Bubba Watson is one of the latest additions to LIV Golf. He has been injured since May and his return is not expected until next year. After the decision to become part of LIV Golf, Watson also announced himself on social media.
“When I think about the team atmosphere in 2016 at the Ryder Cup, I was number seven in the world, but I was an Assistant Captain and that was fun for me, I enjoyed it more than playing golf itself,” Watson said, as quoted by golfmonthly.
“For me to give some knowledge, to give encouragement, to help the team grow, to help the team get better and to try and win tournaments and try and grow the game on the back end, when you are talking about junior camps and what our teams can do together, it’s a no brainer.”
Bubba Watson: The atmosphere is another thing
His wife is obviously a big supporter and had a lot of influence on the decision. Bubba praised the organization of LIV Golf and the people who will give the main speech. It’s clear that Watson is impressed with the new project and can’t wait to get started.
“My wife loved it, she loved the idea, we prayed about it, we came to the decision and here we are talking to you guys. Having people on your team, it’s not an individual sport anymore, where you are out there trying to beat balls and figure out how you play the game by yourself.
“Now you have people who you can bump ideas off of. The atmosphere is another thing that we didn’t have and now we are bringing it to the light, I’ve heard nothing but great things, everyone who I’ve talked to on the Tour said it’s amazing and they were so excited that they’ve done it.”
LIV Golf continues with its story and the goals they have. Norman and the team obviously want to be in charge of the golf scene in the future. A very serious project.
