Bubba Watson wasn’t in the mood to take a fan’s heckling on Friday in the second day of pool play at the 2019 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.
Watson teed off on the par-4 third at Austin Country Club when apparently a member the gallery watching him take on Billy Horschel shouted something at the two-time Masters winner. Watson, who found the fairway with his drive, immediately turned eyes toward the fan, as did caddie Ted Scott.

Scott said toward the fan, “Hey buddy, just be quiet next time.”
Watson then took his turn to respond, “It’s funny how tough you were, then you looked away. … Everybody’s big behind the ropes and behind the computer.”
After another second, either Scott or Watson tells the fan to, “Get out of here.”
Watson then sounds like he’s trying to turn the tables on the spectator, saying, “Look at him. He’s still trying to look cool.”
Eventually Watson and Scott move on, heading down the hole with Horschel and his caddie as they look to continue their match in the second day of pool play. Watson is defending the title he won in this event a year ago at Austin Country club in Austin, Texas.
