“Bubba Watson” Attends Yu Darvish Debut In Arlington

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, it looks like what Bubba Watson would do is fly to Arlington to catch the stateside debut of Yu Darvish.
