Bubba Watson hoping to cash in on Presidents Cup form

8:12 am on 21 November 2011

The American golfer Bubba Watson will be out to feed off the United States' Presidents Cup victory when he lines up as one of the marquee names in this week's Australian PGA Championship.

Watson will have to recover quicker than most of his team-mates after a night of celebrations.

Bubba will be the only member of the US team to play at Coolum, although a number of the internationals who lost at Royal Melbourne will tee off in Queensland.

One of the stars will be former US PGA champion YE Yang, who will be joined by British Open winner Darren Clarke.

Australian stars Jason Day, Adam Scott, Aaron Baddeley and Robert Allenby have also signed to play.

And International team captain Greg Norman will be swapping his pencils for golf clubs when he competes.
