American golfer Bubba Watson, happy to find a place for a late bite during the WGC-Bridgestone Open, showed his appreciation by treating 60 fellow diners to a meal.

Watson had posted a second-round 69 to move to four-under-par in the tournament on Friday before heading out to dinner.

Upon arriving at the Chipotle Mexican Grill, the 2011 Masters champion handed $US500 cash to the waitress and told her to inform anyone coming into the restaurant he was paying.

When Watson and last year's US Open champion, Webb Simpson, got up to leave, Watson was handed a bill for $497.76.

Without hesitation, Watson pulled out a further $100 and told the waitress to keep the change -- $102.24.

"It's just fun to do and I don't mind giving back," Watson said. "I'm always in there and all the fans here this week are going in there and seeing all the golfers."

Watson said he might make a similar gesture "four or five times a year".

"I call myself a Christian, so the Bible tells us to give and help others and love everybody," he said. "Given we've been late finishing this week it's just great to go to Chipotle's and be served pretty quickly."
