Video: Bubba Watson hits opening tee shot while crowd goes wild

By Shane Bacon | Blogger

There is a great scene in Happy Gilmore in which the title character riles up the crowd before he hits a shot, a no-no at most golf events (QUIET PLEASE!). It's a fun little reminder that Happy is different than most golfers.

Enter Bubba Watson, a guy who seems to do everything on the golf course a little different (no swing coach, pink driver). Out in the first afternoon fourballs match, Watson was last to hit and had the crowd go wild before he teed off -- a cool atmosphere in such a serious setting.

Watson made a good swing, twirled his club and was off.
