Any time a guy named Bubba wins the most revered tournament in golf, it’s a big deal in the world of sports. That Bubba Watson won it in a sudden-death playoff was especially exciting, especially after his insane second shot from behind a tree on the second playoff hole put him position for victory. That he sobbed uncontrollably on the green after winning was touching and that his post-match interviews proved him such a genuine and sweet guy only endeared him more. But that’s not why I was pulling for Watson to edge the equally heroic Louis Oosthuizen… The dude owns the General Lee! And rides it around to tour events. Take a look, Dukes of Hazzard fans.
Watson clearly has an eccentric streak. Check out this music video he made with some of his fellow “Golf Boys.” Yeah, that’s him in the overalls.
Did you watch the final holes of the Masters yesterday? Were you pulling for Bubba?
