WGC-Cadillac Championship 2012: Justin Rose Captures Title After Bubba Watson Falters

After leading for almost the entirety of the first three rounds of the WGC-Cadillac Championship, Bubba Watson shot a two-over 74 on Sunday, collapsing and allowing Justin Rose to storm in front and take the trophy. Watson was two strokes ahead of Rose entering fourth round play, but Watson shot five bogeys to just three birdies, which is the formula for blowing a lead on Sunday.

The story of the day, however, was Tiger Woods, who had been out of contention, withdrawing due to an Achilles injury. Without Woods there, the end of the tournament lacked drama. Rose didn't exactly light the world on fire to win — he shot just two-under, but no one made a late charge to push him. He finished at -16, Watson at -15 and Rory McIlroy finished in third place at -14, shooting a five-under for the day.

Tiger Woods Injury: Woods Withdraws From WGC-Cadillac Championship

Tiger Woods withdrew from the 2012 WGC-Cadillac Championship with an apparent leg injury. He played through 11 holes, hitting three bogeys before leaving the course in his car with his leg covered in ice packs.

Woods didn't appear to be himself on Sunday, wincing through pain throughout the day and even switching golf shoes between the 9th and 10th holes. The last time he pulled out of a tournament was one year ago at the Players Championship.

At the moment, few details on the injury are known. Keegan Bradley and Justin Rose are tied atop the leaderboard at the moment through the front nine at 16-under. Rory McIlroy is right behind at 15-under.

WGC-Cadillac Championship 2012: Bubba Watson Takes Lead, Tiger Woods Seven Shots Back After Day 2

Bubba Watson overtook Adam Scott atop the leaderboard at the 2012 WGC-Cadillac Championship on Friday, shooting 10-under for the round. He made birdie or eagle on 10 of 18 holes to finish up the day at 12-under overall, two strokes ahead of Scott. Justin Rose moved into second place with an 8-under round to move up to 11-under for the tournament.

Tiger Woods had a decent day, shooting 5-under. He slipped one stroke off the lead from where he started the day, though Watson was admittedly magnificent on Day 2. Woods birdied three of his first five holes, but he couldn't quite maintain the blistering pace, recording birdies on two of his remaining 13 holes.

Martin Kaymer was the biggest mover of the day, taking over 28 spots on the leaderboard with an 8-under performance to finish the day at 7-under for the tournament. Pete Hanson of Sweden finished the day three strokes off of Watson in fourth place after shooting 7-under.
