VIDEO: Bubba Watson sticks it close out a Japan beach bunker


Bubba Watson has no problem showcasing his skills for the cameras, and he demonstrated another brilliant shot on Wednesday in Japan.

Ahead of playing in this week'sĀ Mitsui Sumitomo Visa Taiheiyo Masters on the Japan Pro Golf Tour, Watson had a little fun in a unique architectural feature called a beach bunker, where the water from a hazard comes up to the edge of the sand, sometimes flooding into the bunker. That's what happened here, with Watson dropping a ball in the water-logged sand and then hitting a riveting explosion which landed close to the hole, much to the delight of the fans.

Of course, the customary Watson "You're welcome" after the shot is grating, but the talent is undeniable.
