Bubba Watson was boo'd on the famous 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale after remarks he made about the course.


Prior to the Waste Management Phoenix Open, the two-time major winner expressed bluntly his dislike for the course, despite finishing runner-up in the past two years and fifth in 2012, adding that he was only at the event because of his sponsors.

“I don't like it,” he said. “I'm not going to PC it. I don't like it at all. Ping is here in Phoenix, Arizona. It's nice to be back and working on some equipment with them.

“Oakley is a big sponsor here. Stance Socks is a big one this year with the 16-hole socks. So obviously I'm here because of my sponsors and everything, and so I love coming here.” The world No.5 added that course changes haven’t add to his fondness of the event, which usually attracts 500,000 fans over the four tournament days. “I didn't see any reason to change it,” he said. “It just seems like all they did is just tighten it up. Scores didn't change. It just makes it goofier and tougher, which is not fun for us. We came here for a reason. We came here because we want to play golf and shoot good scores. I didn't see there is a reason to change something that's not broke.”
