Bubba Watson was having some fun on Wednesday in the 2018 Masters Par-3 Contest, a contest no one in the Masters field actually wants to win because of the supposed curse that taking that title means not winning the green jacket on Sunday.
He was on the seventh hole on the 1,060-yard par-3 course at Augusta National, and he had himself a putt of maybe 3 feet. But the two-time Masters champion didn’t want to just jam it in the hole with his putter. So he decided to pick a wedge out of his bag, flip it over and use it as a putter. But he didn’t just tap it in with a wedge from 3 feet. He took it a step further, hitting his putt well beyond the hole and up the hill into the pitch of the green.
And then the ball stopped. And then it started coming back to Watson.
And it kept coming. And it kept coming. Then Watson took off his visor and shook hands with his playing partners, Wesley Bryan and Jimmy Walker.
And then it kept coming, and then it went in the hole.
Wait for it…

That’s one of the wildest putts you’ll ever see, but it’s actually a Bubba Watson specialty. Practicing for the 2015 US Open at Chambers Bay in Washington, Watson did the same thing getting ready, hitting his putt 30 feet past the hole and letting it trickle back in for an amazing hole-out.
