Bubba Watson Passes Kidney Stone Before Northern Trust Open Win

Bubba Watson won his second Northern Trust Open in three years on Sunday, and revealed afterward that he passed a kidney stone earlier in the same week.

This is the second time Watson, 37, has passed a kidney stone in the last five years: the first time was in New Orleans, after he took a bathroom break on the 16th hole. This time, it happened between Pebble Beach and Riviera.

“So Sunday, I missed the cut at Pebble. And that Sunday morning playing with the kids, I had to go take a bathroom break and same thing: red liquid came out. I said, ‘This ain’t right,'” stated Watson.

“So we called the doctor, we called the tournament here. They set me up with a place. I landed on Monday morning, went, did a CT scan and 30 minutes after the CT scan, again, just downing water, thinking it’s going to be the same thing. Five years ago, he said there was one more in my system and obviously it decided this week. My baby came out, I guess. I’m already a head case, so my thoughts of seeing red liquids coming out, I thought I was dying, basically, without pain.”

Watson won the Open by one stroke over Adam Scott and Jason Kokrak. He recorded five birdies to post 15-under-par for the tournament. In the same busy week, Watson also filmed a cameo for his favorite show ‘Girl Meets World’ and attended the Saturday night Clippers-Warriors game, all in Los Angeles.

He also said he received a text message from Warriors star Steph Curry shortly before his tee time on Sunday, which said that he wants to teach Watson’s son Caleb how to shoot a basketball.
