A Glam Slam:
Bubba Watson is working to add another green jacket to his wardrobe. He’ll hit the course in Augusta wearing a new range of fairway fashions, with hopes of adding the coveted piece of apparel to Sunday’s ensemble. Last year’s Masters had the golfer styled in all-white threads from Travis Matthew. He has since switched apparel sponsors, making the move to Oakley. This time around, he’ll be outfitted in bold hues, stripes and graphics that are as colorful as his personality. After joining the Oakley team, Watson explained:
“Style is important because personality is part of what makes fans connect with golf, especially the new generation of players. Oakley sets the pace. And I need a clothing company that can keep me looking good!”
He doesn’t claim to be a style icon (though he does have an affinity for socks), but the golfer recently spoke to Esquire magazine about his “awesome” personal style. Below are a few excerpts. For the full interview, read on here.
Esquire.com: OK, so, tell me a little about your personal style.
Bubba Watson: It’s awesome. That was easy. Next question.
ESQ: Seems like Oakley is a good fit for you. They’re sporty, but bold. You must be loving the colors.
BW: Definitely! I like bright colors and it will be a change from last year, where I wore all white on the day I won the tournament. But really, my favorite thing about being linked to Oakley is getting to hang with the cool people, the cool athletes — like the X-Games guys. Those guys play sports where they can really hurt themselves, and, well, I just play golf. I’m like the wimpy guy over here.
ESQ: I saw! You tweet your shoes and socks a lot — and your socks are always so colorful and fun. A real statement sock.
BW: Who doesn’t love a statement sock? I mean, we won’t go in to details, but your underwear has to be bright, too. Oakley is making underwear now and I joked when I was signing this deal — I tweeted something like, “Only reason Oakley wanted me was to be their underwear model. Photo shoot to come soon.”
Check out the video footage below as Watson and Oakley unveiled his scripting for the Masters:

Tweet One of the lesser known traditions of The Masters and Augusta National is the Champions Dinner that takes place a couple of nights before the tournament begins.

On Masters Eve, I’ve noticed an eerie calm. Consider the past three Masters starting with Phil’s 2010 win highlighted by his incendiary Saturday and shot from the trees on Sunday.

Bubba Watson has made a grand return to the site of his biggest professional achievement this week as he finds himself in Augusta preparing to compete in the Masters this week.

Bubba has been all over the map recently including doing the following: make music video #1, music video #2, driving a custom made hovercraft golf cart, enjoying ‘Dufnering,‘ videobombing on live TV, and Tweeting out some gems. Sometimes throughout all of that fun we forget that Bubba is just another human being (with ridiculously good golf skills). During his Masters...
