Watson fires 62, leads after 36 at Doral

Pink shaft and all, Bubba Watson fired a second round score of 10-under 62, to vault to the lead at the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral Golf Resort & Spa.

The 62 was also Watson's career low round, since joining the PGA Tour in 2006.

His performance today, took him to 12-under overall. One shot ahead of Justin Rose, who fired an 8-under round himself today. And two ahead of Adam Scott, who finished at 10-under.

Though it was Watson's 62 that stole the show in Miami in round two.

Starting his round today off No. 10, Watson quickly got off to a great start.

He birdied four of his first five holes. Then added one more birdie to the card on the par-four, 16th to make the turn at five-under.

Watson didn't let up there. He started his back nine with another birdie on the easy par-five, first. Followed by another circle on the score card on No. 2.

His only slip today was at the par-three, 4th. His tee ball flew the green long and right into the thick rough.

Watson played his second up onto the green, leaving himself nearly 18 feet to salvage par -- Which he was unable to do.

He quickly bounced back with back-to-back birdies on No. 5 & 6. Followed by an eagle on the par-five, 8th.

The long hitter from Bagdad, Florida equalled his front-nine score of 31 with another 31 on his back-nine, en-route to his 10-under, 62.

Watson talked a little about his performance in his post round press conference.

"You know, this golf course doesn't really suit me. My eye lines‑‑ it's tough. It's tough for me. Not a big fan of No. 18. I normally play it really bad. Played it 1‑under so far. Just one of those things, I've been hitting the ball really well, carried over, made some putts today."

"I made a few putts yesterday and today, just feeding off of Rosey and Mark played good, he shot 2‑under around this golf course." Watson continued.

"We all were just feeding off each other, having fun, joking around, picking on each other and somehow we made putts and at the end of the day we all shot a pretty good number. "
