Masters winner Watson not ashamed of his Christian faith

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (BP) -- There's something different about Bubba Watson. And he doesn't care if you know it. The winner of the 2012 Masters golf tournament realizes he's not like most famous athletes. In fact, he welcomes it. [QUOTE@left@180='There's people who want to put down Christians. I try to tell them Jesus loves you.'-- Bubba Watson]"People always ask 'Why is Bubba different?'" said Watson during a pre-Masters phone interview from Scottsdale, Ariz. "They're just trying to figure it out." Watson's identity is not wrapped up in his freakishly long drives from his lanky 6-foot-3, 180-pound left-handed swing -- he leads the Tour with a 315-yard average. Rather, take one look at his Twitter profile and you may figure out what's different about Watson: "@bubbawatson: Christian. Husband. Daddy. Pro Golfer. Owner of General Lee 1." And pay close attention to the order. Watson is an outspoken Christian golfer and he uses his Twitter account -- along with his platform as one of the PGA Tour's magnetic personalities -- to share about his faith in Christ.
