Bubba Watson splits up with PGA Tour caddie Ted Scott after 15 years

Bubba Watson has decided to part ways with his long-term caddie Ted Scott after the pair had formed a successful team for 15 years on the PGA Tour.

The explosive Lefty has become one of the most recognisable figures on the PGA Tour and since he joined it in 2006, he has notched up 12 wins alongside Scott.

Watson posted a heartfelt message on his social media platforms and alluded to the fact that it was not only a decision based on golf, but also on life in general.

"After 15 incredible years together, Teddy and I have decided to end our on-course partnership. We recently came to the decision after some deep talks, not only about golf but life," wrote Watson on Instagram.

"When we met I don’t think we ever imagined how much we would experience together. Teddy deserves more credit than anyone can imagine for our success on the golf course, but I am just as grateful for his friendship and the way he has helped me grow as a person.

"It has been a blessing and privilege to have you by my side.  I know you’ll do great things whether it's coaching, caddying or regaining the World Foosball Champion title."

Not only did they reach double figures in terms of PGA Tour wins, but the 42-year-old won The Masters in 2012 and 2014 and has competed for Team USA in four Ryder Cups.
