Oakley may have lost Rory, but they gained Bubba.
And it will probably be a good trade, as they are already having fun with Bubba Watson’s outgoing personality.
Oakley has even created an accessories bag with the slogan "Viva La Bubba," which makes him appear just a little bit like a banana republic dictator! Bubba, we know you are freedom loving and not a dictator, but let's face it, some days we'd all like to have our own country.
Some of Bubba’s clothes will debut this week at the Waste Management Open, according to staffers at the Oakley booth at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando last week.
The outfits for this week, which Oakley said are part of the Viva La Bubba collection, are far more interesting than what Oakley currently shows online in their shopping area.
So go to your nearest golf shop, and ask for the new Bubbalicious shirts, slacks, belts and see if you can score a Viva La Bubba bag.
Does that bag design make you want to watch a movie with Carmen Miranda? Cha cha cha. It's perfect for watches and money clips, lip balm or sunscreen.
There are also a fleet of belts for stylish golfers.
Bubba is still using Ping clubs, but he has switched to the new G25 driver. Just for him, they’ve done the driver in pink!
There are also high-tech, lightweight golf shoes from Oakley's Cipher line that have nanospikes.
No word yet on what shoes Bubba will actually wear, but keep your eyes peeled.
