Bubba claims victory in Torrey Pines

Bubba Watson kept his cool to claim his second US PGA Tour title on Sunday (January 30th) in the Farmers Insurance Open.

His victory on the Torrey Pines South Course certainly wasn't a straightforward one, with Phil Mickelson providing his strongest competition.

But the 32-year-old held off the challenge of the left hander and the on-form Venezuelan rookie Jhonattan Vegas to secure the win in his golf clothing.

The American finished on 16-under par and with Vegas hitting water on the 18th, only Mickelson could deny him victory.

But the former world number one needed to hit an eagle on the last and despite a valiant effort, he came up one shot short.

The result lifts Watson up 15 places to 18th in the latest world rankings, while Mickelson's second-place finish leaves him in 5th.

Tiger Woods finished in a tie for 44th position in the tournament, which constitutes his worst Tour opener since his first full season in 1997
