Everyone knows Bubba Watson loves the color pink. He customized his famous Ping driver with the color and now he’s brought the pizazz to his golf ball.
Bubba announced that he was switching to Volvik golf balls before 2017. The fact that they came in bright colors pushed him over the edge when looking for a new ball sponsor.
“I was naturally intrigued by the colors Volvik offers. Then I started testing the ball and saw what I could do with it. It does everything I want it to: go high, go low, curve, spin and it has the distance I’m looking for.”
Seeing it in action is pretty hilarious but also awesome:
There have been a lot of equipment changes in these past few weeks leading to the New Year but this one has to be by far the most colorful.
Golfers who should avoid dropping the soap in jail
Bubba Watson (IN TROUBLE)
Bubba would be a lonesome inmate which could make soap dropping risky. Protection is key and I can’t see anyone taking a shank for this man.
Rickie Fowler (IN TROUBLE)
Rickie’s boyish looks may get him attention, but in the clink this is a serious issue. Tattoos may be mistaken for a rival gang's and SB2K16 could sound threatening to the Aryan Brotherhood. (Source/Red Bull).
Henrik Stenson (SAFE)
“The Ice Man” has that 1000-yard stare that can sometimes ensure nobody messes with you. Recent success at the Open Championship confirmed that it’s very difficult to mash the Swede.
Ernie Els (SAFE)
Fellow professionals said that Ernie would be the first guy they'd turn to in a bar fight. This anonymous poll heard people say things like: "We've heard stories about Ernie's fighting."
4) Jamie Vardy – 35.10
No real surprises here. So imporant to the Englishman's game.
The combo of Vardy's pace and work-rate, means all centre-backs need to be on their toes when facing the Leicester man.
