00:01
Today's your lucky day.
00:02
It's the Bubba Questionnaire.
00:03
I don't know I'd declare it my lucky day,
00:05
having to do this with Bubba.
00:07
(upbeat music)
00:11
What is the secret of golf?
00:13
I would say patience is most important.
00:15
I think it's a very key component in golf,
00:18
and just always being patient,
00:20
kind of waiting for something good to happen.
00:22
What is the secret to happiness?
00:24
Secret to happiness, I think, is just being around Bubba.
00:27
I mean he's such a happy person all the time,
00:28
that you, I think, looking at him right now,
00:31
I'm honestly just a little bit happy.
00:33
Who is the greatest golfer of all time?
00:35
I think Jack Nicklaus.
00:36
You can't argue against him,
00:38
but Tiger did some pretty impressive things.
00:40
I think if you could take bits and pieces
00:42
of both of their careers, somehow I would choose them.
00:46
How many green jackets do you have in your closet?
00:48
Not as many as you Bubba, I get it.
00:51
How many more major championships will Bubba win?
00:54
Hopefully none.
00:55
Hopefully I won't let him win anymore,
00:57
and I hopefully will also be playing
00:59
a little bit longer than you, Bubba, so we'll see.
01:01
In 1997, do you remember where you were
01:05
when Tiger Woods won the Masters?
01:08
I don't because I was not even four yet,
01:10
so I was probably running around somewhere
01:13
just annoying my parents.
01:14
On a scale of one to ten, how good looking are you?
01:18
12.
01:20
What would you change about yourself?
01:23
Win more major championships.
01:25
I don't think anyone can argue with that.
01:26
Growing up, who was your hero?
01:29
Tiger Woods was definitely my hero.
01:30
The things he did in golf when I was growing up in 2000,
01:34
early 2000s, when I was seven, eight, nine, ten.
01:37
It really kind of got me to where I want to be in golf
01:40
and really had me working hard.
01:42
Playing golf, when you get nervous,
01:45
what is your go to shot under pressure?
01:48
Mine's a low cut.
01:49
I think it's something that's always been easy for me to hit
01:52
or easier to hit.
01:53
I understand that if I could just cut across the ball
01:56
and get it working toward the target that I want,
02:00
then I feel like I have a lot more percent chance
02:03
of hitting a good shot,
02:04
and even when I'm not hitting it well, or under pressure,
02:06
that's a shot I know I can go to, and I'll be relying on it.
02:10
If you could ask one person one question,
02:12
who and what would it be?
02:15
Bubba, I'd ask you why I had to do this questionnaire.
02:18
You know what, I'm pretty fed up with him.
02:20
I'm done.
