Report

Bubba Watson began the week with a front nine of 28, he ended it with his second title of the season and doubled his WGC haul after a 7&6 thrashing of Kevin Kisner.

The final itself was a pathetic affair as Kisner lost the first five holes after struggling with all parts of his game. If there was a mistake to be made Kisner made it and Watson sailed serenely on with his trademark big hitting and shotmaking. That said he reached the turn in just two under to sit six holes to the good.

When Kisner did hole a long one, for par at the 10th, Watson made birdie but then he did win his first hole with his first birdie of the final at the next.

But it was all over at the next when Watson got up and down for the second biggest margin of victory but Tiger Woods’ 8&7 demolition of Stewart Cink in 2008 was over 36 holes.

In the morning Kisner, who also beat Matt Kuchar before thrashing Ian Poulter in the knockout stages, had enjoyed a brilliant battle with Alex Noren as both players holed everything early on before the American edged through at the first extra hole. Watson stopped Justin Thomas from becoming the World No 1 with a 3&2 victory.

The Swede pocketed bundles of Ryder Cup points by beating Thomas 5&3 in the play-off match.
