As I chronicled here, ferocious swinging Bubba Watson was the third biggest story of last week, next to David Toms’s impressive victory and The Golf Channel’s coup in securing exclusive cable rights to PGA play in 2007. Besides being mentioned by The Golf Blog, how do you know you’ve generated some buzz in the golf world? Well, you get a whole article devoted to you by Golf World’s Tim Rosaforte, who was awarded The Best Golf Beat writer by TGB for 2006 (see here).

As usual, Rosaforte’s article’s great (see here). Here’s a flavor:

“At the Sony, four of his drives in the final round traveled over 360 yards. At the 12th, he was two yards shy of breaking the 400-yard barrier. The scary thing: He only missed three fairways in the final round, shot 65 and finished fourth.

“Watson is more than a circus act experiencing his 15 minutes. He is the reason why Tiger Woods went to graphite and why Mickelson was experimenting with a 47-inch shaft this off-season. Watson is the future. He is 6-foot-3, 180 pounds of elasticity, and he didn’t appear the least bit nervous on the weekend, finishing with an eagle on Sunday for a check of $244,800 that represented job security.”
