Golf fans were relentlessly cruel in their answers. While many said "last" and "dead last," others said "crying" or "miss the cut." One user even wrote that Watson will "finish his caddy's career."

Watson, 38, is currently ranked No. 19 in the Official World Golf Ranking. He ended the 2016 season ranked No. 10. Watson is ranked No. 123 in 2017 FedExCup season points. He has played in eight events this season, once finishing in the top-10. His best finish was when he tied for sixth in the Dec. 4 Hero World Challenge.
