Bubba Watson, the two-time Masters champion who at one point was ranked as high as No. 2 in the world, reportedly is set to join the Saudi-backed LIV Golf series, the breakaway tour that continues to add well-known names to its roster. Watson, 43, has been sidelined since late May due to a torn meniscus, disclosing the injury after contending early at the PGA Championship before finishing tied for 30th. According to United Kingdom-based The Telegraph, which first reported on Watson’s PGA Tour exit, the well-known left-hander is poised to make his LIV debut in the event outside Boston over Labor Day weekend. An official announcement by LIV Golf is expected this weekend; the tour plays its second U.S.-based event (and third overall) at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster in New Jersey starting Friday. Watson has 12 career PGA Tour wins, including triumphs at the Masters in 2012 and ’14.
