If the pattern remains the same, Bubba Watson will be adding a third green jacket to his wardrobe next month.

Watson, the 2012 and 2014 Masters champion has had a successful season so far on the PGA Tour win a win and a second place finish since the middle of February. The Florida native was in Orlando on Tuesday night watching the Magic record a 34-point win over the Brooklyn Nets. 

Watson took to the court at half-time to take part in one of the traditional half-court shots and came as close to finding the net without scoring, as is possible. 

The 37-year-old still has a long way to go though to match the skill of Ryder Cup team mater Matt Kuchar. Earlier this year, Kuchar found the basket with a pitch during a Miami Heat game.
