Bubba Watson took credit for news anchor Robin Meade's amazing shot onto the eighth green at yesterday's Grand Slam Pro-Am at Port Royal Golf Course in Southhampton, Bermuda. Watson looked on as the bubbly morning news host landed the ball just three feet from the cup —earning her the top prize for the closest approach to that hole — after only three lessons from The Masters champion. I don't know what was more spectacular, the placing of the ball or seeing Meade bounce around in her skimpy black outfit after she thought the ball went into the hole. Watson called it, the "greatest shot I ever witnessed, the greatest shot I ever coached." Meade and her team won this round with a total of 54. The Grand Slam of Golf tees off on Tuesday.  The other pros who will be playing the tropical course are Webb Simpson, Keegan Bradley and Padraig Harrington. Watson said it was nice to see someone of Meade's stature taking up the sport and the pair have become  fast friends via Twitter. "She played a lot better her third time out on the course," he said.  "Especially when I instructed her real good." When not spending time on the course or with his wife, Angie, and their son, Caleb, Watson said he and Bradley have been defacing the "fathead" posters of the players which adorn the clubhouse walls.
