Bubba Watson has long been one of the bombers on the PGA Tour. He can also be one heck of a showman.

During Wednesday’s pro-am at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Watson busted out his pink Ping driver — yes, driver — on the famous par-3 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale.

With an open stance and about a ¾-swing, Watson makes contact and sends the ball flying. Figures he would stick his shot on the green.

A smattering of fans were on hand in the arena to witness the feat, which is pretty remarkable considering from the tips that hole plays not much longer than about 160 yards.

During his first round on Thursday, Watson made par on No. 16 after his tee shot landed on the left fringe, about hole high to the back-pin location.
