Bubba Watson wins Match Play for 2nd World Golf ChampionshipAUSTIN, Texas — Bubba Watson was in high spirits for someone with such low expectations at the Dell Technologies Match Play.Walking to the sixth tee, already 2 up in his semifinal match against Justin Thomas, he smiled and said, “Just remember, I was beating No. 1 at some point.” Thomas only had to win that match to reach No. 1 in the world, and Watson figured that’s what would happen.It was about the only thing he got wrong Sunday.Watson denied Thomas with a brand of golf that was close to flawless, and then he made the final look as though he were on vacation all along. Watson won his second World Golf Championship with the biggest blowout since the title match switched to 18 holes in 2011, a 7-and-6 victory over Kevin Kisner.http://bangordailynews.com/2018/03/25/s ... mpionship/
