SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Bubba Watson repeated that he doesn't like TPC Scottsdale's Stadium Course. He also said he loves everything else about the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

"I will have to say, I have to apologize," Watson said Friday, two days after criticizing the renovated course and saying he was only playing the tournament out of loyalty to his sponsors.

"I used the wrong words. I have nothing against the fans and the tournament. The fans have been great. I love coming here. I've lived here every winter for eight years. This is a beautiful place. And the reason why I'm here is because of the excitement around this golf tournament. The fans have been great.
