Bubba Watson celebrated Masters victory at Waffle House


Bubba Watson won the Masters for the second time in three years on Sunday, and he was still Bubba Watson. Just like in 2012, the water works started flowing immediately for Bubba when he made his final putt. He also showcased his love for Waffle House shortly after receiving his second green jacket.

“Champ dinner @WaffleHouse,” Watson wrote on Twitter. “#hashbrowns #covered.”

After his first Masters win, Watson joked that he was going to serve grilled cheeses from Waffle House at his Masters Champions dinner the following year. He decided to go with grilled chicken, green beans, mac and cheese and cornbread instead. Will 2015 be the year he actually features Waffle House? We wouldn’t be surprised. No amount of green jackets is going to change this guy.

Bubba Watson makes long putt on 14 during awesome second round (Video)

Bubba WatsonBubba Watson just destroyed the Masters on Friday at Augusta National, making five birdies on the back nine for a 4-under 68. His 7-under score for the tournament leads the event.

During his 5-hole stretch of birdies on 12-16, the birdie putt he sank on 14 stood out more than the others.

Did you see how much that putt broke to the left? That was not an easy read, yet it fell for Bubba. He also made a great tee shot on the par-3 16 and buried a short putt for the birdie.

Yep, things were looking great for Bubba, though he did finish his round with a bogey on 18. He still was pretty awesome during the day.

Bubba Watson buys Chipotle for more than 60 people

Bubba WatsonBubba Watson is one of the more active PGA golfers on social media, and he often interacts with fans to show his appreciation for their support. On Friday, he took it to the next level.

Watson bought dinner for more than 60 people at Chipotle Mexican Grill after his round at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. In the process, he racked up a bill of nearly $500. Considering most meals at Chipotle are in the $6 range, you can see how many mouths Watson decided to feed.

Tesori later added that Watson left a $100 tip. Uh oh, not this again. Maybe Watson learned from all the ridiculous criticism of Drew Brees earlier this week and didn’t want to deal with it. Either that, or he really appreciates the effort that does into make 60 burritos.

Bubba Watson blows up on caddie Ted Scott on way to triple bogey

Bubba WatsonBubba Watson hit consecutive poor shots that cost him an excellent chance at winning the Travelers Championship on Sunday, and he seemed to blame caddie Ted Scott for his mistakes.

Watson entered the par-3 16th with the lead, but he triple-bogeyed the hole to send himself three spots down the leaderboard. Watson hit into the water on his first shot and took a penalty and drop.

“Water, it’s in the water, that club,” Watson barked at caddie Ted Scott.

Watson then overshot the green on his drop and needed three putts to hole out.

“That’s the right yardage?!” Watson said after hitting past the green, per Eye on Golf.

And then Watson was pretty upset after missing a long double-bogey putt.

“There’s just no reason for me to show up,” he seemed to say after missing the putt.

Golf Channel’s Jason Sobel points out that in the past, Watson has acknowledged being rough on his caddie.

Bubba Watson cries during interview at The Masters (Video)

Bubba-Watson-crying-interviewThe Masters is the only tournament of its kind in golf. It can turn typically fun-loving grown men into mere mortals, as Bubba Watson showed us during his interview on Tuesday.

Watson, who is the defending champion at Augusta National after winning his first major there last year, was asked what some of the things were that he did with his first Green Jacket when he brought it home. Considering this is a guy who owns a hovercraft, bought this car and makes hilarious music videos with his golf buddies, reporters probably expected to hear some funny stories. Instead, Watson got extremely emotional and broke down crying.

Rather than mess around with the Green Jacket and risk offending the PGA, Watson says the only thing he did with it is wrap his son Caleb up in it. That was apparently a very vivid and touching memory for Watson, as he struggled for about a minute to compose himself after sharing it. Many have been criticizing Bubba for crying during an interview days before the tournament even starts, but my guess is he won’t be the last grown man to shed a tear before Sunday afternoon comes along.

Bubba Watson’s hovercraft may be the greatest golf invention ever (Video)

I’m not much of a golfer, but this absolutely amazing hovercraft created by Oakley for Bubba Watson is enough to get me out on the course.

Watson, who has created funny music videos and even purchased the car from the “Dukes of Hazzard,” is all about the finer things in life. He asked Oakley to come up with a no-boundaries golf cart that could go anywhere on the course. They delivered in a big way.

The hovercraft, named the BW1, goes through sand traps, water hazards, and scoots around on the greens.

Bubba says the hovercraft is so awesome people are going to want to just drive it and not even worry about the golf. He’s absolutely correct. This is like combining bumper boats and golf into one amazing experience.

The Golf Boys are back with a new song called ’2.Oh’ (Video)

Bubba-Watson-Golf-BoysGolf has a reputation for being a pretty stuffy sport, but a certain foursome that calls itself “The Golf Boys” tends to deviate from the norm. Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan and Ben Crane have released another song as a follow-up of the hilarious music video called “Oh Oh Oh” that they introduced to the world a couple of summers ago.

The new track is called “2.Oh.” While I don’t find it quite as funny as their boy band debut, there are still plenty of laughs to be had and plenty of Watson’s chest hair to go around. PGA enthusiasts will appreciate the references to Fowler’s flat brims, Bubba’s button-ups and Mahan’s facial hair.

It’s refreshing for golf to be able to feature guys who have girly golf clubs and pull off hilarious pranks. It keeps the younger demographic involved and helps casual fans relate to people who are making more money in a weekend than many of us will make in our lives. Most importantly, all proceeds from their music video are donated to charity. What more can you ask for?
