Tiger Woods, Tim Tebow And Others Congratulate Masters Champion Bubba Watson
Bubba Watson defeated Louis Oosthuizen on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff to win the Masters, blasting a picture-perfect shot from the woods to the green on the 10th hole of Augusta National to set up the victory. The whole world was watching — including a number of the biggest stars in professional sports.
Fellow golf star Tiger Woods, fellow devout Christian Tim Tebow and a number of others took to Twitter this evening to congratulate Watson. Here’s a sampling of the notable names:
Congrats @bubbawatson. Fantastic creativity. Now how creative will the champions dinner be next year?—
