LIV: Bubba Watson's turn

LIV: Bubba Watson's Turn


Controversial Saudi Golf Tour LIV is said to have once again fished in the PGA Lake. This time, it is the former world number 2 Bubba Watson who would have taken the bait. 

The champion of two editions of the Masters would participate in a first tournament of the LIV over Labor Day weekend, according to The Telegraph reported.

Watson, a 43-year-old Florida golfer, is leaving the PGA Tour with 12 bank wins. However, he did not do better than a 14th place solo this season, at the Omnium Waste Management.

Kept out of action since May due to a torn meniscus, Watson would be given the role of captain on one of the four-athlete teams of the LIV as soon as it arrives on the circuit.

Recall that the organization financed by a Saudi public investment fund offers huge scholarships to athletes joining its circuit, and will increase the value of these by 2023.
