Watson long and accurate so far

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

DORAL, Fla. -- Since 2006, no one has made more eagles on the PGA TOUR than Bubba Watson. And in each of his three career wins, Watson led the field in both those categories all except once when he was 30th in greens in regulation in Hartford.

This week, Watson has just one eagle -- on the par-5 eighth during the second round -- but he has very similar numbers to his wins, ranking first in driving distance and second in greens in regulation here at TPC Blue Monster at Doral.

Tournament Distance Greens in Regulation
2010 Travelers Championship 321.3 yards (1st) 70.8 percent (30th)
2011 Farmers Insurance Open 316.6 yards (1st) 81.9 percent (1st)
2011 Zurich Classic 331.4 yards (1st) 80.6 percent (1st)
2012 WGC-Cadillac Championship 322.5 yards (1st) 72.2 percent (T2)
