On 5 yesterday, Bubba Watson’s ball came to rest against an anthill. That led to a genial discussion with a rules official over whether Watson was allowed to take a drop. The official classified the anthill as a “loose impediment”; Watson countered that ants, technically, are “burrowing animals.” Both have very…
Bubba Watson, everyone's favorite Southern chillbro golfer, won his second Masters in three years yesterday, and he celebrated the achievement exactly as you would expect him to. After claiming his second green jacket, Watson and his crew made a late-night Waffle House run, because Waffle House is a place for…
[Bubba Watson stares down a ball on the 16th green, surrounded by a sea of sweaty, colored shirts. The 35-year-old won his second Masters in three years Sunday, finishing 8 under par, three shots in front of Jonas Blixt and exciting rookie Jordan Spieth. Photo by David Cannon/Getty]
This was bound to happen. Instead of the tired "get in the hole," spectators are now yelling "Omaha" after a player's tee shot.
It's called Amen Corner, but today it's been devilish—even for the defending Masters champ.
Bubba Watson continues to be the most made-for-the-internet golfer in America. He's taken some time off from dropping hip hop tracks to help develop the world's first golf cart that is also a hovercraft. We are glad that he has done this, because this hovercraft is awesome.
Yesterday we posted a photo of golfer Jason Dufner visiting a community center and looking supremely downtrodden. Today, golfers all across the land are razzing Dufner, who's been chipper enough about the whole thing, by mimicking his pose. Dufnering! It's a thing! Bubba Watson, who Dufnered in the photo above against…
It was almost two years ago that the Golf Boys—a group consisting of PGA pros Bubba Watson, Hunter Mahan, Ben Crane, and Rickie Fowler—released "Oh Oh Oh" onto the world. Their follow up, cleverly titled "2.Oh," sees the Golf Boys taking a huge leap forward in production value while bringing the…
Golf's major tournaments just haven't been that interesting lately. Over the last 17 majors, there have been 16 winners. In theory, this could be nice! A little diversity, a little surprise. But since Tiger's sabbatical, we've lost any hope of narrative. Individual sports thrive on story lines, rivalries and dominance…
So this is a weird one, and it's from Ohio. Bubba Watson was in Columbus this week for the Memorial Tournament—a tournament for which he did not make the cut. But he has a pretty good excuse: for 37 minutes Tuesday night, some unknown driver chased a car carrying Watson, his wife and newly adopted child.
You have to admit, this is cute as shit. As Masters Sunday wore on, we heard more and more about how Bubba Watson had adopted a son, Caleb, just weeks before the tournament. When he won, he spoke about how excited he was to go back home and see him.

Every morning, the fine folks at Sports Radio Interviews sift through the a.m. drive-time chatter to bring you the best interviews with coaches, players, and personalities across the sports landscape. Today: Bubba Golf is like regular golf, only Bubba-er.
While Bubba Watson's Masters championship will be remembered best for his miracle shot from the pine straw, it's worth recalling that he actually missed the putt to win on 18 in the first sudden death hole of his playoff with Louis Oosthuizen.
Bubba Watson just won the 2012 Masters. Let's celebrate with this wonderful video (made for charity!), originally published June 14, 2011.
Bubba Watson overcame a missed clutch putt to come back in the second hole of his playoff with Louis Oosthuizen by launching a perfect recovery from well off Augusta National's 10th fairway onto the green. On a day that featured two holes-in-one and a double eagle, it'll be the shot golf fans remember for decades.…
Tipster William writes in to alert us to "some kind of music group [Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan, and Ben Crane] have put together." He says it seems like it's a joke and publicity stunt. And it's "very, very lame."
