WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Professional golfer Bubba Watson said Tuesday he’s looking forward to making the Greenbrier Resort his home away from home.
Watson, the 2012 Masters champ, and the resort announced that he’s joining the team of professional golfers who represent the resort.
Watson also said he’ll be building a house at the Greenbrier Sporting Club.
“I was blown away when I played The Old White TPC earlier this year,” Watson said in a Facebook post. ”My family and I had a great time experiencing all of the different amenities the property offers and decided this was the perfect place for us. The Greenbrier has everything and more that I look for in a golf resort and I look forward to creating lasting memories with my family here.”
Watson joins The Greenbrier’s Golf Pro Emeritus Tom Watson, Kenny Perry and 2012 U.S. Open golf champion Webb Simpson on the Greenbrier team.
Resort owner Jim Justice said the Greenbrier would soon have Bubba-themed tees and a raffle giving guests a chance to play with Bubba Watson on the Old White TPC in the future.
