WITB: Bubba Watson - Travelers Championship

Powered by National Club Golfer

The American grabbed his third win of the year with a stunning final round 63 at TPC River Highlands.

And he did it with a superb birdie on the last hole to edge clear of Paul Casey and the chasing pack.

We saw Bubba put some new Glide Forged wedges in play at the US Open where fellow Ping staffer Tyrrell Hatton was also among those trying them out.

But he was back using the Glide 2.0 this week.

Bubba is a loyal Ping staffer and has enjoyed all his 12 PGA Tour wins with the brand’s clubs.

He uses a pink Ping G400 LST driver and a strong G 3-wood set to 13.2˚.

We have seen Bubba playing the iBlade irons but he’s still using the S55 model – with which he won his second Green Jacket with – with the exception of an iBlade 2-iron.

He has three Ping Glide 2.0 wedges and uses a Ping Anser putter.

A key equipment change for Bubba in 2018 has been his golf ball.

Bubba switched to a Volvik ball last year where we saw him using both pink and green models but has now gone back to the Titleist Pro V1x which he won his two majors with.

The American was 117th in the world rankings at the start of the year and is now back in the top 20.

We got some behind the scenes insight from Titleist on why he favours the Pro V1x ball.
