Truth & Rumors: Awkward Masters handshake, and Christina Kim vs. Bubba

We've all been there: a handshake that goes awry. Except for most of us, the awkward encounter isn't captured on live television. During the Masters. While receiving the coveted green jacket. Enter Masters champ Bubba Watson and chairman of Augusta National Billy Payne. As Payne instructs 2010 Master's champion Charl Schwartzel to present Bubba with his green jacket, Bubba mistakes Payne's outstretched hand as an offer of congratulations. With a sly move that suggests this isn't the first time this has happened in his life, Bubba swivels to offer his now outstretched hand to Schwartzel. Payne, a little slow on the uptake, then realizes Bubba was trying to shake his hand, but offers his back a fraction of a second too late and receives a whole lot of Bubba's cold, cruel shoulder. Commence awkward face scratch. This encounter would probably be a whole lot more embarrassing if not for the fact that Bubba just won the freakin' Masters. In fact, I think it may raise a more important question: Could the Masters green jacket ceremony be any more boring? 'Bashful Prince' Ishikawa finds his princess After another lackluster showing at the Masters (he's missed the cut three out of four times), Ryo Ishikawa returned home to Japan where legions of disappointed fans and reporters awaited. According to The Wall Street Journal, though, Ishikawa's Masters performance was quickly forgotten as he announced upon arrival that he is now engaged to his junior high school sweetheart. 

“I turned 20, so I feel like it’s a good time to make this decision,” Ishikawa said, referring to his coming of age in Japan.
Back in Japan, Ishikawa’s face is ubiquitous both on and off the green. He was the face for 17 ad campaigns from Panasonic to Lotte in 2011, appearing in more commercials than any other male celebrity for the third year running, according to market researcher Nihon Monitor.
“I informed my sponsors last month,” Ishikawa said. “And I got their blessing.”
