Bubba Watson admits to having panic attacks

January 4, 2013

Bubba Watson revealed to reporters Wednesday that he's suffered from panic attacks three times over the years.

Watson is preparing to play at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, which starts Friday. He was asked about fellow golfer Charlie Beljan, who also admitted to having similar attacks.

"I've had a lot of panic attacks off the golf course," Watson told reporters. "I actually went to the hospital three times thinking I was having something wrong with my heart and my wife is like, 'What is wrong with you?'"

Each time, Watson said doctors didn't find anything wrong.

"I've done everything," he said. "I've done EKGs, we've done tests, all kind of things. [The doctor] told me, basically, I need medicine. I need medicine that calms me down."

Watson said that his last panic attack was in Los Angeles at the 2011 Northern Trust Open, when he withdrew after a first-round 76.
