After a masterful putt from off the back of the treacherous 12th green during the final round of The Masters on Sunday, Bubba Watson and his caddie Ted Scott had an interesting conversation after Bubba marked his ball 2 feet from the cup.
With a second green jacket still hanging in the balance, Scott didn’t have the slippery par putt on his mind.
“I made the decision that next year is my last year,” Crenshaw said. “It is funny, on Amen Corner on the 13th hole on the first day, I hadn’t told Carl yet, but I said, ‘Carl, I’ve been thinking about this for a long time and next year would be a good year.’ I’m very, very happy with it. I’ve thought about it for a long time. A lot of times I thought that I could have stepped down earlier. It is hard. Very hard. But I have been so fortunate. I have to look at the good things that have happened. I have to pull over and watch. I’m very resigned to being an encourager for everybody as much as I can.”
