Bubba Watson Buys Dukes of Hazzard General Lee Car for $110,000 (Picture)

What do you do when you’ve won nearly $13 million on the PGA Tour? You buy a badass car used in a TV show, that’s what you do.

Golfer Bubba Watson fulfilled a dream buy purchasing the original General Lee car used in the Dukes of Hazzard TV show. Watson won the car at an auction Saturday with a $110,000 bid. The car was used in the very first episode of the show to jump over a police cruiser.

The best part about the purchase is this is something Watson promised he’d do last year.

“I’m definitely going to get me a Dukes of Hazzard car, a replica that I’m definitely going to get if I win a golf tournament, because my wife said I can do that if I win,” he said at the time. “So if I win, I’m getting a Dukes of Hazzard General Lee.”

You heard it here right now: the day LBS hits seven figures, I’m buying the ****ing Batmobile.

Fan Gets Tattoo of Bubba Watson, if Bubba Were Right-Handed (Picture)

Over the years we’ve shown you plenty of crazy fans here on LBS who get insanely detailed tattoos as a way of pledging their allegiance to their favorite athletes.  Tattoos like this one of Kobe Bryant, this one of LeBron James, and my personal favorite of Brett Keisel should be considered good artwork if nothing else, I suppose.  It’s nice to see golf getting a shout-out in the tattoo world every once in a while as well.  Check out this Bubba Watson tattoo that Devil Ball Golf shared with us:

Sweet ink, bro.  Watson’s a lefty.  Doesn’t matter tho — not like it’s permanent.  If hilarious tattoo screw-ups are your thing feel free to have a look at this one or this one for another cheap laugh or two.

Bubba Watson: Tiger Going the Wrong Way

In a relatively short period of time, Tiger Woods has gone from the most feared golfer on tour to just an ordinary player. Bubba Watson meanwhile has gone in the opposite direction. Watson won in New Orleans last week in a playoff giving him his second win of the year. He’s arguably the best American golfer at the moment, and he decided to dispense some advice for Tiger:

‘I’ll just go ahead and say it. I think Tiger’s going the wrong way,” Watson said. ”I think he’s so mental right now with his swing. Just go ahead and play golf. He used to hit shots, he used to bomb it, he used to do all that stuff. Sometimes I think a lot of the great players, they get too wrapped up in the mental part. When you start talk about other people trying to help you with your swing, look at this, look at that, I think they take a step back.”

So Watson thinks it’s all mental for Tiger and many other golfers when they get too caught up in their swing. Well of course it is. The problem is when things aren’t going well, the tendency is to analyze things to figure out what’s going wrong. The advice from Bubba may be right, but it’s so much easier said than done. As for Tiger, he isn’t as badly off as Bubba makes it out to be. Tiger was making quite a move at the Master’s before Schwartzel took over. In six events this year he’s had three Top 10s. It’s not Tiger good, but it’s not awful.
