Bubba Watson has become the anti Tiger. In a PGA world full of big egos, Bubba humbles all of us. Whereas Tiger Woods helped bring the physical game of golf to the masses by an explosion of technology and popularity, Bubba has brought back the beauty of playing the Gentleman's Game, stirring the love of sport in all of us with his truly real and authentic personality. Playing with a pink driver for cancer awareness, doing "The Golf Boys" you tube videos to raise money for charity, dedicating his time that he could have practiced to the Drive, Chip and Putt program, Bubba has become a true champion and absolute role model.
Rather than living in an ocean of self absorbed narcissism, Bubba invites us all into his world, being the guy that could be your neighbor you have a beer with, all while standing on the biggest stage in the world of golf. Now, with two Masters' victories, his legend will live on long after we are gone. And when the golf world is concerned about the status of Tiger and the interest he brings, Bubba has sucked away all that mess away and replaced it with his genuine tears, reminding us all that a sports champion can be someone we can all take pride in.
Thanks Bubba. Thanks for your humility and grace. Thank you for allowing me to rekindle my love of golf again. Finally Bubba, of course,
