Seems Bubba didn't like the idea of the 10th hole being measured for along drive competition. He was quoted as saying;
When he arrived at the 10th hole, he pulled his 3i rather than driver, hit his ball and walked down the fairway. He was then quoted as saying he hit 3i and not driver to
At the press conference he was still annoyed and stated
The irony is that his method of protest provided him with no learning effect or practice because he said he would use his driver on that hole (Par 5, 595 yards) during the tournament.
Seems Bubba has ruffled some feathers from Golf Channel who felt is was a "slap in the face to the PGA" and "disrespectful to the event."
So who's backing Bubba?
