Bubba says he needs to "improve as a man"
By Torleif Sorenson on 4/7/15
Yesterday, we told you about some of the results of an eye-opening ESPN poll of 103 professional golfers. In that survey, ESPN posed this question:
__________ is in a fight in the parking lot. You're not helping him.Bubba Watson "won" that poll with 23 responses; followed by Patrick Reed, Rory Sabbatini, and Robert Allenby.
Earlier today, Golf Channel asked Watson about that poll result. His response:
"I take it as I need to improve as a man. I need to get better. And I think over my career, since my rookie season to now, I've gotten better. But obviously there's more room for me to improve as a man.In addition to comments below, we have set up this poll for you to answer the same question about five PGA Tour players.

"I'm glad that people call me out when they do; that's the only way I can get better. If I don't know about it, then I can't improve."
A tip of the hat to Bubba for a very thoughtful response. Whether he follows that path remains to be seen but that was a mature response to a tough situation.
Torleif Sorenson says:
I would think this could be a long process for Bubba, given that he has a stressful, high-profile career. Part of the vote may have been because of his infamous on-course treatment of his caddie.
