It is a sad day for the entire Watson family. Bubba has been a shining light for the PGA Tour this year. He along with Rickie Fowler & Jeff Overton to name a few, have shown how honest flare and flameboyance can reinvigorate the tour the good of the game. Just look at his first win this year at the Travellers Championship and at the Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor in Wales.
I would say to all young golfers who follow the top tours and players to take their inspirations for the game from Bubba, my example being the way in which he handled himself in defeat to Martin Kaymer at the PGA after the play-off this year.
This is the type of sportsman I would want the kids of today to follow and admire. Would anyone else agree?
