Tim Tebow is lucky Bubba Watson didn't throw away Masters victory

Bubba Watson won his second US Masters championship after holding on to a three shot lead at Augusta Sunday.

And former NFL quarterback, Tim Tebow, was quick to show his congratulations to his fellow left hander.

So quick in fact that Tebow tweeted Watson's victory before he had even finished the 18th hole last night:

"Congrats to my friend and fellow lefty @bubbawatson on winning the @The_Masters again! What an amazing accomplishment! #leftysrule," he wrote on the social media site.

Fortunately for Watson, Tebow's temping of the gods didn't affect the crucial final hole of his round, with the 35-year old, showing no signs of a Tebow-esque collapse, managing to complete a two-putt par to seal victory ahead of Jonas Blixt.

With the perfect round always one shot away from disaster, Tebow was taking a chance in congratulating Watson before the green jacket was confirmed.

But, unlike Tebow and his NFL career, Watson managed to see the job through to save any embarrassment. 

And considering that the tweet received almost 3,000 favorites, we are pretty sure people would have remembered his mistake should Watson have been overtaken.
