In Fo­cus

A pic­to­rial re­view of the last 30 days from around the world.

Bubba Wat­son picked up his sec­ond vic­tory in as many weeks and his sec­ond ca­reer World Golf Cham­pi­onship, just one week be­fore the Mas­ters. With a win at the WGC-Dell Tech­nol­ogy Match Play at Austin, Texas, peo­ple start to call him a favuorite to win the year’s first Ma­jor. Wat­son is also, of course, a two-time Mas­ters win­ner, who knows his way around Au­gusta Na­tional.

“I’m not a favourite. I’m go­ing to def­i­nitely say that. I’m not a favourite,” Wat­son joked. “I don’t want any­body to talk to me that week. Let me just fo­cus on what I’ve got to do. I’m not go­ing to play well that week, so no­body talks to me.”

Ac­tu­ally, Wat­son is among the favourites for the year’s first Ma­jor, listed on one web­site at 16/1 at the West­gate Las Ve­gas Su­peBook, just be­hind the likes of Tiger Woods, Dustin John­son, Jor­dan Spi­eth and Rory McIl­roy.
