RandBall: Watson hasn't always appeared so mature, local golfer says

The folks at AM-1500 fired up their Tee Time golf show for the first time this year on Saturday -- just in time for local golfer Joe Stansberry to regale listeners with a story about a less mature time in the life of golfer Bubba Watson, who would of course go on to win the Masters on Sunday for the second time in three years.


Stansberry, who is more than 20 years older than Watson, was paired up with him during an event when Watson was an amateur. Many of us in our younger days had some maturing to do, but the review from Stansberry certainly was not favorable.

"He's just a little, whiny brat. He is throwing clubs, he's banging clubs. He's swearing. He's just, you know, being obnoxious."

Stansberry goes on to describe the entirety of the round. The podcast isn't up on the site yet, but we have audio of the segment on Watson if you care to have a listen.

Bubba then vs. Bubba now seems totally different.
