Life is good for Bubba Watson.
He received a hero’s welcome upon returning to his hometown of Bagdad, Fla. after winning his second green jacket. He then launched the Bubba Watson Show on his website, snagged a selfie while touring the Ping gold putter vault and bought lunch for the entire company during stops with his main sponsors, Ping and Oakley.
Now he can add receiving game-worn shoes from the NBA’s MVP to the list.
Watson tweeted a photo of his courtside seats for the game in LA and watched the Oklahoma City Thunder defeat the Los Angeles Clippers to move to the Western Conference Finals. After Durant finished putting up 39 points and 16 rebounds to seal the victory, he trotted over to Watson and presented him with the shoes and a solid bro-hug.
Not a bad few months for Bubba.
