Watney won the biggest tournament of his career to date and his first World Golf Championship at the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral Golf Resort & Spa in March 2011. He entered the final round trailing by two strokes, but shot a final round 67, including a run of four birdies in five holes in the middle of the round and finished with a birdie at the notoriously difficult 18th, to record a two stroke victory over compatriat Dustin Johnson. Watney admitted in an interview afterwards that he had dwelt on finishing 2nd at Doral, in the same tournament two years ago when his putt on the 18th finished a couple of inches short of the hole. An event which he eventually finished runner up to Phil Mickelson. After the victory, Watney moved up to number 15 in the World Golf Rankings.
