Bubba Watson is the proud owner of one of the official General Lee cars from the hit TV show in the late 1970s “Dukes of Hazzard.” The car, of course, has a Confederate flag emblazoned on the top. In light of recent events, Watson announced via Twitter that he will be painting over it with an American flag.
Bubba Watson, who ended up beating Paul Casey in a playoff, isn’t afraid to talk back to fans in the gallery, especially if they say something completely ludicrous. Which was the case on the par-4 2nd hole at TPC River Highlands during the final round of the Travelers Championship.
Watson hit his drive in the right rough — not where you want to be hitting into that hole since there’s a big tree blocking your line — leaving him with 101 yards to the green. No big deal if you’re a shot-maker like Bubba, though. A nearby drunk and clueless spectator had his own ideas on how to hit it and yelled at Bubba to punch a low 4-iron.
Bubba Watson is infamous for throwing temper tantrums, blaming others for his woes and just straight-up complaining, especially at major championships — last yearwas an exquisitelygood one for them. Well, he continued the pattern in the opening round of the U.S. Open.
Bubba Watson got his first look at Chambers Bay on Friday when he played a practice round for next week’s U.S. Open. The course is a mystery to most since it’s fairly new (less than 10 years old) and it’s located all the way up in the Pacific Northwest (sarcasm), along the Puget Sound and about 45 minutes south of Seattle.
Believe it or not — Dustin Johnson and J.B. Holmes both aced the par-3 no. 4 at Trump National Doral during a span of about 20 minutes in the third round of the Cadillac Championship.
Yep, you heard that correctly. Johnson and Holmes made unlikely hole-in-ones on the difficult fourth hole, which was playing 207 yards on Saturday with the pin on the right side of the green that is guarded by an intimidating water hazard. The duo of bombers also used the same club, a 7-iron.
The Watsons will have a new stocking up in time for Christmas and perhaps some extra presents under the tree. As you can see above, Bubba Watson announced via his Twitter on Wednesday that he and his wife Angie have adopted another child, a baby girl named Dakota.
Apparently “Golf Boys” have now disbanded and Bubba Watson has gone out on his own as a single artist.
Just when you didn’t think Bubba could wow you with more of his antics, the two-time Masters champion released “The Single,” entitled “Bubbaclaus” (or is it “Bubbaclaus The Single”?), where he dresses as Santa and pretends to rap.
Bubba Watson has pulled off seemingly impossible shots throughout his career (e.g., 2011 Masters) — it’s his MO. Watson wowed and impressed once again, but this time in Shanghai at Sheshan International Golf Club in the final round of the WGC-HSBC Champions.
After Watson snagged the solo lead on the back nine, he ran into trouble on nos. 16 and 17 with a bogey and double-bogey, respectively. And just like that, he had dropped three shots. Heading into the 18th with a two-shot deficit to Tim Clark, who was safely in the clubhouse, Watson needed an eagle on the par-5 final hole to force a playoff.
Patrick Reed’s “outspokenness” — or rather his choice of words — got him into trouble during the first round of the HSBC Champions in Shanghai. After missing a six-footer on the first hole (his 10th of the day), he muttered to himself, “Don’t f***ing three-putt you f***ing f*ggot.”
Following the second round at Sheshan International Golf Club, the 24-year-old American spoke with reporters and apologized for his outburst, which was picked up by the TV camera and microphone for the world to hear.
The European and American teams got together to celebrate the end of the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles Hotel on Sunday night. There was no shortage of alcohol and things got a little weird. Rory McIlroy posted the above photo of himself with Stephen Gallacher on his Instagram, wearing a wig and tartan kilt — oh, and he was shirtless.
