What he said: During the Wednesday practice round prior to the PGA Championship at Valhalla, the PGA of America staged a long-drive competition for charity similar to the one Jack Nicklaus won in 1963 and 1964.
The booming drives, of course, were a hit with fans, and players seemed to enjoy uncorking one once they reached the 10th tee.
All the players except one Gerry Lester Watson. Bubba, the tour's longest driver, pulled a 3-iron from his Ping staff bag and somberly struck a shot with that club instead.
As he explained later to the media:
I'm there to play golf, not to hit it far. I've got to practice. I've never been to the course. I don't need to worry about a long drive on the 10th hole.
We're trying to win a great championship. There's no reason to make something up in the middle of a practice round like that. This is just right there in the middle of your practice round while you're trying to see the course. Just kind of weird to me.
Why it's here: Bubba Watson's comments are a classic example of the unpredictable, often odd and sometimes prickly remarks the long-hitting lefty sometimes makes. He lands in the No. 7 spot because, sadly, there's not a huge element of surprise here.
