Bubba: "Justin Bieber is the only person I talked to on the phone that night after I won."

E Online has an exclusive that no self-respecting golf writer would have dared (or thought of) to ask about.

"Justin Bieber is the only person I talked to on the phone that night after I won," Watson revealed. "He called me and I talked to him on the phone and he and Selena were congratulating me, and it was a big honor that they would both call me and talk to me."

The video can be viewed here. I'd embed it, but it automatically plays and I find that annoying.

What a weird guy

Bubba is DEFINITELY not your daddy's Master's champion. I applaud his skill, but yes, he is a weird guy. Golf fights a preconception of elitism, but do we need to "dumb it down" quite so much?

Now this is an embarrassment to the sport :)

It's Bubba. What do you think he listens to -- Wagner? Though I must admit, I had thought young Mr. Bieber's following was about a third of Bubba's age and heavily female -- tweeny-bop.

Next thing, we'll find out he lards himself with Axe every day.

I'll never look at Bubba the same again.

I knew there was some reason I wanted Oosty to win, but I would have never figured this was it...

I would have taken that sort of info to my grave.

Question: Didn't he make ANY friends during his days at UGA who would have immediately started bombarding his voice mail?

My panties are wet with excitement.

Cut him a break, Bieber looks like a hot chick to me too.

This is pretty great for the game. We need young people playing golf. If bieber is interested then maybe kids will pick up clubs everywhere. While I think he's weird, too, uniqueness is interesting.

Crying and liking Bieber, The PGA tour finally has its first Teenage girl major winner!

Who's Justin Bieber ...
Now why is that beyond hard to believe?

Bubba, you need some friends.

Very very strange.

The rest of the Pensacola Mafia figured Bubba out a long time ago...

Can he bring them as guests to the Champions dinner?

Gives new meaning to the phrase "this just-in"
What's with all you guys and the Biebs? Because he is Canadian!?
04.18.2012 | Unregistered CommenterFelix
stuff like this makes me think Bubba's acting
04.18.2012 | Unregistered Commenterbob
When I first heard his name, I though it was Justin Beaver. Then upon hearing that he was from Ottawa, I was certain this was the case. When I first saw his name in print, I had to has "who is this Beeber guy?

Maybe Bubba thinks its Justin Beaver.

Bieber was hamming it up with the Toronto Maple Leaf players on the ice at some skating session earlier this year.

That team is stacked with nothing but pussies - who are only familiar the word "playoff" in a theoretical context.

That should be a warning to Bubba if Bieber wants to play a friendly round and ham it up.

Bubba's a young man with a young Canadian wife, maybe Beiber is what they listen to, he's not Beethoven , but no harm in it. Doesn't bother me in the least and should not offend anyone

Didn't Jack get a call from Shawn Cassidy after the 86 Masters?
04.18.2012 | Unregistered CommenterBrianS
Yeah, like Shaun Cassidy was so huge in 1986.

I think he was begging for change outside of Von's in Brentwood by that stage.
04.18.2012 | Unregistered Commentersgolfer
Justin Bieber? Really? Jeebus. c&c, you don't want to know.

It was Marty McFly who called Jack.
33 year old man are not even remotely in Bieber's market demo but nice try John.
04.18.2012 | Unregistered CommenterAri
Young Bieber's a professed devout Christian, hence the connection.

I'm rethinking that pink driver.

Crying non-stop, General Lee, and now this. The boy's headed for a padded cell.
