Golfer Bubba Watson was headed to the 16th hole, a par 3, with a two-shot lead in the Travelers Cup.

By the time he finished the hole, he had picked up a triple-bogey. He landed in the water hazard on his first stroke, and by the time he made it in he had lost his chance to win.

So he went off on his caddie, Ted Scott. He complained to Scott, sarcastically questioning his club selections. As he left the 16th, Watson acted like he was going to carry his own bag for the final two holes. Scott ended up carrying it, and finished the round.

He snapped at caddie Scott, saying, "Water. It's in the water. That club. Yes, the water." After he missed the green on his next shot, Watson said, "So you're telling me that's the right yardage?"

CBS caught it on camera, and Watson tweeted about it later to make up for his behavior.


Watson ended up finishing two strokes out of the playoff and snapped at a PGATour.com reporter, saying "Don't try to make me look bad!" despite no one bringing the incident up.
