Bubba Watson and Matt Wallace reign Supreme on Sunday

by Maura Hutchinson

Summertime is well and truly upon us.  Beautiful weather, a win for England and some great golf made a gorgeous Sunday even brighter. Check out the big winners of the Travelers Championship and the BMW International Open. Plus learn why three seems to be the lucky number for the winners this weekend who both use the Titleist Pro V1x golf ball.

Bubba Watson is riding high after collecting his third win of the season. Winning the Travelers Championship for the third time after an incredible final round 7-under-63. With his latest victory Watson becomes the first player on the PGA Tour to win three times this season.

“I feel like this is my home course,” Watson told reporters on Sunday. “As soon as they put the schedule up, I sign up for this. I want to come back here.”

The scenario of Sunday was very similar to Watson’s last win here in 2015. England’s Paul Casey began the final round with a four-stroke lead, after an amazing Saturday round that saw the 40-year-old card a 62. But Casey was unable to continue the good form during the final round and ended up signing for a 72 to finish in a four-way tie for second.

“It was a fun round of golf and I got lucky that he [Casey] didn’t have his best stuff,” said Watson.

Here’s a look at the gear that helped the 39-year-old claim the Travelers once again:

Driver: PING G400 LST
Fairway Woods: PING G
Irons: PING iBlade; PING S55
Wedges: PING Glide 2.0
Putter: PING PLD Anser
Ball: Titleist Pro V1x

Over on the European Tour England’s Matt Wallace picked up his second win of 2018 with a flawless bogey-free 65 to claim the BMW International Open. This latest victory marks Wallace’s third career win on the European Tour and moves the 28-year-old up to number 66 in the World Golf Ranking.

“I work hard for this,” Wallace told reporters afterwards. Adding, “I believe I can do it. I want to go further. I want to keep building on this. Obviously this gives me a lot of confidence to go on and play well and I want to kick on and hopefully do this in the bigger events from now on.”

Someone else who was working hard in Germany this weekend was Danish player Thorbjorn Olesen who shot an incredible (and record-breaking) 61 on Sunday. The lowest-ever round recorded in BMW International Open history!
