One of the most curious friendships in golf showed up today. Most struggle to believe that Bubba Watson and Rickie Fowler are best buds, but it’s true.
Rickie missed a birdie putt on the 18th green at the Memorial Tournament to end a disappointing round of 75. He overheard some abuse as he walked to tap in his putt and you can clearly see it pissed him off. Rickie shot a glare in the general direction of the noise before his playing partner, and fellow bro, immediately intervened:
“Who said it?” Watson asked the gallery. When he was met with no response, he continued: “Oh you’re tough now are you?”
Bubba seems to be improving of late. He recently came out and admitted he’s a bit of a nob, a mealy mouthed attempt at penitence from the man who never seems to be sorry.
What could Bubba and Rickie possibly have in common I hear you ask? God. These boys love a bit of religious action. What are the views about Bubba generally? Always a hard one to call because even though he’s a massive cheese piece it’s always fun to watch him.
