Bubba Watson joins the PDGA...
« on: August 17, 2010, 04:12:12 PM »
I have looked as deep as I can to see if this is fake. I believe it to be true.  Bubba Watson is a PDGA member...  #44745

That would be awesome, especially if it is the real Bubba Watson.

It's his page that is also connected to his actual twitter accounts.  Dunno.  The only thing that throws me off is the AZ addy on the PDGA site.   He is from FL but who knows.    Anyway.   I offered him 20 dollar lessons :)

All the "bio" pages just listed his place of birth.   However, I ran across this in my search: http://armchairgolfblog.blogspot.com/2010/08/bubba-watson-just-wants-to-have-fun.html



Good find. All I could find is the place of birth.

Me neither. And the fact that he almost won some ball golf championship this past weekend means nothing, I still say I never heard of the guy... :D

Lots of those guys have multiple residences. He's from the south (went to the University of Georgia), and ios originally from Florida, but he may have a house in Arizona.
Missouri....our state animal is sterile, our state rock is lead, and we elected a dead guy to the U.S. Senate.  Of course, he was the best candidate.

It could also be his "handler" who set the site up.  By the pictures posted it makes me think whoever is running it must at least know bubba pretty well.

With the cost of PDGA dues and all, it doesn't surprise me that Bubba had to finish 2nd at a PGA Major before joining. ;)

This article makes mention of his playing disc golf:

http://www.statesman.com/sports/golf/bubba-watson-keeps-it-fast-and-fun-857189.html

"We got here Sunday night, flew in with Rickie, called Rickie from the house I rented and I said, ‘There's three kids that live here,' " Watson said. "There's scooters, there's skateboards, there's basketball, there's football, there's Frisbee, golf in the back. Disc golf in the back. There's bicycles.

That's awesome! 

I was pulling for him to win last weekend.  Crushing loss after winning the first playoff hole.  But the cool thing is that he won't let it get him down. 

Yeah, I'd like to see him crush a disc!  Getting professional golfers to recognized disc golf would be HUGE for this sport.
