Looks like any one if the players like Phil, Louis, Peter, Lee, Matt, and even Padraig can win it too. But ultimately Bubba stumbled over the finish line and made fewer mistakes. Well done!

Bro, totally agree with you....

It seems that the person that made the least mistakes won the masters'. Not taking anything away from Bubba's victory, but if you had seen him played throughout the first 3 days, as well as the front nine on the 4th day, you would cringe each time you see him putt.

Phil totally lost it after the triple bogey on the par 3, and after Louis albatross on the #2, he seemed to be unable to concentrate on his game any more...

I like Bubba. He has got this country boy charm. On the exterior, a bit opposite of Tiger. TW is all business on the course. Bubba, got this, 'I am happy to be here' type of disposition.

I think last year, he used a driver (off the deck) for his second shot in some tournament, the ball flew, rolled and landed on the green. Amazing!!!

U see Bubba burst into tears after sinking the winning putt?
Reminded me when Darren Clarke cried after winning Ryder cup after losing his wife to cancer

Very real, very human. Hats off. People say golf is just a game but it meant so much more to some.

Yes Bubba is very human.

http://www.majorschampionships.com/masters/2012/news/Bubba-Watson-part-artist-part-magician-all-champion-040812.cfm

excerpts from the link above.

He exists between the ropes with a simple mantra: “If I have a swing, I have a shot.” Watson had plenty of them in a playoff victory over Louis Oosthuizen.


“I want to hit the incredible shot; who doesn't?” Watson said. “I would rather have been in the middle of the fairway, but I'm used to missing fairways. I’m used to the woods. I’m used to the rough. It really makes me focus.”


"Five hours of PGA TOUR golf; I mean, it's no fun," Watson once said. “My mind just wanders. I'm thinking about what shoes I'm going to buy ... man, I need to wash my car. I'm thinking about stuff that doesn't matter.”


Watson has never taken a lesson, used to wear pink socks in high school matches and recently bought the General Lee, the car from "The Dukes of Hazard" television show.

He laughs, he cries, he tweets, he plays video games. He doesn’t know how to change a diaper or how to turn his brain off.

“I just want to be me and play golf,” he said. “I’m not ready for fame.”

The funny thing is, he dressed in white from head to toe and used a pink shaft in the Master. Ping specially made a pink color clubhead for him too. He looks sissy to those who do not know him, but once he drove the ball, those who do not know him well, would suffer a jaw drop shock!

Maybe Bubba is an admirer of our ruling party. Laughing

But seriously we have to tip our hats to Bubba, Travis Mathew golf apparel will donate the entire proceeds for the limited addition sets that Bubba is wearing to Fresh Start, a charity that does reconstructive surgery for kids with physical defects or disabilities.Plus additional 50k if all 100 pcs sets are sold.
