Bubba Watson will talk Masters win with David Letterman
Fresh from his upset victory at the 2012 Masters, golfer Bubba Watson will bask in the spotlight Tuesday on CBS' "Late Show With David Letterman."
Watson's victory in Augusta was his first major tournament win, playing an idiosyncratic, self-taught brand of the sport he calls "Bubba Golf."
He won Sunday in a sudden-death tie-breaker that some golf nuts are calling one of the most thrilling matches in ages. Watson was battling Louis Oosthuizen for the victory when his ball landed deep in the woods on the second playoff hole of the 10th green. Watson somehow managed to blast the ball out of the woods and clinch the win.
CBS aired the Masters coverage, which made Letterman's show a natural pedestal for the winner. Unfortunately for CBS, ratings for the Masters plunged more than 20%, as superstar Tiger Woods struggled to tie for 40th place, thus ending a hoped-for comeback that began two weeks ago with his win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
What did you think of Watson's win, assuming you watch golf?
