It's the Bubba questionnaire.
(slow upbeat music)
Do y'all have nicknames?
How did you get your nickname?
As soon as I was born,
my mom said I was ugly and I was chubby
and my dad agreed
and somehow Bubba came out.
Bubba Smith was playing football.
I know him as Bubba Smith though on Police Academy
and he was a big football player at the time
and so I got the nickname Bubba a minute or so
after I was born.
Who is the greatest golfer of all time?
Jack Nicholas, I think,
has the best record of all time.
I don't think, I know he does.
But I didn't get to watch him play,
so in my era of watching TV, Tiger Woods.
On a scale of one to 10,
how good looking are you?
Well I'm the scale, so I'm a 10
and everybody else is just below me.
A horse or a cow?
It's definitely a cow for me.
My grandpa he had cows in Mississippi
and so we always got to hang out with the cows
and as a kid just go mooooo
at the cows.
I don't think they liked it though.
How many green jackets do you have in your closet?
Well I don't have any in my closet,
but I have a couple at Augusta National.
What is the secret of golf?
Having a pencil with an eraser.
Which talent do you wish you had?
For me, I wish I could play basketball.
My dream was always to play in the NBA.
I wasn't very good, so I play golf now.
How many more major championships will Bubba win?
It doesn't matter how many I win, I've already got two.
What are you most proud of in life?
I'm most proud of the fact that I actually toughed it out
and got my education from the University of Georgia
and I do have the degree to prove it.
If you could ask one person one question,
who and what would it be?
Well I've already done that.
I've asked my wife, Angie Ball, at the time,
to marry me and the answer was yes
and now her name is Angie Watson.
For those of you that have kids,
how hard is it to leave your kids
when you know you have to leave and go to work?
The best answer is it sucks.
It's very difficult for me to go to a golf tournament
without my family, without my kids,
knowing that they were both adopted
and just trying to give them the better life
so it's really tough on me to leave my kids at home.
For all you baseball fans,
who is your favorite double A baseball team?
For me, the Blue Wahoos are the best team in baseball.
They are out of Pensacola, Florida
and yes I happen to own a part of 'em.
What would you change about yourself?
My looks, no.
I have way too many three puts.
