Bubba being Bubba.....................again

91 posts in this topic

Well, it shouldn't surprise me but he's at it again.

http://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/bubba-watson-loses-his-cool-during-2nd-round-pga-championship?sct=hp4

He actually complained about water on his clubface.  Right you freaking douche.  No one else had that issue, just you.

Man I really hope this ******* never wins again.

Not as bad as his 3 iron antics, but still reinforces the growing (and likely accurate) feeling that Bubba is a whiny b****

Reading some of the quote's in that article makes me wonder why he even reads the Bible, if in fact he does, and if he  does, he seems to me, to be a total hypocrite. So, I'm calling BS on him. He may do good things for charity, ect, but imho, the game doesn't need him and his sissy, whiny attitude.

He must have been a really bad person if he has to try this hard to be a good one.

I don't understand all of the hate towards Bubba for complaining about bad golf shots. I've complained on the golf course when I've hit a bad shot and it's just a way to relieve stress.  These guys are out there trying to earn a paycheck and finishing in 2nd or 3rd can be a big difference in the payout.  No one says anything when Tiger is dropping F bombs left and right.

It's called being human.


I have no problem with him getting frustrated. He's the type of person to wear his emotions on his sleeve. Apparently the water was bothering him, and his ability to shape the ball. He's even said before he's most comfortable when he can shape the ball as he sees it. Look at his shot at his first Master's win. Its almost the more he can curve it the more accurate he is.

Well, it shouldn't surprise me but he's at it again.

He never said he was the only one who had that issue. Just because he shows his frustration outward, instead of brooding over it silently, people get bent out of shape. Its crazy how much hate Bubba gets, all because he's not a robot with no emotion on the golf course.

Yep, I'm a Bubba hater and I'm gonna hate.

It's not him complaining about bad golf shots.  It's complaining about conditions that everyone else had to deal with as well.  Guess what?  Rory's clubface was wet too.  He kicked ass.  Don't blame it on that.  Just say, "You know what?  I sucked today."  Yeah, I complain when I don't win our friendly competitions but I don't say it was because the grass was wet.

And stop treating your caddie like shit.  I long for the day he throws up both middle fingers, kicks Bubba's bag over and walks off the course.  Man, I'd pay good money to see that.

I sounded to me like he was frustrated with how the conditions affected his play. When things don't go as planned at this level it must be very frustrating. Plus there's a lot of people here who have insane expectations of the modern golfer, especially considering the level of exposure vs golfers 30-40 years ago.

I heard several players complaining about different course conditions in their interviews.

Several times I thought if they were named Bubba they would get their own thread on TST for saying that.

Golfers complain about course conditions (among other things) all the time.

Bubba's not the first complainer and won't be the last but seems to catch more heat (and get in more headlines) than other players doing and saying the same things.

My opinion on this story is, admittedly, heavily influenced by what he did Wednesday.

Because he is such a jerk. Other players have respect for other people and the game. BW doesn't.

He pretends to play "Bubba golf" as if he doesn't care, yet on and off the course he is  a nasty, hypocritical,sanctimonious pratt.

But when he's selling something  he's all smiles and "fun" videos.

And then there's the Christian BS........

He is a complete fool.

I've never been one to focus on people I don't like, but I must say that Bubba doesn't seem to have made a lot of new fans lately. I hope he gets his issues together and starts acting a bit more mature. My impression is that he acts like a child from time to time.

Ah. There it is. Here we go again.

I have no idea if Bubba is a Christian or not. That's between him and God. Lots of people call themselves Christians that have actions that show they probably aren't.

Christian bashing seems to be a popular sport these days.

I'm out of this thread.

Golf Digest has a great piece on this. http://www.golfdigest.com/blogs/the-loop/2014/08/why-does-bubba-watson-rub-peop.html

Quote:

He had to play with raindrops on his driver's face. We all know that is Satan's work, for surely the prince of darkness diverted the raindrops from all other players and caused them to settle only on Bubba's sticks. Raindrops everywhere, all morning, beginning at 6 o'clock and falling even through Bubba's tee time at 8:35. For hours, raindrops kept falling on Bubba's haircut, causing, methinks, reverberations in the vast empty spaces beneath.

Small wonder he felt so damned put-upon.

