Bubba Watson could miss next months Travelers championship

Watson announced on his social media pages that he has a torn meniscus and will be out for four to six weeks.

CONNECTICUT, USA — Three-time Travelers Championship winner Bubba Watson could miss this year's tournament as he recovers from a knee injury.

Watson announced on his social media pages that he has a torn meniscus and will be out for four to six weeks.

The fan-favorite said in a tweet, “Hope to be back soon,” but with the Travelers Championship set to begin the week of June 20, that only gives him about a month to recover and get back in golfing shape.

Watson won the Connecticut tournament in 2010 (his first PGA Tour win), ‘15, and most recently in ‘18 after a wild finish. Facing a six-stroke deficit, Watson shot a 7-under-par 63 in the final round, taking the outright lead with a birdie on No. 18. He won the event by three shots.

On Monday, Watson pulled out of the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas.
