Bubba’s Heart Swells With Green Jacket Memories

By lunchtime on Tuesday, Bubba Watson was crying again.

Sweet tears. Nice tears. Bubba tears.

Watson was asked in his pre-Masters news conference if he had done anything out of the ordinary with the green jacket he won in his instant-legend playoff victory against Louis Oosthuizen.

That’s when he lost the battle with his emotions again. That’s a battle Bubba often loses.

All Watson did with the jacket, he said, was wrap his newly adopted son Caleb in it when he got home.

“That’s the only thing I did with it, out of respect, out of honor … ” Watson said, tearing up. “Out of respect and honor for Augusta National, as one of the greatest clubs we have, as one of the greatest tournaments, out of respect to them, I didn’t do any of my funny antics that I normally would do. Only thing I did was wrap Caleb up in it.”
