If you are into golf at all, you had to love the final round of the Masters yesterday. I was bummed that I missed it, because I really enjoy watching Bubba Watson play. He plays the game of golf the way I like the game of basketball to be played – aggressive, free-flowing, fun. His shot from the woods in the final playoff hole was a perfect reflection of that.
From all accounts, he is a different character and a Christian. He doesn’t take lessons or have a particular instructor. His swing isn’t ‘perfect.’ His game certainly unconventional. And yet, he is good. And when he wins, he is humble and full of joy. Really, he seems like a guy who is refreshing and easy to root for.
I was actually thinking about this before he even won the tournament, but wouldn’t Tiger Woods do well to learn from Bubba?
