UNITED STATES vice-cap­tain Bubba Wat­son wept like a baby as he and his equally tear­ful skip­per Davis Love III had an emo­tional hug as soon as Ry­der Cup vic­tory over Europe was sealed yes­ter­day. “The last event my dad saw me play was the Ry­der Cup in 2010,” Wat­son said. “Nine days after, my dad passed away. He was in hos­pi­tal with a bunch of IVs (in­tra­venous drips) and dif­fer­ent things in him to keep him breath­ing so he could watch his son. The two great­est things I’ve ever wanted to ac­com­plish in golf was to be a Hall of Famer and be a Ry­der Cup cap­tain,” said Wat­son. “I think Ry­der Cup cap­tain is another form of Hall of Fame”
