Bubba Watson records second 10 of the day at No. 12

Bubba Watson met the same fate as Kevin Na on No. 12 at Augusta. Each carded a 10 on the famous Amen Corner hole on Sunday.

There are low numbers to be had at Augusta National on Sunday. The leaders are all starting off strong and quite a few players appear to be headed towards rounds in the 60s. But as we've seen already, there are also some big numbers on the course.

Earlier it was Kevin Na carding a 10 at No. 12. And just about an hour later, Bubba Watson met the same fate. He, too, recorded a 10 -- that's 7-over -- at No. 12, following in Na's footsteps. So of course we set it to Yakety Sax.

Let's pull one thing out of that video. If you're a weekend player, odds are you've done something like this before. We call it ping-ponging the green.


This is why 12 is so scary. Misjudge the wind, mishit the tee shot, or just get unlucky and one is liable to post a big number. Once one ball finds the drink, it always seems like another follows ... and sometimes another after that.

In one hole, Bubba went from 1-over for the tournament -- and already out of contention anyway -- to 8-over for the tournament. Something to keep in mind as the leaders make it to Amen Corner. The potential for disaster lurks.
