Double doesn't slow Watson

Bubba Watson birdies 15th in Round 2 of HSBC

In the second round of the 2013 World Golf Championships - HSBC Champions, Bubba Watson hits his approach shot on the par-4 15th hole to 5 feet then sinks the putt for birdie.

The par-4 10th hole at Sheshan International plays at just over 400 yards, making it one of the shorter two-shotters on the course, but one of the world's longest hitters ran into a little trouble there Friday.

Bubba Watson took a double-bogey six to open his back nine Friday but carded four birdies on his last six holes to shoot a 3-under 69 and become the first player in the clubhouse at 7 under after two rounds of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

"I made a double on No. 10, a quick double after being in the middle of the fairway, but then I made some good putts, some good quality shots, and finished up strong," Watson said.

The four-time TOUR winner hasn't picked up another title since his triumph at the 2012 Masters Tournament, a streak of 33 starts that features 18 top-25 finishes.

" We've still got two more days," Watson said. "Two more days, a lot could happen. I could be dead last by the end of the week. Right now I'm just taking it with stride and hopefully come out and make some putts and hit the ball just as could."
