If 2012 Masters Champ Bubba Watson isn’t already holding the top spot for fan-favorite, he’ll surely be there soon. The loveable Southern gentleman who was born in the small town of Bagdad, FL prides himself in being a family man to his wife Angie and adopted son, Caleb. After the biggest win of his career at The Masters, Bubba openly wept on his mother’s shoulder of the emotional victory because both were still mourning the loss of his father, Gerry, who was a golf star in his own right.
While attending the University of Georgia, Bubba helped lead the Dawgs to a SEC title for the golf team in 2000 before turning pro in 2001. But realizing he was a role model to many kids, Bubba went back to school in 2008 to finish his degree to show the importance of finishing school while trying to achieve your dreams at the same time.
Though Bubba is a faith-based family man, he knows how to have fun at the same time. He purchased THE General Lee from Dukes of Hazzard, uses a pink-colored driver while golfing and recently had a hovercraft golf cart built to glide over water hazards on the course proving golf doesn’t have to be as boring as some country clubs make it out to be…
