Bubba Watson says he'll retire from golf if he ever reaches No. 1
Bubba Watson will walk away on top, he says, if he ever reaches the pinnacle of the sport.
Here are the current OWGR numbers for the top five golfers in the world.
Why is this relevant? I'll let Bubba Watson explain.
"(Winning the Hero World Challenge is) very big for my career personally, but I don't see it as 10 (wins)," said Watson on Sunday. "I need two, or nine, that's what it is. I still need two more still. But I will give you this though: If I ever become No. 1 in the world, ever somehow, I'm walking away. I'm going to walk away on top. But let's be honest, nobody here's voting on that, right? Everybody thinks I'm not going to do that."
OK. That's a pretty strange thing to say, right?
Watson is pretty far away from being No. 1 despite only having three golfers in front of him. He'd have to go on a Jordan Spieth-like tear to start 2016 to sniff the top spot. Even that might not get it done. I can see it, though. He wins three times before the Masters, takes Augusta again to get to No. 1 and gets asked about in the post-Masters press conference.
Oh, I was just kidding, y'all.
