Bubba Watson 2012 Masters Golf Winner

Bubba Watson 2012 Masters Golf Winner

In 2000, UGA’s Bubba Watson quit school to pursue his dream of being a pro golfer; today, after returning to UGA to finish and get his degree, it paid off in 2012 as the Dukes Of Hazzard fan won the 2012 Masters.

How cool is it for a local guy to win the most coveted prize in all of golf? And here on CBS’ Sports is Master’s Chairman Billy Payne set to present the Green Jacket to Bubba Watson, a guy who, on a number of occasions, looked like he was as close to blowing it, as he was winning it.

He told Jim Nance that he never thought he would get this far, and now he’s able to go home to his new-born son and celebrate.

On his website, you’ve got to like this:

Bubba quickly recognized his responsibility as a role model to young kids and in 2008, without telling his family and friends, he decided to go back to the University of Georgia and complete his degree. Bubba wanted to be able to encourage kids to get an education and pursue their dreams and therefore felt it was important to set an example. Bubba and his wife, Angie are committed Christians who share a passion for philanthropy and dedicate as much time as possible to giving back. They are involved with multiple charities throughout the year and run several junior golf events. Both on and off the course, Bubba’s character exemplifies the strength and humility it takes to succeed in life.

Shows you just have to keep faith, and keep pushing forward.

Congratulations to Bubba Watson.
