You saw golf history last April when a guy named Bubba won the Masters with, of all things, a pink driver.
The Baron of Baghdad, who now resides within the protected walls of Islesworth, will have "Big Pink" in the bag again and that would be the pink G20 driver. Ping brought out a limited edition after the Masters and sold all 5,000 with some of the proceeds going to Bubba's charity efforts that seek to raise $1,000,000 this season.
If you've taken time to study the bad things that can happen to a player at Olympic, it might be safe to say that crazy things can and will happen over 72 holes. When was the last time you started on a 520-yard par four?
Now for some reason, it doesn't seem like a reach that crazy and Bubba go together, and that 520 yards to Bubba means he'll actually have to hit a second shot with something besides a wedge.
Maybe after Rory McIlroy's scoring fest last year at Congressional, the USGA got the hint and perhaps will take the Open back to the way it used to be when par actually meant something.
Maybe it's time for the golf course to win again at the Open, the way it used to.
Problem is, nothing is the way it used to be in professional golf.
But the Open is still the Open and that makes it big. Tiger wants to be Tiger again, Phil wants a U.S. Open and Bubba?
You never know what Bubba has on his mind, but after two days with Tiger and Lefty, he's going to let someone know.
