Bubba's tribute

US rookie Bubba Watson last night revealed the mix of pain and patriotism that motivates him as he prepares to represent his country for the first time at this level.

Watson (31) was emotional as he told the media his dad, a victim of cancer and a Vietnam veteran, had only three months to live.

"I'm playing this for him and representing the United States," said Watson.
