Congrats to Bubba Watson on winning the Masters today!
Bubba has been good to Golfdom in the past, and he clearly is an advocate of the superintendent and one of those golfers who "gets it." I had a chance to chat with Bubba at Congressional during last year's U.S. Open, and this is what he told me about superintendents and their work:
