THE MAN

His name is BUBBA WATSON and he just won THE MASTERS .
It was an exciting game...and he won it in a SUDDEN DEATH playoff.
He is my newest HERO
This is his first major win...
 I bet he did this shot in shadows and shade just for my SHADOW SHOT 2 linky party fun...
.......don't you ?
:>)
He always uses a PINK driver....
♥ ♥ ♥
The driver is part of a year-long campaign sponsored by Ping. Every time Bubba drives the ball over 300 yards, Ping will donate $300 dollars to his charity. At $300 per drive for his first 300 drives over 300 yards -- that's a lot of 300s -- Watson stands to rack up $90,000 for his foundation, just for doing what he always does.
And, if you don't mind me sayin' so....
He is VERY easy on the eyes.....whew.....

 This photo, taken right after his MAJOR win on EASTER SUNDAY,
is with his mom, Molly.
I know just how she feels....we are ALL so proud of our kids.


 BUBBA is the proud owner of
THE GENERAL LEE
from the hit tv series of the 1979-1985
THE DUKES OF HAZZARD...

AND
The PROUDER OWNER of a tiny baby boy...
 he and his beautiful wife just adopted a little sweetie.





THIS proves it....
REAL MEN DO WEAR PINK...!!...
 
PINK SATURDAY

Congratulations to Bubba and his wife. My father loved to watch golf. Whenever I see it on television, I think of him.

A lovely Friday to you and your family.

Vee said...

I know very little of this golfer. Guess that my knowledge of all things golf has been limited to a certain guy named Tiger. Thank you for the introduction.

What a wonderful tribute to this young man. I think he is just a wonderful person and as real as real can get. I am glad he won and I'll bet he is going to be an awesome Dad! xo Diana

Theresa said...

ALL of that about BUBBA WATSON AND he is from UGA... our own Georgia Bulldog:) He is such a nice guy, so worthy of this win! Thanks for sharing this with everyone! I was watching when he made those impossible looking shots and when he won! Go BUBBA! Have a blessed weekend dear BJ, HUGS!

LV said...

I even watched him in sudden death. He is a self-taught golfer. Amazing and awesome.

Debby said...

I watched the end of the match and saw him win. I didn't see the picture of his wife and new baby. I bet she was upset about not being there but better off with the new little one. I hope he does well with his career now.

Miss Janice said...

The more I read about Bubba, the more I love him! He is such a fine young man and someone the young kids who golf can look up to.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

We watched him win, too. We could have gone one day to the masters, but hubby couldn't with his back.

Lemon Lane Cottage said...

My four year old grandson loves Bubba. He is a lefty golfer just like him. Go Bubba!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

We watched it too..and his reaction to winning had me in tears!
What a sweet guy! I was so happy for him!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

...and NO..you are NOT the only one lost with this new blogger! I have NO clue how to get the blogs I follow over to my side bar, WHERE is our dashboard..NO you are not alone!

Barbara said...

Bubba is the MAN....what an awesome guy. After winning the Masters, his interviews with Letterman and Piers Morgan were so funny. Now he is home w Caleb for daddy time.The Bulldog Nation is so proud of him. Watch the YouTube video of his birthday gift to Ellen DeGeneres.

Happy Pink Saturday! xo Tami

Kelly said...

I knew he had won, but didn't know all the other facts you shared with us. Interesting post!

Gabriela Delworth said...

HPS!

That's right! I watched the game {The Man made me :o)} and saw a lot of pink...

Ralph said...

I really like Mr. Watson - his family comes first, his profession second. To see someone who has his priorities in order is impressive. That's why his winning is so great, he is the anti Tiger. Family first, the way it should be!

chubskulit said...

Love your pink this week. So pretty!

My PINK..., have a great weekend!

Kathleen said...

We watched. He seems like a good man. I really like Phil mickelson though. I remember when everyone thought Tiger was so wonderful, not!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

My man has had no problem wearing pink...and he looks better in the color than I do.

Great series of images shared to day. As always.

Hi bj, this is such a great post! He is a cutie indeed and seems so genuine and caring. Any boy who hugs his mom is good with me. Doesn't he look just like her in that shot??? Sometimes I call my baby boy (he just turned 20 but he will always be my baby boy) bubba. Have a great day bj. I love your newest header! Linda

Thank you for rubbing dryer sheets on your arms, etc. idea, -- as mosquito repellent. !!!

jeanne said...

Good Sunday morning bj, Thank you for you comment my dear sister friend. Yes, getting married when we did was just as meaningful as the elaborate weddings they have today. Probably more. Life was simpler back then. I miss that.

I loved your Bubba story. I did not know anything about him. He sure has my admiration now. This was a great share.
Happy PS and Sunday too.
Love, Jeanne

PS: We are putting a hurtin' on the cupcake papers. I love the muffin cookbook. Thank you again. Bill thanks you too.HA!

Dru said...

What a wonderful post - I so enjoyed it - and no wonder you like him. He seems like a really great guy! Thanks for sharing, and stopping by ~ and Happy Pink Saturday to you, Dru

chubskulit said...

Thanks for your beautiful contribution to Shadow Shot Sunday 2.

Come see the Flag in the Wood shadow. Have a blessed Sunday!

Beverly said...

I was so excited for him to win, too. He seems like one of the good guys.

Happy Pink Saturday, sweet friend.
