Exhausted Bubba back to defend Zurich Classic

As if winning a rollercoaster Masters event wasn't draining enough, Bubba Watson has had to deal with all the various media obligations that come with the green jacket, the insatiable press hunger for a bit of Bubba. That's not even to mention the fact that he's a new father, barely a month after adopting his one-month old son Caleb.

"I'm pretty exhausted for this week," Watson admitted on Wednesday. "I've been playing pretty solid all year; my worst finish is 18th. So the advantage is I'm just playing good right now."

And with all the new demands on his time, he'd be forgiven for a bit of time off, as Luke Donald did at the tail-end of last season to be with his wife and new-born.

But not Bubba, who's determined to continue where he left off and defend the championship he won last year, the third PGA Tour win in his career at that point.

"I thought it was the right thing to do," Watson said..

"Some people were saying that, you know, I could take time off, spend time with family, but I just felt like it was the right thing to do for everybody involved with the tournament, the volunteers, everybody that's put the effort in for this week, the charities that are affected by this tournament.

"Just as defending champ, I felt like it was right for me to be here. Winning the Masters, I know it's going to be even harder. It's going to be different, tired, all those things, but all great things at the end."

Joining Watson will be a strong field including Webb Simpson, Keegan Bradley, Luke Donald, Steve Stricker, Ernie Els and Graeme McDowell amongst many other stars of the game.
