Bubba Watson’s First New Dad Thing: Win Ugly Jacket

By Whit Honea |

You may have noticed Bubba Watson making THE SHOT yesterday to win the 2012 Masters Tournament in a sudden death playoff with Louis Oosthuizen. Apparently it was pretty exciting.

I don’t know, that seems like a lot of work for an ugly jacket.

Here’s what you may not know about Bubba Watson. First of all, Bubba is not his given name, which is something of a relief. His full name is Gerry Lester Watson, Jr., but let’s face it, “Bubba” is a lot more fun.

Speaking of THE SHOT (you know, the one that Bubba Watson hit to win the 2012 Masters — pay attention!) here is a video recap of it just in case you were under a rock (or egg as the case may be):


And here’s why I’m telling you about Bubba Watson on the pages of Dadding (besides THE SHOT). Bubba Watson is a new father.

Bubba and his wife Angie adopted a one month old baby boy on March 26. The little boy’s name is Caleb. Less than two weeks later and Bubba is winning the Masters.

Who says golfers are bad dads? I’m looking at you Mike Adamick.

In addition, Bubba Watson is part of the popular band “Golf Boys” with Rickie Fowler, Ben Crane, and Hunter Mahan. Seriously, this is fantastic:


You’re welcome.

Congrats to Bubba Watson on his win, and more importantly, on his new son. That’s a pretty good first month of fatherhood.
