Bubba Watson Adds Hitting with Right-Handed Clubs to List of Accomplishments

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterApril 5, 2013

Bubba Watson continues to prove he is far cooler than you can ever hope to be.

In this video entitled "Bubba Watson's Day Off," the left-handed superstar aims to take a brief respite from the stress of his normal life, not unlike Ferris Bueller once did.

Just like in that John Hughes movie, Watson tries out some things he doesn't normally get to enjoy, like working the pro shop and hitting with right-handed clubs.

The reigning Masters champ and ESPN's Michael Collins head over to Dubsdread Golf Course in Orlando to make like "normal" golfers.

As Collins points out, this means getting Bubba some rental clubs, but of the right-handed variety.

Of course, I thought we would see the golfer take hacks from the right side, which we certainly see at the 3:00 mark, but his drives from the left side using the back of the club are simply amazing.

This would be as good a time as any to remind you that, when he doesn't push his clubs around the course, he drives in style in his very own hovercraft. 

As you can see, there isn't much that Watson can't or won't do on a golf course.

Among the memorable highlights: The two meet a Rickie Fowler wannabe on the links and then, at the 2:44 mark, seem to frustrate some course grouches.

I have no idea why that golfer shakes his head, but if Bubba Watson wants to paint his club pink on the course and then hit with the wrong side of a driver, he will go ahead and do so. You, sir, should just sit there and enjoy it all.

The day ends, as it always does, back at the clubhouse, where Watson fields calls and takes orders at the pro shop. Not much gets done, but that doesn't matter to the course regulars treated to a celebrity sighting of a man who will defend his green jacket next week.

Bubba Watson is just better at this life thing than you are.
