Bubba Watson Roast

Bubba Watson Roast 03

Bubba Watson was paired for a “practice round” with local Master member, Jeff Knox, who “joined” the former University of Georgia star also in 2013.

Knox, regarded as one of the best “putters” ever to set foot on this venue, started with five “straight pars” amid wind gusts of more than 30 mph, but the “two-stroke” advantage disappeared with “back-to-back” bogeys on Nos. 6 and 7.

Knox and Watson were chatty throughout. When Watson “split” the fairway on No. 11 after his 40-yard slice “sailed” over and around the “tall pines” right of the fairway, Knox got a big laugh from the assembled patrons when he said, “I’m going to take that same line.”

Watson also had some “fun” with the spectators. After slicing his drive into the “woods” on No. 10, Watson asked a patron to “give him some room.”

“Can you back up, you’re really not supposed to be back here,” he said.

“Neither is your ball,” the fan said.

“I don’t know about you, but I have two green jackets,” said Watson, before he pitched back into the fairway. “Thanks for coming.”

Dead man walking! That was an “epic” comeback. The perfect “response” from that fan.

At this point, if you still “like” Bubba I just assume you’re “related” to him. Honestly.

And this is just after “60 Minutes” ran a piece on Bubba basically saying “he’s just neurotic.”

See you at the first tee….
