Bubba is a Master

The 2012 Masters may not have lived up to the hype due to the poor play of the favorites: Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, but the tournament certainly did not disappoint.  In a final round that included some of the world’s best in contention on the back nine, a man named Bubba outlasted them all.  He never lead the tournament until he was tied with South African, Louis Oosthuizen at -10 with just two holes to play.  Bubba is a stereotypical “Good Ole Boy” from Bagdad, Florida, he played his collegiate career at the University of Georgia, making this victory a joyous homecoming.  The “Hefty-Lefty,” better known for his long drives and hilarious music video took a backseat to the bombers pure golfing ability on Sunday.  He outlasted the world’s best, and you can tell that winning the Masters meant the world to him.  Bubba will undoubtedly receive criticism due to the waterworks he shed after winning the tournament, but who are we to judge?  He won arguably the most prestigious golf tournament in the world, and he did it basically in his own back yard.  It is so seldom that the public sees the true emotion of an athlete that Bubba’s tears were actually kind of refreshing.  Professional athletes are placed on such a pedestal that it is sometimes hard to remember that they are human as well.  We are so used to robotic athletes who lack any real depth that Bubba’s joyous tears make him look like one of us, the commoners.

The only person happier about Bubba’s win at Augusta is the chairman of the  tournament, Billy Payne.  It is widely publicized that Augusta is the most exclusive golf club in the world, and that they disallow female members.  And lezbehonest, they don’t love the idea that minorities win their event either.  Augusta is in the heart of the Bible belt, and affirm strong conservative ties; bluntly stated, Augusta loves when a white American wins.  Just by looking at Payne, he strikes me as a racist, and we already know his about his prejudice stance’s.  That being said, Augusta is a beautiful place and the course remains a complete nightmare for the amateur golfer, let alone the professionals.  But, its time for the Masters to ease up on the whole white supremacy thing, it turns the casual fan off.  Anyways, congrats to Bubba Watson, a well-deserved champion who is hopefully on his third or fourth glass of whiskey right now.  If its only one thing that the Southerners know how to do right, its shooting some whiskey.

  1. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Many thanks

  2. Augusta loves when South Africans win. Apartheid until 1990. Fits in with the local culture to keep the women off the course and the blacks on the bag.
