Is Watson next to give the ‘stink-eye?’

GUANGDONG, China -- As Masters champion Bubba Watson's interview in advance of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions concluded, Keegan Bradley's interview quickly began.

Only, Watson wasn’t done with the media gathering.  He decided to ask Bradley, who is left-eye dominant, about a unique feature of his putting routine.

“As one of your biggest fans, the public would like to know what are you looking at when you're reading putts,” Watson said.

Bradley was quick to take the bait. “Well, if I explained it to you, then I'd have to kill you.  So I don't want to …  give you any of my secrets.”

“Okay, look, I'm going to leave the room,” Watson persisted. “You tell the rest of the world why you're doing that and whatever you're doing when you do that?”

Bradley wouldn’t budge. “Listen, it's the stink eye; don't get in the way of it,” he said. “It will burn you.”

Watson then wondered if Phil Mickelson, Bradley’s frequent practice round and Ryder Cup partner, would adopt the habit.

“He was actually doing it today,” Bradley said.

“Since he's left handed, does he go the other way?” Watson said.

“ Yeah, he goes the other way.  Thank you, Bubba,” Bradley said, and the interview – at last that portion of it – was over.
