Bubba Watson is one guy who gets it. He's a professional golfer who doesn't take himself to serious and still has time to answer his many fans (has answer my tweets often) on Twitter and laugh sometimes at his practice round partner's shot (Rickie Fowler see below). He's genuine, honest and he's leading the WGC Championship after the first round. During an interview with the Golf Channel he mentioned he just "wanted to make the cut". When the reporter said there is no cut, he said, "Oh! good I made it".
I've always enjoyed watching Bubba on the tube shaping his ball around the golf course. I greatly enjoyed watching him win his first tournament at the Travelers Championship and shed tears after the final putt. He skipped the Canadian Open because he needed a week off which I understand, I just hope we get to see him play in Canada. If you follow anyone on Twitter follow Bubba he's the real deal. @bubbawatson

Australian Geoff Ogilvy, the 2006 U.S. Open champion, is a great admirer of Watson. Bubba, that is.''There is a great lesson in studying Bubba,'' Ogilvy told Golf Digest for an August 2009 story. ''He looks like he enjoys hitting golf shots, and everything is secondary to that. Most of the tour is in this bad place where players think that if they aren't always thinking about their swing, it will get messed up. Bubba is the opposite — all he thinks about is the shot.''
Bubba also wears cool clothing by Travis Mathew another reason to like him.
