Bubba Watson meets and thanks one of his harshest critics

Quote:
"I need to be held accountable," he said following a third-round 73 that left him at two-over-par 215. "The Bible says you don't act that way, and I did." So he thanked "all the people on Twitter, all my supporters, and the media. I love it. I'm glad people called me out."

In before the liberal elite on this site post, "Christian BS." Myself, I'll accept what he said at face value.

How about we keep all "labeling" to a minimum. :-) Thanks

??????

You really must have some hang ups if you can't focus on what is between the lines and what has actually been said in certain posts.

You think you're in a race? And that making some smug remark wins points? Rather than the one line insults, how about a detailed exposition of your standpoint?

FYI the "Christian BS" term  is not a pejorative slight aimed at all Christians, it is aimed directly at Bubba's brand of Christianity, where he paints himself as superior, but shrouds it in phony humility.

Bubba is the Justin Bieber of golf.

This is the pattern. They are identical:

Behave atrociously.

Tweet something like #tryingtogetbetter and a religious phrase. Add some suck up phrase to fans.

Rinse.

Repeat.

Not necessarily. He struggles with the same things. As do we all.

This forum is the best.  I don't think there is one single golfer - past or present - where we could come to a consensus and say, yes that guy is a good guy.

Bubba is too stupid and religious and doesn't know his French history

Henrick is too smart and robotic

DJ is a coke-addicted home wrecker

Rickie is a peacock who wears a funny hat

Phil is too fake, or too real, or has a fake/real smile

Sergio can't win the big one and is an a-hole

Tiger (100 threads on his faults already)

Rory broke off his girlfriend with a phone call

Bobby Jones was a racist

Duff is too fat and doesn't deserve his smokin' hot wife

ISTG, if Mother Theresa and Gandhi were having a match, this forum would jump all over her because she couldn't get up and down from a tight lie.  And Gandhi will never be any good until he learns the ball flight rules.

This place is FAAANtastic

BTW, I don't care if Bubba carries a Bible in place of one of his wedges.  He's a freak with a golf club in his hands.  That's all i care about.  It's all good fun reading everyone's opinion.  As long as there is a level of respect mixed in.  (except when it comes to Rory Sabatini, that guy really is a POS.)

Excellent post @CraiginKSA .  Perhaps if MT and Gandhi had read Lowest Score Wins .. ;-)

This is the internet.  And unfortunately finding flaws tends to come out in everyone's posts from time to time.  Bubba is trying to apologize to the public with statements and tweets.  Some can accept that and others cannot.  Such is life.  I hope he can really learn from this, but that will take maturing a bit more.

And it's also a forum where if someone said, "Charles Manson was a prick," I actually think there would be people coming to his defense saying that we don't know his situation or that we should give him the benefit of the doubt.

There are both kinds here.  And that's okay.  If we all thought the same things and had the same opinions there wouldn't be any need to ever log on.

You are absolutely correct at the end of your post.  And most things stay respectful here.  I've seen a lot of disagreement but not very much hostility.

Bubba is a joke. He needs to stick to being an ass/moron, or, be a good guy - right now he's an ass/moron constantly apologizing and trying to reiterate that he is actually a good guy.

He's lost in the void somewhere between those two which is worse than either.

    • This is why I joined a Country Club here in No. Virginia, when I first moved to the area, I couldn't believe it took me 5-5.5 hours to play 18 holes on the weekend.  That lasted a couple of summers and then I took the dive to joining a Country Club, which for me is well worth the cost. 
    • I went through the same experimentation phase with my "standard" clubs when I first began thinking about single length clubs a couple years ago, and as @inthecup mentioned, the results were not good -- the gaps were not good, the swing weights were different (because the head weights were different), lies were wrong, etc. But, I saw enough of an improvement in ball striking (i.e. not hitting fat as often on the long irons) that I tried the Pinhawks (ValueGolf). Aaron @ Value Golf has been selling Pinhawks for a couple years, but increasing demand for single length irons seems to outstrip supply occasionally (resulting in stock-outs). So if you're serious about trying it, sooner would be better than later -- I recently had to wait 30 days to send a contest winner their iron heads because they were completely out and were waiting for their next manufacturing run to be delivered.  
    • That sounds less like a slow play issue and more like a no play issue. I'd imagine your guys plopped down somewhere for a late afternoon picnic. They probably engaged in a few ball-hunting expeditions and may have taken a swim in a water hazard.  
    • Have been using one for a few months now and love it.  Has taken about 3 putts off my normal putts per round average.  Where I see the biggest difference is with my lag putting.  Has not made any difference with short putts, but I tend to miss the center of the face on longer putts and I have noticed a pretty significant difference.  The ball gets closer to the hole whereas my old Scotty would spray it further left, right, or short.   I am very confident it is giving me a chance at less 3 putts which was the biggest reason I bought one.   Its a very legit putter.  Worth trying out, but absolutely make sure to go to someone who knows how to fit for a putter.
    • I usually play munis. I try to have no time expectations (or for that matter, game expectations lol) when playing golf. I leave my house 45 minutes before a round, and usually get home 5 hours and thirty minutes later. 18 holes is anywhere from 4 to 4.5 hours. If I have later appointments I book golf earlier.  Over the past month I have invited a new person to golf on two separate occasions. (we are not trying to grow the game, just have an enjoyable outing with family or friend) We planned only 9 holes. Walking 9 holes and flailing at a little white ball tires a new comer. They have no idea of what pace of play means. We explained it and played pick up the f-----g ball if we started losing contact with those in front. We have a local 9 hole muni. It is often populated by occasional golfers. It is rated as intermediate difficulty. It is often slower on weekends and holidays. If I want to play there I either pick a different time or smell the roses.  If its two non golfing couples playing in front of us, I smell the roses. They have no clue what pace of play means, nor do they care. To me "golf is too slow" sounds like road rage. Golf is not instant gratification. Never has been. Need will be.
