Bubba Watson has won the Master’s. Before he took home the green jacket, he got himself another prize; that he could use for a possible parade lap.
NASCAR and track officials canceled plans to have pro golfer Bubba Watson drive the car from the television series “The Dukes of Hazzard” at Phoenix International Raceway because of concerns about a negative reaction to the infamous Confederate flag that sits atop the car.
Watson was going to drive the 1969 Dodge Charger, commonly known as the “General Lee,” for a parade lap March 4 preceding the Sprint Cup series race at Phoenix. However, the car has a large Confederate flag on its roof, just as it did when the famous television series aired in the 1970s.
Of course, those were more politically incorrect times, when the flag inappropriately flew from the tops of government buildings and was often placed in classrooms. We’ve come a long way since then. I’d like to think.
NASCAR spokesman David Higdon said in a statement:

The new Masters champ says he had to switch phone numbers after one ESPN radio show refused to stop calling him for interviews.
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.

Bubba Watson is currently on top of the golf world after clinching the prestigious green jacket Sunday at the Masters. It was a victory that Watson earned by making some remarkable shots all over Augusta — none more than his shot from the pine needles on the second playoff hole. Like the rest of us, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick marveled at how the lefty was able to pull off...
Bubba Watson had reason to feel like a rock star.
His playoff win at the Masters on the second extra hole stretched into early evening, and when he finally slipped on the green jacket during the trophy presentation, the flashes from so many cameras danced across his face like strobe lights.
''I'm not ready for fame,'' Watson said. ''I don't really...
On Sunday afternoon at Augusta, pink became the new green. Bubba Watson, one of the most popular players on tour, earned his first career major in a big, big way by defeating Louis Oosthuizen in a playoff thanks to an unforgettable shot on 10. After the two players both parred 18 during the first playoff hole, a pair of wayward tee shots at 10 left the tournament up in the air for...
Someone wise once said, “It’s not where you start, but where you finish.” Telling words for all athletes and other professionals who have to endure heartache and failure to be able to achieve success. The road for professional athletes to stardom aren’t always the easiest paths to walk. A lot of athletes are given great athletic abilities from God, but they have to work to...
The rarest shot in golf can happen any time Bubba Watson has a golf club in hands. Watson was so deep in the woods late Sunday afternoon that he couldn’t even see where he was going. With his golf ball nestled on a bed of pine needles, he hit a gap wedge that shot out toward the fairway and hooked some 40 yards and onto the elevated green.Nothing less than the Masters was riding...

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...
Louis Oosthuizen on heartbreaking loss to Bubba Watson at Masters.
This is why we watch sports. For the train wrecks, the surreal, and the unimaginable.
Bobby Petrino gets in a motorcycle wreck probably crossing train tracks. The wreck is bad, but the cover-up becomes worse.
It’s the kind of stuff that would be hard to write for a screenplay. The least likely scenario turns into a can-you-believe-it soap opera with deception at every turn.
