Bubba Watson went on CBS This Morning on Wednesday to talk about the Masters, where his game is, and Tiger Woods.

He told CBS that Woods was "the guy to beat," though I thought his comment about his life off the course getting "a lot better" was more interesting.

He also talked a little bit about his crazy hovercraft golf cart, saying "it's just fun."

Watson also commented briefly on the Golf Boys: "We wanted to bring light to the game of golf instead of be boring."

They've certainly accomplished that.

My favorite part of the video is host Charlie Rose leading with, as dryly as possible, "[he] starred in a second rap video" as if it was the most appalling thing he'd ever heard.

Watson is making the media rounds this week. He told CNN on Tuesday that he hopes Woods gets sick at Augusta.

He also had some good advice for amateur and pro golfers alike:

It's a tough game, everybody's going to hit bad shots, we just have to overcome that and hit the next shot better.

And his wife and kid are making sure to keep an eye on him back home:
