It's the Bubba questionnaire.
00:03
(slow upbeat music)
00:08
Do y'all have nicknames?
00:09
How did you get your nickname?
00:11
As soon as I was born,
00:12
my mom said I was ugly and I was chubby
00:15
and my dad agreed
00:17
and somehow Bubba came out.
00:19
Bubba Smith was playing football.
00:21
I know him as Bubba Smith though on Police Academy
00:23
and he was a big football player at the time
00:27
and so I got the nickname Bubba a minute or so
00:29
after I was born.
00:31
Who is the greatest golfer of all time?
00:33
Jack Nicholas, I think,
00:34
has the best record of all time.
00:37
I don't think, I know he does.
00:39
But I didn't get to watch him play,
00:41
so in my era of watching TV, Tiger Woods.
00:45
On a scale of one to 10,
00:47
how good looking are you?
00:49
Well I'm the scale, so I'm a 10
00:53
and everybody else is just below me.
00:55
Favorite animal?
00:57
A horse or a cow?
00:59
It's definitely a cow for me.
01:01
My grandpa he had cows in Mississippi
01:05
and so we always got to hang out with the cows
01:08
and as a kid just go mooooo
01:11
at the cows.
01:12
I don't think they liked it though.
01:14
How many green jackets do you have in your closet?
01:17
Well I don't have any in my closet,
01:19
but I have a couple at Augusta National.
01:22
What is the secret of golf?
01:24
Having a pencil with an eraser.
01:26
Which talent do you wish you had?
01:28
For me, I wish I could play basketball.
01:31
My dream was always to play in the NBA.
01:33
I wasn't very good, so I play golf now.
01:36
How many more major championships will Bubba win?
01:39
It doesn't matter how many I win, I've already got two.
01:43
What are you most proud of in life?
01:44
I'm most proud of the fact that I actually toughed it out
01:48
and got my education from the University of Georgia
01:51
and I do have the degree to prove it.
01:53
If you could ask one person one question,
01:56
who and what would it be?
01:58
Well I've already done that.
02:00
I've asked my wife, Angie Ball, at the time,
02:03
to marry me and the answer was yes
02:06
and now her name is Angie Watson.
02:08
For those of you that have kids,
02:10
how hard is it to leave your kids
02:12
when you know you have to leave and go to work?
02:15
The best answer is it sucks.
02:18
Oh man.
02:21
It's very difficult for me to go to a golf tournament
02:23
without my family, without my kids,
02:24
knowing that they were both adopted
02:26
and just trying to give them the better life
02:28
so it's really tough on me to leave my kids at home.
02:31
For all you baseball fans,
02:34
who is your favorite double A baseball team?
02:38
For me, the Blue Wahoos are the best team in baseball.
02:42
They are out of Pensacola, Florida
02:44
and yes I happen to own a part of 'em.
02:47
What would you change about yourself?
02:50
My looks, no.
02:52
My putting.
02:53
I have way too many three puts.
02:55
