  • Bubba Watson apologizes for his actions at the PGA Championship

    There have been plenty of major championships that showed the great side of Bubba Watson. Both his Masters wins come to mind, but his impressive play at the 2010 PGA Championship made us realize that this guy might be more than just a long-hitter when he found himself in a playoff with Martin Kaymer.

    This year's PGA was a different story. Bubba spent most of the week complaining about this or that, making some personal statement that nobody really understood during the long-drive competition when he hit 3-iron off the tee despite using driver all four days of the actual tournament, and then complaining on the course about the conditions that everyone else in the field was also dealing with.

    This past weekend saw a lot of great storylines and we are here to give you the good and the bad of it. Here are our winners and losers from the past week in golf.

Villegas' career took a serious hit in 2012 when he made just 15 of 25 cuts and failed to card a single top-10, and while it didn't improve much in 2013, there were signs that he could return to relevance. The 63 that Villegas put together on Sunday at the Wyndham was good enough for a one-shot victory and a fourth PGA Tour win. It also moved Villegas up to 37th on the FedEx Cup points list, important considering the next four weeks of golf and the money to be made if he can continue to play like he did at Sedgefield.
