Bubba Bags Second Masters with Late Charge


 Some people are just too nice for this world and Bubba Watson,  winner of his 2nd Masters golf championship in three years, is one of them.  I mean this good old boy from Florida is the Forrest Gump of the PGA tour if ever there was one.

Yet looks can be deceiving.  He may look the part and act the part but there are certain aspects to this down home boy we just can't ignore.

When asked once what was important to him Bubba said, in order of importance, being a Christian, Husband, Daddy and Pro Golfer.  Bubba and his wife Angie adopted a son, Caleb, just before his first Masters win two years ago.  There was little Caleb racing across the course to meet his Dad after this win.

Bubba, whose real name is Gerry Lester "Bubba" Watson, Jr. has won over $23 million dollars and is ranked 4th in the world in the PGA, yet he still held his celebratory dinner after the Masters after midnight at the Waffle House with his family.

In 2012 Bubba launched a "Drive to a Million" charity to raise money for charities close to his heart and by November 2013 he had raised over $1.3 million. He also is affiliated with The First Tee of Northwest Florida, Fresh Start, Birdies for the Brave, and the Ronald McDonald House of Pensacola.
