Bubba Watson wins with one the greatest clutch shot at the final playoff hole. Through the trees, swerving just to reach the green.

Bubba is known to be pro-military as his father served in Vietnam as a Green Beret and passed away right after the Ryder Cup. Congrats Bubba!

No green jacket for the female President of IBM. No women allowed as members. No presentation from her.

If I recall correctly, Bubba is a very devoted Christian.
Was that what Jim Nance referred to when he said: “I know how much this day means to you. And now you’ve won the Masters”?

Since Phil didn’t win am so glad it was Bubba. Incredible heart warming victory by a truly great American and wonderful person. The South rises again!

But the guy who won uses a pink driver. And someone named Bubba finally wins at Augusta.

Bubba is a class act. He's a credit to the game and will be a great ambassador for the Masters.

That was one amazing shot! Deep in the pines and he had to hook it just right. They kept showing the 6 inch putt that ended it but the shot from the pines was THE SHOT!

Bubba’s known for shaping his shots. He plays be feel and has never taken a lesson.

He spinned it just enough it made a 30 angle to get to the greens. Amazing.

Rickie Fowler and Bubba are best friends and everyday practising Christians and make no bones about it....Neither drink, drug, or smoke...

Real men, both.

“...with one the greatest clutch shot at the final playoff hole. Through the trees, swerving just to reach the green.”

Tremendous shot! Or should I see TREE-mendous?

I’m glad he won, and it was great golfing all around, everyone was in the hunt and Bubba came from behind to win! Many amazing shots and many amazing misses yesterday and today.

I also liked how he “took a moment” before he sunk the final putt.

Congrats Bubba, local boy makes good!

I was putting on the green, and this guy behind us on a par 5 hit his 2nd shot into us, and it rolled in the cup! So a rare albatross a.k.a. double eagle.

Bubba is a Christan and from a small town in Bagdad Florida in the panhandle of Florida. His father a former special ops in the Military died late 2010. He is the Tebow like and is the guy in the movie from Caddy Shack.

"PW from 155"

Wow. It's all I can do to get 155 out of a 6.

But that's why these guys make millions and I end up buying lunch all around every week.

I’m happy that a Christian named Bubba won the Masters.

Living in Aiken County, SC, which is right across the Savannah River from Augusta, I’m glad it’s over. Normalcy will return soon.

And now on to the Heritage where the winner gets a snazzy Tartan jacket. The pros say the Masters is like final exam week and the Heritage is like Spring Break. So lets cut loose for a little fun and party down at Hilton Head.

I am glad he won. His short game was not good until the last 9 holes. He stands to much over the ball when putting; but hell of long driver. I thought through most of the tournament this guy is not going to win; but he sure pulled it out today.

More importantly, he’s the only pro golfer in the world who can hook a wedge fifty yards around a corner on a 155-yard shot!

Do we even know if she plays golf? And does the CEO of IBM even care?

His amazing shot that won him the Masters:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mg3HddDU5Y

At the ceremonial donning of the Green Jacket, I loved how he gave credit to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As an added bonus, I'm sure the Secular Media got their panties all in knots over his proclamation.

Was rooting for Phil all afternoon until 17, then got behind Bubba. That whole thing with rooting for the USA to pull off the win.

After learning about what kind of person he is off the course, couldn't be happier that he was the eventual winner.
