What do you associate Bubba Watson with? A pink driver, tears and maybe a few outspoken words. Well it was another eventful week for the American at the Northern Trust Open in Los Angeles.
The two-time Masters winner found himself passing a kidney stone, receiving a text from NBA star Stephen Curry outlining some shooting tips for his two-year-old son and making an appearance in US show "Girl Meets World', the fun didn't stop there. Well maybe the kidney stones part wasn't so fun!
But what was harder, passing a kidney stone or winning the Northern Trust Open? We'll allow Bubba to judge that one.

Nevertheless, the American showed exactly why he has won two Masters, after being two shots behind Jason Korkak with just four holes to play, he produced some exceptional golf with two birdies to overtake the leader and fend off competition from fellow Masters' champ Adam Scott.
He finished 3-under with a round of 68, a one-shot victory over Scott and Kokrak. His latest win was his second in three years at Riviera and now moves him to World Number 4.
"The highlight is definitely winning," Watson said. "When you come to Hollywood, there's a lot of things you can do. It's fun. And winning is the cake."
So maybe passing the kidney stone was worth it after all.
