Team Watson gets eagle in 23 seconds

Bubba Watson teamed up with his caddie and manager to set the unofficial record for the fastest eagle in golf.

The American is currently in China for the Shenzhen International, which has been marred by thunderstorms.

During one of the breaks, the trio set themselves up on the 503 yard par five at Genzon Golf Club.

The big-hitting left-hander was able to take much of the meat out of the hole with a monstrous drive on a ridiculous line straight over the water.

Watson’s ball landed in a bunker and caddie Ted Scott ran over and played a delightful bunker shot, leaving manager Randall Wells with a five-footer for an eagle, which he holed, cueing celebrations.

It all sounds a bit unbelievable, but you can watch it here for yourself…

Last week, the European Tour showed three Frenchman break the official Guinness World Record for the fastest birdie on a 500-yard hole, draining the final putt in 34.8 seconds.

Unfortunately for Watson’s trio, the was no official present from the Gunness group. However, there is video evidence, so fans will have to wait and see if the record stands.
