Bubba from Baghdad
By mustang6560 on 3/11/11
Finally, Bubba is getting the recognition he deserves - talk of being the best American golfer at the moment. As a Bubba fan, this makes me happy!
This much is a certainty -- while Watson has charged 87 spots up the world ranking in the past 14 months to No. 15, the Yanks as a troop have been in full retreat. Ergo, under the last, best-man standing principle, Bee-Dub bests Tee-Dub and the others.

Tiger Woods hasn't won in 1½ years, Phil Mickelson has seriously contended once on Sunday since last summer, and Jim Furyk has been invisible since winning the FedEx Cup last fall. Steve Stricker went to Qatar to play a few weeks ago, and it's like he never came back. Outside of Matt Kuchar, who has one victory and more top-10 finishes than any player since the beginning of 2010, nobody else is in the debate.
If you look at the stats, it's easy to see that Bubba Watson is playing the best golf among his countrymen. But in typical Bubba fashion, he's humble about it. When asked about being the best American golfer, he said:
"Not me," Watson said. "I just happened to win twice in less than a year and that was it."
Bubba used to be high strung on the golf course. He agonized over the bad shots. But with the loss of his father and an "intervention" from his caddie and his wife, Bubba has a new perspective on the course. He's relaxed. He let's his goofy personality out a lot more and he's winning!

Hopefully, his health won't get in the way of the potential year he could have. He pulled out of the WGC-Cadillac Open at the last minute because he was sick and he pulled out of the Norther Trust a few weeks with a pulled muscle.

Your the man, Bubba! Your welcome...
