2013 U.S. Open: Bubba Watson believes Merion will win by the end of the week
Bubba Watson spoke with the media after finishing 1-over par following his first round of the U.S. Open at Merion on Thursday. Here’s a portion of the transcript:
Do you think that Merion is winning so far?
Well, there’s a couple of guys under par. By the end of the week Merion is going to win.
What was the iron you had off 15?
15 is — what’s 15? That’s a dog leg hole? I hit 4-rion off that tee. And I hit 2-iron off 16.
Do you change you game plan at all from today to tomorrow?
Well, it just depends on how the weather is going to be. No, I’m not going to change my game plan. The game plan will change, obviously if into the wind, downwind holes, change my strategy a little bit. I three-putted because I thought No. 1 was going to be faster than that. I left it short and three-putted.
