    I love your small comments about everything. Are you trying to boost your post total so you can sell without paying the $5 fee in the BST?

    Well if that’s the case I’d say he isn’t trying very hard since he’s been a member for a year and a half.

    I personally always wonder if he’s ever going to ditch that hideous bimatrix shaft. Technology marches on and it is a relic, but he sure seems to dig it. I guess if it ain’t broke don’t try and fix it.







    Oh.....and his place is candy and ice cream for anyone that cares.

    hybrid and two iron in the same loft and a 5 wood at 17.5. probably has the 5 wood cranked strong as he has always played a 4 wood in the past. seems like a lot of over lap at the top of the bag.

    iblade 2 iron but keeps his S55, will he ever change those S55, we know they won't break so Bubba most likely retires before those irons are not playable

    Sometimes is not about the gaping but about the shot making capabilities. I bet he can hit enough different shots/yardages with each club that he cares less about the distances they travel and more about the trajectories and spin combinations. A thousand ways to try and get safely in to tight fairways (or likely a certain par 3)

    agreed, but his bag still seems top heavy to me. obviously it works for him, and he know more what works for him than i do.

    His clubs are all facing the wrong way! Seriously, I wish he would start to get in the mix again on the weekends. I enjoy watching him shape shots and do things you ordinarily don't see the average pro do. Also it is so cool to see a pro gaming a Redwood. My favorite Ping putter ever.

    Agree. He’s trending in the right direction. Would not be surprised to see him in the top 10 or better this week too.

    If you count them up, he has 15 clubs, so obviously the 2 iron/hybrid is Jordan Spieth style. He uses 1 of the 2 depending on fit for the specific course.

    I feel like I'm one of the few that likes Bubba. Hits crazy shots, does everything differently, seems charitable outside of golf.



    He does have a terrible attitude on occasion, but everyone has flaws. I'm not going to kill him for it.



    The bag/club setup is fascinating

    I really want to like the guy. I too have struggled with mental health issues but I just can’t get over the walking contradiction that he is. I have a hard time trying to mesh the over the top bible thumping with the outright abuse he lays on his caddy and other people. You want to bible thump like Ben Crane or 1/2 the other guys on tour, cool. You want to have an attitude and get fired up like Tiger and Pat Perez, cool. You want to talk about Jesus and then drop every four-letter word in the book on your caddy, that’s a problem.



    His clubs are nice though.

    Yes the Redwood is back.



    I like Bubba too. I’m not sure why you would stamp or etch your name all over everything but that’s how he rolls.



    For you Bubba haters, John Rahm or Bubba Watson?

    Great comparison, I am a fan of Bubba and don’t get the hate towards him while at the same time I do not like Rahm one bit for absolutely no reason whatsoever. Interesting. Lol

    On the telecast they said he made an equipment change to get back on track. I'm assuming they meant ball, since these look pretty much like the same clubs he always uses.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
