Bubba's bad mood
Sean Zak does a good job covering the Masters champion’s fall from grace on a day he’d rather forget.
Day 2 of the PGA Championship and the, “the worsening weather had worsened his mood. That’s when Bubba started complaining to Ted Scott, his long-suffering caddie.”
“I can’t play golf, man,” Watson said. “I got nothing.”
“Water on the clubface, water on the clubface bro, I’ve got no chance’
Scotland in September
Come Scotland in September he’d better get over it. Chances are they’ll have a wee bit of rain during the Ryder Cup and Captain Tom will definitely tell him off should Bubba bitch about bad weather.
What's bugging Bubba?
It wasn’t just one bad day for Bubba. Reading Sean’s story makes me think there’s something more than bad weather bugging Bubba.
Practice day and most of the pros participated in the long driving competition but Bubba didn’t like the idea of participating in a fun competition for charity. Instead he chose to hit 3-iron shots off the 10th tee instead of his iconic pink driver.
Don't show or tell!
But wait there’s more about Bubba which is bit of worry for those people trying to promote the game as a spectator sport on television.
“But that wasn’t all. During his first round, Watson told Scott [his caddie] not to provide on-course TV commentators with his club selection or distance to the hole. It is by no means a requirement that caddies help on course television crews by providing their club selection or distances, but it’s something that many caddies do to improve the experience for those viewing from home.”
It’s not on record if Tim Finchem read Bubba’s tweet and has forgiven him.
