When the PGA of America thought it'd be fun to bring back to the Long Drive Contest that once kicked off PGA week and was won by Jack Nicklaus (who went on to win the big event), they shaped the format of just one drive off the tenth tee Tuesday to fit the schedules of today's precious pros.
Naturally, even the simple act of one drive, one time, during practice rounds, was all too much for the whiner-than-ever Bubba Watson.
Jason Sobel reports along with Bubba's money quote. Get your Kleenex out!
“I’m there to play golf, not to hit it far,” said the namesake of BubbaGolf. “I’ve got to practice. I’ve never been to the course. I don’t need to worry about a long drive on the 10th hole.”
The poor lad!
The burdens these great thinkers of our planet must face!
