Watson focusing on Thailand

Home

Following his win at the WGC-HSBC Champions, Bubba Watson is looking forward to next month’s Thailand Golf Championships.

The American was all square with South Africa’s Tim Clark after 72-holes courtesy of a stunning chip-in for an eagle on the final hole.

Watson then rolled in a birdie on the first play-off hole to win the title, taking his 2014 tally to three after his Northern Trust open win in February and The Masters in April.

“Winning internationally has long been a goal of mine, so to break through in Shanghai was a really big deal for me,” revealed the 36-year-old on asiantour.com

“It sets me up great for the Thailand Golf Championship next month. It’s an event I love playing, over a course that sets up really well for me, so hopefully I can make it a case of third time lucky at Amata Spring.”

Joining Watson at Amata Spring will be host of quality players, including defending champion Sergio Garcia, US Open winner Martin Kaymer, former world number one Lee Westwood and four time Major winner Ernie Els.

Meanwhile, 2014 PGA Rookie of the Year, Chesson Hadley, is also eager to play amongst the star-studded field.

“You only have to look at the quality of field for the Thailand Golf Championship to see how important playing in Asia has become,” said the Puerto Rico Open winner.

“I’ve heard so much about the tournament and Thailand as a whole that I’m really looking forward to competing. It would be awesome to end the year with a win.”
