VIDEO: Bubba Watson Came to Rickie Fowler's Defense After Fan's Comment at the Memorial Tournament

By Michael Shamburger

Rickie Fowler had a tough opening round at the Memorial Tournament. Fowler, who played with Bubba Watson and Patrick Reed, finished at three-over for the day, missed a birdie putt on the 18th hole. After the miss, someone in the crowd said something not so nice. Whatever was said wasn’t picked up by the mics, but caught the attention of both Fowler and Bubba Watson, who immediately started walking that direction asking, “Who said it? Not so tough now are you?”

While Bubba may not be one of the most loved guys on Tour, he will definitely step up if someone in the crowd pushes the envelope a little too far.

Watson finished the day at even and Reed finished at four-under.
