After last year, everyone thought Gerry "Bubba" Watson gave Americans a true hope for American golf. His near miss at the PGA Championship gave so many hope, alongside strong play from last year.
However, after a hot first few weeks, Watson's season fizzled to a disappointing end. His stats were the same, but the buzz of his season wasn't. He wasn't a late-season event contender. He was just like Mark Wilson: strong out of the gate but tumbling halfway.
Is there a reason for the debacle? Of course there is.
