Baby Bubba Steals The Show At The Masters

  • Rick Chandler

Augusta National is admitting women members now, and, apparently, babies. His tiny green jacket must be at the cleaners.

Oh wait, there it is.

Meet Caleb Watson, 13-month-old son of Bubba Watson, who sort of stole the spotlight today during the Par 3 Contest at Augusta National on the day before the Masters begins. There is probably nothing cuter than a baby seated on a green at a major golf course … unless it’s two babies, and they’re wrangling bunnies.

Watson cried during a press conference on Tuesday when he recalled wrapping his son in his Masters jacket after winning the event in 2012. It was about a week after he and his wife had adopted Caleb.

But I for one can’t wait until Caleb is old enough to steal dad’s hover golf cart and take it for a joyride.

Oh, and dad also had a hole-in-one during the practice round today.
