Bubba Watson gets the thumbs up in my opinion
I like the way Bubba Watson thinks. When I had the time to play regular golf with a bunch of mates back in Australia, there was no letting up on the tee as to which club to use.
On holes which gave options of a dangerous long drive with water carry or an intelligent lay-up, one could not leave the course with dignity in-tact if the latter was chosen.
Comments could be heard, “it’s not golf if you don’t go for it", or the ever popular “you can make that easily” just to boost one’s confidence.
Of course, most of the shots were sprayed all over the place and the hole could have easily been played with a lay-up off the tee and a fair approach shot, but that one big drive every now and then that was nailed down the centre of the fairway and way over the hazards was well worth it.
That’s why I have to give credit to Bubba. He has a big drive and he is not afraid to use it. When things are not going his way, he has a crack at it and a good percentage of the time it comes off. At the end of the day, everyone loves to see a long drive.
In an ESPN article Bubba said, “I’m just making a living hitting the ball. It’s fun. I enjoy it. That’s why I hit driver today, hoping I could do something so people would cheer for me. They weren’t cheering when I was shooting 5 over.”
Like with John Daly, crowds react to the all or nothing attitude. Daly has gone on to win some majors and if Bubba can get a handle on the rest of his game he is sure to win his share too.
I for one will be watching him because my mates reckon, “he can make that easily".
