Bubba Watson in 2011: 'I care' about Augusta National excluding women

Posted at 2:47 PM by Mike Walker | Categories: 2012 Masters, Augusta National, Bubba Watson

At his post-victory press conference on Sunday evening, Bubba Watson was asked about winning the 2012 Masters and being a new father, but not about Augusta National's all-male membership. However, Golf Magazine asked Watson about Augusta National's membership policy in its 2011 Masters survey. The survey is anonymous, but Watson wanted his response on the record:

Does it bother you that the club's membership excludes women?

"Yeah, I care, and you can quote me on it." —Bubba Watson

Watson's fellow Tour pros weren't as concerned. Ninety percent of the 40 Tour players surveyed said that they were not bothered that women can't be members at Augusta National.
