Bubba Watson donates $100,000 to Louisiana flood relief efforts
Ted Scott and Bubba Watson are helping out where they can in Louisiana
Bubba Watson catches a lot of flak for his shortcomings (sometimes deservedly so), but he doesn't get nearly enough credit for what he does well. Watson is generous with the money he's won, and he's shown that off recently by donating $250,000 to West Virginia flood victims earlier this year as well as $100,000 to victims of the flooding going on in Louisiana right now.
Watson's caddie Ted Scott, who is from Louisiana, tweeted about this early Wednesday and noted that he would also give some of his earnings. If Watson wins all four playoff events, Scott could be on the hook for up to $60,000.
The point here is bigger than money though.
"I want people to help," said Scott on Wednesday at The Barclays. "I encourage people to get involved whether it's donating your money or donating your time. People have lost everything they own. Bubba and I have given through my church."
A great gesture by two generous guys on the PGA Tour.
