Bubba Watson blows up on caddie Ted Scott on way to triple bogey

Bubba WatsonBubba Watson hit consecutive poor shots that cost him an excellent chance at winning the Travelers Championship on Sunday, and he seemed to blame caddie Ted Scott for his mistakes.

Watson entered the par-3 16th with the lead, but he triple-bogeyed the hole to send himself three spots down the leaderboard. Watson hit into the water on his first shot and took a penalty and drop.

“Water, it’s in the water, that club,” Watson barked at caddie Ted Scott.

Watson then overshot the green on his drop and needed three putts to hole out.

“That’s the right yardage?!” Watson said after hitting past the green, per Eye on Golf.

And then Watson was pretty upset after missing a long double-bogey putt.
