>>Bubba Watson: Olympics About More Than Playing Golf
Golf in the Olympics has taken a beating over the past few weeks. From so many golfers withdrawing to Rory McIlroy lighting everything on fire at The Open last week, it hasn't been the best month for golf as a global entity. Bubba Watson spoke candidly about that recently with Dan Patrick and explained to him why he's excited to go to Rio for the Olympics.
Watson said quote-"My wife ... we've adopted both of our kids so there wasn't a scare from Zika. I've never had a security issue so I've never been worried about security down there. So I was a go from the get-go."
Watson added quote - "A gold medal is not really what I'm looking at. Just getting on the team and being a part of this. The gold medal or any medal is a bonus. I'm looking at it from a different perspective. I have tickets from Monday to Saturday so I can be a fan. I'm going to sit with the general public."
