Omega Grey Side Of The Moon Meteorite
"My caddie thought I couldn't do it because the lie was so bad, and I told him to watch this. So I pulled it off, hitting nine iron from like 170 something yards and it hooked low about 50 yards.
By the sounds of it, being Watson's caddie must be a job performed while watching through the cracks of your fingers but his bagman Ted Scott has clearly learned when to trust his client's unique sorcery.
Though while their response to being crowned Masters winners couldn't be more different, there is one aspect of Lyle and Watson's wins that will be forever linked in history. Both men sealed victory by producing a stunning recovery shot to the last green.
"They give you a garment bag with 2012 Masters champ on it and it's been sitting in that bag in the back of my closet at our house in?Scottsdale, I haven't seen it.
IT'S the most coveted item of clothing in sport, so you'd think the Green Jacket would have been stuck to Bubba Watson's back like a second skin over the past 12 months.

This coming from a guy who taught himself the game and still doesn't use a swing coach.
"Then there was No.11 on Friday. I was three under at the time so if I didn't pull the shot off, I could be back on the cut number.
Yet the man himself brushed it off as nothing special. "Hooked it about 40 yards, hit about 15 feet off the ground until it got under the tree and then started rising. Pretty easy."
But the unorthodox US Masters champion has always been a little different.
"There was another one on the seventh much earlier in the week that doesn't get talked about where, again, I was in the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Black Dial
"I wore it for a media day up in New York and I wore it one time for a photoshoot for Augusta.
"I had a terrible nestly lie and I had a gap that was only like five feet wide, and my caddie said, 'No, just chip out'.
Yet when it comes to the one thing that would guarantee him everyone's attention at parties, sponsors' events or even just walking down the street? The 34 year old has been surprisingly reluctant to put it on.
Watson's low key approach is in stark contrast to many of his fellow Masters champions. Just two weeks ago Sandy Lyle revealed he still pulls on his Green Jacket to entertain dinner guests a whopping 25 years after Larry Mize helped him into it for the first time back in 1988.
"I'd had one on 17 in regulation three holes before when I was tied for the lead and it was off where the patrons walk.
"I know it's there, just because I don't want anybody to steal that thing, but I don't look at it.
Watson said: "Out of respect for the Masters and Augusta National and all their members, I haven't done anything with the jacket.

"But I said, no, I can make this, just watch this. So I hit it on the green through Omega Grey Side Of The Moon Meteorite this gap in these trees, and somehow pulled it off again. In the situation, obviously the play off shot was the most important and the most exciting, but the other ones were difficult, just nobody cared what Bubba Watson was doing those other days or other shots."

From the garish pink driver he wields to belt golf balls further than some people go on holiday to the outrageously inventive recovery shots that haul him out of bother when all seems lost. Bubba stands out from the crowd wherever he plays.
But don't confuse Watson's indifferent view with arrogance. It's just he reckons he pulled off a lot more challenging shots that week which will never be remembered in the mists of time.
Surrounded by pine trees with no direct line of sight to the green, he hooked it on to its target.
Watson said: "That was Omega Seamaster Chronograph Ceramic
As his stunned ?opponent Oostuizen said afterwards: "When the ball came out, it looked like a curve ball. ?Unbelievable shot. That shot he hit definitely won him the?tournament."
"I can see the corner of that green garment bag every time I go to get something out of the closet but I don't ever glance at it or anything like that."
Watson added: "It's funny, my caddie tells me to show off for him. He says, 'It's me and you out here. If me and you were playing, you would show off and beat me by 12 shots'.
"I had to hit off hard packed mud over the trees. It seems like I was in the woods a lot.
Lyle's superb seven iron from a fairway bunker on the 18th remains the defining moment of the Scot's career and is still celebrated among the greatest golf shots in history. Now he has Watson's for company in that elite club, after the erratic left hander sprayed a wild tee shot into trees lining the 10th fairway as he battled Louis Oosthuizen in a nerve shredding play off.
