“Bubba Golf” at Palmetto Dunes Teaches Golfers to Play Focused While Having Fun – and Hit Some Crazy Shots, Too

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – PGA tour professional Bubba Watson amazed golf fans with breathtaking, and sometimes crazy, shots on his way to winning the 2012 Master’s at Augusta National. This summer, golfers can learn how to model Bubba from top to bottom through Palmetto Dunes Golf Academy’s new “Bubba Golf” instructional class and by outfitting themselves in Travis Mathew at the resort’s Robert Trent Jones Course Pro Shop. The Jones Pro Shop offers the largest selection of Travis Mathew, Bubba’s choice of apparel, on Hilton Head Island.

“Bubba Golf,” led by PGA professional and Palmetto Dunes Director of Golf Instruction Doug Weaver, teaches golfers how to be creative while mastering the game. Weaver describes “Bubba Golf” as adventurous, light-hearted and instinctive. The program focuses on the mechanics of making specific trouble shots while learning to think less and focus better.

“Bubba Watson’s genius is in his simplicity,” says Weaver. “His childlike faith allows him to utilize the fundamentals of golf to create exciting and adventurous shots. I’ll teach players to increase their smile and decrease their strokes.”

“Bubba Golf” is every Thursday from 3:00-3:50 p.m. at the Robert Trent Jones Course at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort through August 31. The cost for the program is $25 and is open to golfers ages 10 and over. “Bubba Golf” is one of 12 programs currently offered as part of the Palmetto Dunes Golf Academy. Private lessons are also available.

The pro shop at the Robert Trent Jones Course carries a large selection of Travis Mathew apparel for those wanting to outfit themselves in the popular Bubba gear. The store sells polo shirts, plaid and board shorts, pants and T-shirts emblazoned with “Bubba Golf” and a picture of Bubba hooking the winning shot at the Master’s. The shop is also one of only six Nike Golf TTC Concept shops, a co-branding initiative between Nike Golf, Tag Heuer and Cole Haan and is the only Nike Golf Concept shop in the South.
