If you won the Masters in Augusta, Georgia on a Sunday, what would you do immediately do the next night?
Based on the picture below, which I just found here at GordonKeith.com, it looks like what Bubba Watson would do is fly to Arlington to catch the stateside debut of Yu Darvish.
Okay, so that’s not the real Bubba Watson (duh), but you have to give the guy props for timing and creativity.
Well played Fake Bubba. Well played.

Masters’ champ Bubba Watson went on CNBC Tuesday to chat golf with Darren Rovell. Before the segment, Watson wandered on to the set and photo-bombed the anchors while they had no idea what was going on – or at least did a good job acting.
I’m telling you, the sports world needs more Bubba Watsons. This guy just plays golf and enjoys the crap out of himself in a first class...

Masters Champion and all around good dude Bubba Watson Tweeted this earlier today - ”Up early can’t sleep, don’t want to miss any part of being a dad & going to get a new cell phone number!

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Yu Darvish is off to a rough start in his much-anticipated major league debut for the Texas Rangers.
Darvish walked Seattle leadoff hitter Chone Figgins on four pitches. Before Figgins hit into a first inning-ending groundout, the Mariners already had four runs and four hits.
Two-time defending American League champion Texas in January committed more than...
The most memorable scene of "Lost in the Translation," even more so than the whisper at the end, at least to me, was the Suntory whisky commercial shoot.
The director talks at length, in Japanese, of how he wants Bill Murray's character to lovingly turn to the whisky bottle and look at it like an old friend. And the interpreter needs to convey this. Translation is...
Yu Darvish (credits below) Yu Darvish didn't pitch his best in his first career MLB start, but he still walked away a winner as the Rangers knocked off the Mariners. The Ranger bats came alive as they beat up rookie Hector Noesi and put 11 runs on the board. As for Darvish, he gave up all five of the Mariners runs in 5 2/3 innings, mowing down just five and handing out four...

Bubba Watson, the Georgia boy who's never taken a golf lesson or studied his own swing in his life, birdied four holes on the back nine to rally and win The Masters in a two hole playoff against Louis Oosthuizen.
Yu Darvish overcome a rocky start and got a big boost from the powerful Texas lineup, winning his much-anticipated major league debut in the Rangers' 11-5 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Monday night.
After giving up four runs while throwing 42 pitches in the first inning, then allowing another run in the second, Darvish (1-0) settled down and later retired 10 in a row...
Despite a thrilling finish that saw Bubba Watson storm to the lead on the back nine and eventually defeat Louis Oosthuizen on the second playoff hole, overnight ratings for The Masters on CBS were down 22% from last year, finishing with an 8.1 rating. That is the lowest rating since the 2004 tournament, which drew a 7.3.
One similarity between the 2012 and 2004 tournaments is...
Just give me my jacket Billy
Sunday at Augusta was as memorable as they get for more of the players. American Bubba Watson left wearing a green jacket after some wizardry on the second playoff hole. Runner-up Louis Oosthuizen carded the fourth ever (first ever televised) albatross. And this poor schmuck took an errant Peter Hanson drive to the chest on the Par 5 8th Sunday afternoon.
Judging by the reactions...
After watching Yu Darvish for more than a month in spring training, Lone Star Dugout's Jason Cole breaks down the right-hander's game on the mound––along with his dazzling seven-pitch arsenal––going into Monday's big league debut against the Seattle Mariners.
