I thought you were extremely brave to let everyone watching know about your fears. I think most people in your position tend to hide their imperfections. No one is perfect so, I applaud your open and honest interview. We (the public) hold our athletes and celebrities to higher standards because, of their unique gift. Often leaving out the human element which of course, is the same for every person. The old saying "he still puts his pants on one leg at a time" comes to mind. We forget that you, too are humans and endure the same trials and tribulations as everyone else. I really like you, Bubba Watson, never thought any other way. You are different and that is a wonderful thing! It is to be embraced not, explained away. Some of the greatest minds and talents in the world were different. That's not because, they are not 'normal." It was because they were "extraordinary!" Bubba Watson you are an "extraordinary man" and that you can not nor should you try to change.

I have always admired you as a golfer, a man, a husband and as a father. However, your latest decision to join the LIV tour leaves me speechless. This group has authorised the death and dismemberment of a human being. Also, their stance on women's rights is repugnant and evil. Please don't say its for the money. How many more millions do you need? I refer you to Greg Norman's comment regarding their actions; "Everybody makes mistakes." Wow!!! God help us all.
