Bubba Watson wows crowd with trick shots at Quail Hollow - Press Tent:
"CHARLOTTE, N.C.—On the fourth green early Wednesday morning at Quail Hollow, Bubba Watson turned his back to the hole, putted the ball up a big slope and watched it trickle back down toward the hole.
The crowd started cheering as the ball inched closer and closer to the hole. Watson pulled out the flagstick, stuck his arms in the air and smiled when the ball found the bottom of the cup.
“I was just being dumb,” Watson said after the pro-am. “I knew it was going to come back to the hole. I didn’t think I could make it, and make it on the first try, but somehow it went in.”
What Watson calls “being dumb” is another way of saying he’s just trying to have fun. And it’s a key reason why he’s won three times in the last year, earned a spot on last year’s U.S. Ryder Cup team and now sits at No. 10 in the World Golf Rankings."
Bubba, God Bless you man, you are a good dude that understands that life is not a dress rehearsal and it's ok to show emotion, have fun, and make people smile. Along the way your efforts might not be perfect and not everyone will have fun or share the same emotion, but, a good friend of mine reminds me that the only perfect person on the planet who ever lived died on a cross so the rest of us don't have to be perfect. So Bubba, you are an inspiration and a great big smile producing friend to many and let us all never forget that in the end it is about having fun and giving effort, not being perfect.
Happy Golfing to everyone in the beginning of this great 2011 golfing season nationwide!
