Maybe if he wins three or four more majors. Just one? Peh. Whatever.

And if he didn't pull it off, would they put a plaque up for the effort? Everyone gets a plaque for participating!

Doesn't deserve a plaque IMO. There's been lots of memorable shots at Augusta that could fall under the same category.

Name one. Not "lots", just one. "Same category" meaning all or nothing miss it and you've lost - and, from a seemingly hopeless position.

I'm no Bubba fan, but seriously, I'll bet you can't name a single one.

How about: Lyle's bunker shot up 18 when he won? Phil Mic's 6-iron (?) in to 13 from the pine straw under the trees to finally throw off Westwood? Or even Cabrera's hugely ballsy approach in to 18 this year knowing he had to make 3? Personally, good as Bubba's shot was, I wouldn't start doing this.

Mize get's one on 11 for doing Norman in (if we are giving them out)...arguably one of the more exciting finishes at the Masters.

I seriously think that Justin Rose gets one at Merion on 18 before Bubba gets a bridge named after him in Augusta.

As far as I know, Augusta doesn't have plaques on the course. They do name bridges and other course landmarks for golf icons.

Correct.

But I've been trying to forget that for 20 years or so.

I would have loved to see Greg in green seeing that he has been a "hometown" guy in South Florida for so long. I think he would have brought a lot back to the club as a former champion.

There is a plaque on the course. Sarazen's double Eagle is honored with a plaque on the Sarazen Bridge at 15. It ISN'T located at the spot that he hit it from. The only one I can remember off hand is the spot where Rocco holed out from on 18 at Bay Hill. Almost every one tries the shot during a practice round.

The one I think of is Mize's shot. Jeez, you're cranky.

Then they can call the trees to the right of #10 the 'Watson Woods.'

Craig Parry has one at Doral when he holed out for the win from 18 fairway.
