Bubba Watson may be one of the most recognizable golfers in the game today, but for at least one week, he's going to have to take a back seat -- no pun intended -- to his car at the Waste Management Open, after local tournament organizers, The Thunderbirds, decided to have a little fun with Bubba.
Instead of throwing his name on the parking sign this week, they instead decided to give it to "General Lee," who happens to be Bubba's brand new ride. If you didn't know by now, he threw down $110,000 and bought the original General Lee from the TV show "The Dukes of Hazard, which seems like a small price to pay for the iconic ride.
Aaron Baddeley happened to notice the parking sign when he was walking through the lot and tweeted out to Bubba: "@bubbawatson looks like u didn't get a parking spot the wm phx open but ur car did!!"
No word yet if he plans on driving the car to the course Thursday-Sunday, but considering the spot belongs to General Lee, he may want to roll with it all four days.
