He's got a long way to go to become the most famous Watson in golf, but he's already far and away the most famous Bubba.

Bubba Watson led the PGA Tour team to victory in the latest installment of the Wendy's 3-Tour Challenge, besting trios from the Champions Tour and the LPGA. Here are the rosters of the three squads:

PGA Tour: Watson, Dustin Johnson, Boo Weekley
Champions: Nick Price, Bernhard Langer, Kenny Perry
LPGA: Cristie Kerr, Suzann Pettersen, Natalie Gulbis

The format was two-player best ball, allowing each team to dump one score each hole. And while it would seem that the PGA Tour would own this event, that's not quite the case. The spry young gents have won the event eight times, while both the Champions and the LPGA have six wins apiece.

This year, it appeared the oldsters would take away the title, as they held a four-shot lead after 11 holes. But the PGA Tour put on a charge, capped by Johnson's eagle on the par 5 17th that erased the lead. Then, on the 18th hole, Watson rolled in an 18-foot birdie putt. Langer's 12-foot following putt to force a playoff ran awry, and that was it.

"Having a chance to make that putt is something you dream about," Watson said afterward. "When you actually make it, you don’t know what to do." He's getting more comfortable with winning, though.

The PGA cats won $500,000, while the Champions guys won $270,000, and the ladies, in third place, took home $230,000.
