Bubba Watson makes huge donation to flood relief

Bubba Watson is an emotional man. He speaks his mind and even cries after winning tournaments. While he may not have the best reputation among fans, he has just gained a whole bunch more in West Virginia.

Bubba has decided to donate $250,000 dollars to relief and recovery efforts for the worst flooding West Virginia has had in more than 100 years. He spends many months in the area because of his summer home near Greenbriar so this is near and dear to his heart.

“This is my voice,” he said. “I’ll get back down there and do my part, get my hands dirty, and try to help out in any way I can.”

Watson posted this picture on his Instagram to show just how devastating the flood really was.

The flooding caused the cancellation of the Greenbriar Classic that was supposed to take place July 7th-10th. The Greenbriar resort was in one of the hardest hit areas, as you can see from the video above. The PGA Tour has announced they will also be donating $100,000 dollars to the American Red Cross.

No matter what your ideas of Bubba Watson are, you have to respect his commitment and heart to a cause that will only help others. You can help too by donating to pgatour.com/together.
