Bubba Watson wins Farmers Open Golf

Bubba Watson has won the Farmers Open at Torrey Pines, California.

In a dramatic finish he beat Phil Mickelson by one shot, to finish on 16 under par, and claiming his second PGA Tour victory.

Watson came to the final hole just one shot clear of both Jhonattan Vegas and Phil Mickelson.Vegas made a bogey six after he found the water just short of the green on the 18th, while Watson closed with a birdie.

In the group behind, Mickelson knew he had to sink his third shot for an eagle on the 18th to force a play-off, but the shot finished just a few feet short of the hole, confirming Watson as the winner

"It's hard every time you look at it (winning)” Said Watson.

"You've got Phil, you've got the guy that won last week, Vegas, you've got all these guys up the leaderboard that have won before and any bad step and they're going to catch you.”

"All I thought about today was getting my head down and just playing my game, I birdied every par-five and it helped me out today."

Tiger Woods who has previously won seven times at Tory Pines had his worst ever finish at Torrey Pines, finishing a disappointing tied 44th. He shot 75 on the final day to finish at 1 under for the tournament.

Woods, who struggled with his putting admitted that he still had work to do on his game
