Genesis Open Bubba Watson considered retiring last year
Two-time Masters winner Bubba Watson said he was "close to retiring" last year as he claimed his 10th PGA tour title at the Genesis Open.
Watson shot a two-under 69 in the final round to win by two strokes from fellow Americans Kevin Na and Tony Finau.
The 39-year-old was not selected for the winning United States team at the 2016 Ryder Cup and is ranked 117th.
