B had rented and came to the tournament to
visit with friends and to be part of what’s be-
come a springtime tradition for the family. She
also wanted to spend some time with the wives
and girlfriends of potential Ryder Cup players.
“That’s pretty cool,” said Love’s agent, Mac
Love plans to return to the PGA Tour at the
Wells Fargo Championship.
Masters champion Bubba Watson has put
his lakefront summer home in North Carolina
up for sale.
Watson and his wife, Angie, had spent recent
summers at the 5,000-square foot home on High
Rock Lake in Lexington, N.C., since buying the
house in 2009. According to reports, Watson had
renovated the house, adding an outdoor kitchen
among other updates.
“This off-season, I thought there might be
something to anchoring it,” Kuchar said. “I
gave it a legitimate shot and it didn’t work out
for me. So I went to putting with the putter at
my forearms, which I did all last year. I opened
my stance a little bit. Crouched down a little
more over the ball. I feel like it locks me in.”
Prior to The Masters, Watson listed the
house for $1.5 million, above the $1.1 million
he paid for the home.
Kuchar works with putting guru Mike Shan-
non at Sea Island, Ga. Shannon, Kuchar said,
believes in locking the elbows tight to the body
to allow the bigger muscles to control the put-
ting stroke. It’s more comfortable for Kuchar.
He putted well at Doral and again at The
Masters, where he finished tied for third.
Watson had joined the Old North State Club
in nearby New London, N.C., with the stipulation
he could play in the club championship. Watson
won the club championship there last summer,
shooting 29 on one nine in the process.
Speaking of The Masters, Kuchar has taken
time to reflect on his near-miss at Augusta
National. It was the first time he had seriously
threatened to win a major championship. He
was tied for the lead Sunday afternoon when
he eagled the par- 5 15th, ripping a 250-yard
3-wood into the green, but a bogey at No. 16 for
the second straight day proved costly.
After trying a belly putter through the early
part of the season, Matt Kuchar has gone back
to anchoring his putter along his left forearm.
It’s the setup he’s used so successfully in
Kuchar used the belly putter through the
first round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship
at Doral last month before deciding he’d tried it
“Sunday night was a tough night’s sleep,”
Kuchar said. “We got back (home) to Sea Island
... and I figured it would be great to have a night
in my own bed and it was not an easy night’s
sleep. There’s all the things replaying in my
head as to being two shots back at the end of
the tournament, being that close.
“It was an exciting place to have a chance. I
kept replaying in my mind all the great shots A
