Bubba Watson went to a Waffle House restaurant instead of Disney World to celebrate his win at the Masters golf tournament.
Watson is apparently a fan of the 24-hour breakfast eatery that is particularly popular in the south.
Yesterday, the golfer won $1.62 million by emerging victorious in the Masters tournament at Augusta National in Georgia.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, only 17 golfers in history have managed to score more than one Masters championship, and Watson’s two wins puts him on a very short list of players who have accomplished that feat. Watson previously won the tournament in 2012. He shot 69 on the final round Sunday and pulled away from Jordan Speith in winning the coveted green jacket, putting him at 8-under for the tournament. At 20, Speith was also after another PGA milestone in his attempt to become the youngest Masters champion in history.
At the press conference after the match ended, Watson admitted, “I got lucky enough to have two green jackets. It’s amazing to be up here one time to talk. A second time is amazing.”
The Masters victory was Watson’s sixth overall PGA win.
Commenting on Watson’s late-night fast-food meal with his wife and some friends, a Waffle House executive said that “We are very fortunate to call Bubba Watson one of our regulars. After growing up in Florida and going to school in Georgia, we were glad to be there for him as he came up the ranks in golf. It’s a testament to Bubba’s character that even though he has two green jackets, he still comes to us for his grilled cheese and hash browns. All of the Waffle House Nation is proud today.”
Reportedly, Bubba Watson even considered having a Waffle House-catered meal at the Augusta Champions Dinner in 2013.