The poor soul has to hit golf balls for a living. A 35-year-old grown man from the panhandle of Florida could be making a decent living at long-haul trucking. Instead, this torture. Country clubs, chartered jets, chauffeured Mercedes, million-dollar paychecks. And, sometimes, if you can believe it, he has to do it in the rain. To protect himself from the rain, he once held an umbrella and asked his caddie, Ted Scott, to set his ball on a tee.

actually, the issue is that he only acts like an adult from time to time, and the majority of the time he acts like a child... everyone has their "child-like" moments... those are excusable, even though they might cause us to wince at times... bubba seems to have the mentality of a 5 year old as his "default state", and occasionally will visit the adult world...

Unfortunately for Bubba, the media will always be looking for his outbursts.  He has developed a reputation with his emotional play and it will be tough to shake that.

    • How do I organize a charity tournament to be a raging success?
      26 and a stroke? Holy smokes. Very sorry to hear that.  I have no idea how to organize a tournament but I have played in my share. The best ones are scrambles where you can organize your own team. The outcome has rarely ever mattered to us as long as we were well fed. Find a local restaurant (usually a bbq place) that wants to help you out and give a discount for advertising and spend your money there. Everyone will love to come for a good meal. Some nice prizes and maybe a raffle with some local companies offering you something if you are able to convince them it is worth it to give something to the cause.  Another thing I have seen work well is a silent auction at the end with donated items. I donated airline miles of which I have tons and 100,000 miles went for $205. Free gift for me and the cause got $205. 
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Haha - I get a couple of reputation points for a post and then go and have a blow up hole. Good drive, left myself 145 in down hill (8i), aimed #deadcenter, pulled 2 shots 25 yards left out of bounds, made 9 (+5) in a 9 hole round of (+11). A better way to avoid blow up holes - play stableford!

      Come on now, that's a bit uncalled for in Bernies case.  His political ideals might be way left, but he is at least honest and virtuous.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      I'll have to examine your other post closer. That's a good point to consider about the expansion to Continental Europe. Largely explains the poor showing of UK & Ireland in the 60's with many top tier European players not eligible. But considering the 200 million U.S. population base to 63 million in the U.K. & Ireland at the time, the latter did surprisingly well if population base was all that matters. IMO an established competitive golfing culture matters in producing elite players too. Those same European players excluded from Ryder Cup were always eligible for the Majors. The Ryder Cup is also a limited field event. It concentrates the 12 top players of the European Tour. From what I've read, depth of field is still stronger for the 'typical' PGA event, though some non-major Euro events are now stronger than some of the 'minor' PGA events. That is a significant change in Euro competitiveness from the 60's. To some extent that 30% drop sounds like it could be due to simply more international players occupying slots in the fields. If the period you mention covers when majors started to use OWGR for automatic qualification that has some not insignificant inherent issues in terms of strength of field. Having a guaranteed start rather than having to qualify would certainly make for an easier decision to travel to the event. But I'm not arguing against the policy decision facilitating international competition with a little points boost just trying to point out that field strength may not have been as weak in Jack's day as you seem to think. Compared to his peers, which is really the only thing I think you can do without speculative nuance I agree there's no question he's the best golfer. I'm really just arguing that standouts of their caliber (so many more wins so many more majors) than typical players among already elite fields are so rare, that I expect they both represent near the achievable human pinnacle in golf talent, which I don't think really differs within a few generations. The nuances of comparison across eras is interesting to me so I'll debate relative points, but I'm against arguments undervaluing Jack's achievements against 'weak fields'. They both faced very stiff competition.   I'm not dissing Jack. I think his achievements are amazing. I also think the same of Tiger's record. IMO winning percentage per start in the Majors is a very significant stat and Tiger has that in his favor (they are both top 10 and within ~ 2% of each other's number). That number is not the official one for Jack though, I truncated his Major starts to end at age 47, which I think is a reasonable cutoff for competitiveness. If Tiger competes as long as Jack did his major win % (up to age 47) might stay about the same, increase, or decrease (more likely), but he certainly won't match the 18 Majors if he doesn't get like 22+ more major starts between now and age 47.

      Typically more bounce (or a "healthy" amount of bounce) helps in any condition.
