Bubba Watson Enjoyed Meeting Chris Paul More Than, Ahem, Winning
Call it the anti-Sheen (that's still funny, right?), because Bubba Watson would rather meet other famous athletes than actually win golf tournaments.
Or that's what he said on Monday after taking down Webb Simpson in a playoff at the Zurich Classic to win his third PGA Tour event in 10 months, forcing me to proclaim him the best American in the game of golf right now.
Honestly though, isn't this the type of think that makes people love Bubba? Sure, he's a famous golfer that just made over a million bucks for his win on Sunday, but he is just a giddy as you and I would be at meeting Chris Paul, a guy that single-handedly took the Lakers to six games.
And the funniest part? CHRIS PAUL WAS ROOTING FOR WEBB SIMPSON!
Look at the following tweet from Paul before he headed out to the Zurich Classic on Sunday:
I mean, that is great. Bubba is pumped to meet Paul, and Paul was rooting for buddy Webb the whole day. It's a full circle of slobber!
