BUBBA WATSON OWNS THE DUKES OF HAZARD - GENERAL LEE
Golf is Cool Again Thanks to Bubba Watson-
Golf has a new poster boy after Bubba Watson won the 2012 Masters Championship yesterday in Augusta, Georgia. The more I read about him, the more I can't help but really like this guy! Here's five fascinating things I've learned about Bubba since he slipped on his hot new green Masters jacket and made golf kinda awesome.
1. His Best Friend is Justin Bieber
I know, it struck me as odd too! But Justin told Access Hollywood they talk almost every day--but not about golf. Bubba actually thinks that Justin is a terrible golfer! Justin is nothing but proud of his BFF and tweeted this to him last night:
2. He Owns the General Lee from the Dukes of Hazzard.
Bubba literally bought the iconic General Lee car from the TV show the Dukes of Hazzard! It cost him $110,000 and 16 months of repairs but this is the actual car that was in the actual opening credits of the show!
3. Bubba and His Wife Just Adopted a Baby Boy!
Only two weeks ago, Bubba and his wife Angie adopted a baby boy named Caleb. Because Caleb was too little to travel, mom and baby stayed home in Bagdad, Florida and watched daddy win on TV! How cute is the new family?
4. Bubba's in a Boy Band!
Yup, you read that right! They're called the Golf Boys and Bubba's bandmates are fellow golfers Ben Crane, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan. The song was for charity and I would love to know if the Biebs gave Bubba any tips . . . especially about the farmer look that he went for (yes, that's our Bubba in denim overalls, no shirt, all the way on the far right!) See for yourself!
5. He's Super Sensitive--and Sentimental!
Watch his touching acceptance speech after winning yesterday and you'll see what I mean. Just a warning, grab some tissues before you hit play!
Oh and I just loved this Tweet Bubba sent out today too! It's nice to see someone so genuinely happy and humbled by their success. One last fact? Bubba is a self taught golfer--no fancy lessons for him!
