Why Bubba Watson could be booted out of LIV Golf

Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson has revealed he would step aside from playing in LIV Golf events should his teammates tell him he's 'not good enough' anymore. 

Watson is the team captain of the RangeGoats which comprises of 2023 individual champion Talor Gooch, Harold Varner III and Thomas Pieters. 

The 44-year-old has struggled for form since returning from a knee injury that forced him out of action for more than eight months. 

Through 13 events, Watson's best individual finish came when he posted a top-10 at LIV Golf's stop at Cedar Ridge Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

Watson finished 36th out of 48 players on the money list. 

The RangeGoats finished fourth in the team standings through the regular season, which means the team gets a bye for the first round of the season-ending $50m team championship at Trump National Doral. 

Watson told reporters: "I told my team if they don't think I am good enough to play, they can kick me out and we will put another good golfer in my place." 

He added:

"I am going to play until they kick me out. I love helping the young guys. They are all trying to be better and also better at golf. I get to influence three golfers in life, they are all parents and young dads. I want to be there for them and if they have a problem, I want to be able to help them."

Watson previously explained his outlandish plans for the RangeGoats. 

He has a 10-year plan that would eventually see his side have their own stadium, training facility and academy for junior golfers. 

"We want a home ourselves," he previously said. "We want our own venue, we want to host an event there just like any sports team."
