by Moody Adams Once known for his vicious temper, Bubba Watson is now famous for his laid-back Christian attitude. Watson credits three strong Christian believers—his caddy Scott, his trainer Adam Fisher (“Fish”) and his wife Angie—as the difference in his attitude.
“I’ve really got a good team around me trying to help me succeed,” said Watson, who has long supported many charities, including the upcoming Bubba’s Bash and the infamous “Golf Boys” video project. “Not just in golf, but off the golf course, to be a light for Jesus.”
The weekly Bible studies on the PGA Tour have also had a real impact on his life.
“We wanted to be Christ followers,” Watson said of he and his wife. “We wanted to do the right thing. We started turning to the Lord for our decisions.”
The couple married in September 2004 and were both baptized later that year, the day after Christmas: “I would say 2004 was my true time of becoming a Christian,” Watson said, “and shaping me into the man I am today.”
And just this week, Bubba the Man has become Bubba the Father. The Watsons began another chapter of their life, adopting a 1-month-old boy (Caleb).
