VIDEO: Bubba Watson hit a 400-yard drive at the PGA Championship

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. -- Bubba Watson is long, but his drive on No. 13 in the final round of the 2015 PGA Championship was ridiculous.

On the par-4 13th, Watson drove it through the green at the 409-yard hole. According to the PGA's Shot Tracker, the drive went 398 yards, ending up pin-high to the right of the hole location.

For his second shot, Watson had a sticky chip that he didn't perform all that well, leaving about 8 feet for a birdie that he went on to make. For the two-time Masters winner, it was his fourth consecutive birdie to start the back nine to get to 4 under on the round, overcoming an opening pair of bogeys.

Watson rallied in the middle part of his first nine, making birdie at the fifth, then recording the first eagle of the week at the 355-yard sixth hole.

When it's going good, Bubba Golf is fun.
