Bubba Watson Makes Golf Cool To A Whole New Audience
Bubba Watson ain't your grandfather's golfer! This is a guy that does golf his way and makes it fun. Watson is also a good example of why everyone should give golf a shot and here is why:
Bubba Watson won the 2012 Master's Tournament. Without ever having a single golf lesson. Because he does it his way, other golfers couldn't stand him. Watson has the craziest swing you will ever see, but it works. He is a lefty, too.
Off the green, Bubba is a man's man. He bought the very first General Lee used in the TV show "Dukes of Hazzard". And he drives it! He said the first thing he checked on it was the horn. Watson has another cool toy, a hovercraft. It's for water, not land though. Drat!
In 2011, Bubba and fellow golfers Ben Crane, Hunter Mahan and Rickie Fowler created a "boy band" called the Golf Boys with a video produced by Farmer's Insurance. Farmer's donates $1000 to charity every time the video gets one hundred thousand views.
Yes, Bubba Watson is certainly not orthodox in any way. He is an average guy, who just wants to have fun. And when you're on the green, you can be too. Plaid pants and uptight stereotypes are out the window these days. Fore!
