearance fee of about four million dollars. Plus Tigers Woods will not attend two corporate outings to be held in Asia for which he would have got around two million dollars per appearance.
The main thing that Woods wants to do now is to focus on his recovery and get prepared to give tough competition next year at Augusta to the rising golf player- Rory Mcilroy. Mcilroy is often compared to Woods due to his recent successes.
The golfing superstar- Tiger Woods is going to make an appearance on the Tonight Show along with the rising star- Rory Mcilroy on the 18th of August, 2014 (Monday). They both are also going to make an appearance for Nike at the Liberty National (New Jersey) on the same day.
Surprisingly both the golf players are moving in different directions. Rory Mcilroy is at the peak of his golfing career as he has won his 4th major championship by winning the PGA Championship on Sunday (10th of August, 2014). On the other hand, Tiger Woods is struggling in his career because of injuries and personal problems.
Both of them became friends some years back when they had got the opportunity to compete against each other on the golf course. Mcilroy and Woods are often compared to each other and people are predicting that Mcilroy might be the apparent heir to Woods in the near future.
The Tonight Show is a show hosted by the golf enthusiast- Jimmy Fallon who had recently made fun of many of the golf players participating in the PGA Championships including Mcilroy and Woods on his show. Fallon has also been featured on the cover of Golf Digest.
This is the second time that Tiger Woods is going to be a part of the Tonight Show. Rory Mcilroy however is going to be a part of the show for the very first time.
Some possible things that might be discussed in the Tonight Show on Monday are: It seems golf does not need Tiger Woods anymore, the chaotic end of the tournament at Valhalla golf club, Rory’s work out regime compared to Woods’ work out regime, Woods future plans and so on.
Fans all over the world are eagerly waiting for the joint appearance of Mcilroy and Woods on the Tonight Show.
English golfer Justin Rose had been out for most of the early part of the 2014 season with a shoulder injury before making his return to competitive golf in the Northern Trust Open at the Riviera CC in Los Angeles, California.
And the question on everyone’s mind at the moment is how he managed to injure his shoulder in the off season.
According to the golfer, he hurt his shoulder while throwing a golf ball at his caddie while playing at The Barclays and it has been confirmed that Rose played through the remainder of the 2013 season with that injury.
And with such a comment coming from the golfer, it doesn’t bode well with the long argued comment that golfers are also athletes as well.
It’s not that Justin Rose was trying to throw a slider to his caddie or was even trying to break the speed barrier on the greens. He could also have said that he didn’t hurt his shoulder but it was just normal wear and tear. Still, Rose managed to battle through that injury and that was commendable.
Rose mentioned that beginning from October, he played till the end of the season with that injury, adding that he had thought a few days’ rest during the off period in Christmas would have been enough to heal it but it didn’t happen and that is when he realized he needed to put in a lot of effort into it. But there was nothing to fear as it didn’t require any surgery and there was no tear as well.
Justin Rose admitted that now that he is healthy again, his goal is to improve as a golfer day in and day out and build up some confidence in his game and he also wants to be more disciplined as well.
The South African born English professional golfer Justin Peter Rose shows most of his gold performances on the PGA Tour. He also keeps his membership on the European Tour. The major championship that the player won in his golf career was at the US Open held in the year 2013 at the Merion Golf Club. This victory had made him the first English player who won a major after Mick Faldo since 1996 and the first one to achieve an US open title after Tony Jacklin since 1970.
In 2007 Justin Rose won the order of merit on the European Tour. He was ranked in the top ten of the world from November 2007 to July 2008. Rose won his first World Golf Championship event in the year 2012 March at the WGC Cadillac Championship. This also led him to the world top 10 list. In 2013 Justin Rose finished second to Tiger Woods in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. This took him to a ranking as high as 3rd in the world.
The year 2012 recorded a number of great performances from the golfer. Rose recorded his best performance in the PGA Championship of 2012. Europe’s spectacular comeback against the US was marked by the performance showed by Rose in the 2012 Ryder Cup. In the same year he also won the 8-man Turkish Airlines World Golf Final where he defeated Lee Westwood in the final by a single stroke. After progressing with a cent percent record from his group, in the semi finals he defeated Tiger Woods by a single stroke.
In the US Open held in the year 2013 at Merion Golf Club, Justin Rose won his maiden major championship over Phil Mickelson and Jason Day by two strokes. In 43 years, Rose became the first Englishman who won the US open.
Justin Rose, the South African born English golfer, has already determined what he would do if he amasses a cheque for £ 7.16 million on Sunday at Tour Championship. He would give most of it away to public welfare. That huge amount is a real probability for US Open champ as he aims the $ 1.44 million for winning the championship plus gathering the $ 10 million bonus for taking FedEx Cup.
Justin Rose has his very own foundation named Blessings in a Backpack which is run by his wife Kate and offers school meals for one thousand and six hundred underprivileged kids in Orlando. Rose stated that it is a staggering amount of money and they could do an awful lot of good things with that. They could change the lives of a lot of people.
Justin appearing to keep an exclamation degree on his career’s finest season and he also believes that he is swinging better compared to any level of the campaign. The thirty three year old British golfer ended 2nd in the contest previous year and is a huge fan of the historic East Lake place that was founder of Augusta National Bob Jones’s home golf course. He told that it is very strategic and this is also his most loved kind of golf.
Justin begins in 9th spot going into this, which is the last stage of the 4 tournament FedEx Cup golf event play offs, and so beyond the top 5 who govern their own luck. If Adam Scott, Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Henrik Stenson and Tiger Woods, wins there, they would take home the £ 7.16 million.
