Bubba Watson didn't just wear high tops in the NBA All-Star celebrity game, he wore these G/FORE high top golf shoes all week while winning the 2018 Genesis Open.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

In the two years since his last victory, Bubba Watson endured an undisclosed injury and pondered retirement. Now he's a PGA Tour champion for a 10th time, joining an elite list of three-time winners at the annual Los Angeles-based event.

Kudos to short hitting Kevin Na who finished 2nd at the Genesis Open this week. Na ranks 116th in driving distance with an average of 289.2 yards. Winner Bubba Watson ranks 11th with 313.3 yards and Tony Finau, who finished tied with Na in 2nd place, leads the tour in driving distance with an average of 329.1 yards.

Victory march down the 18th hole for Bubba Watson. Third career win at Riv. First win since this event two years ago.

Best score by round at the Genesis Open. Round 1 66 (-5)Patrick Cantlay and Tony Finau; Round 2 66 (-5) Graeme McDowell and Austin Cook; Round 3 64 (-7) Dustin Johnson; Round 4 66 (-5) Adam Hadwin. Seems that a 7,300 yard golf course can still be very challenging for the best players in the world.

In what might wind up being the shot of the tournament, Bubba Watson turned a potential bogey into a birdie by holing his greenside bunker shot on the par-3 14th to move two strokes in front of the other contenders.
