When you’re Bubba Watson, win the Masters, and are from a rural part of the country, you aren’t immortalized in bronze; you’re brought to life in corn.
Sweet Season Farms in Berrydale, Fla., honored Watson with an eight-acre corn maze portrait of his signature left-handed swing and visor. The corn maze is one of nearly 40 attractions and events that make up the Beaches to Woodlands Tour of Santa Rosa County.
“I feel honored to be represented in such a big way in my hometown,” Watson said in a release by the Beaches to Woodlands Tour. “It’s unique and very special.”

Watson, like fellow PGA Tour pros Boo Weekley and Heath Slocum, hails from Santa Rosa County and Milton High School. Watson won the Masters in 2012 and 2014, and is now the subject of the sixth sponsored corn maze by Sharon and Trent Mathews.
“What Bubba achieved by winning the Masters was an historic accomplishment that brought excitement to our household and our entire area,” Trent Mathews said in the release.
Watson will represent the U.S. Ryder Cup Team for a third time later this month, and his hometown is proud of him – corny, or not.
