Bubba Watson Involved In Car Chase With Alleged Stalker

Bubba Watson calls on his caddie for some odd overtime duty.

Bubba Watson, who bombed out of this week’s Memorial Tournament after two rounds, may have more on his mind than diapers and golf. The 2012 Masters champ weaved a tale for the Associated Press’ Doug Ferguson of a mad driver pursuing him and his family around the streets of Dublin, Ohio, on Tuesday night.

According to what Watson told Ferguson, some maniac followed Watson, his wife Angie, and their son from his “Bubba Bash” concert to their rental home during a car chase that involved a pit stop so the golfer could take the wheel from Angie and an SOS call to get his caddie to intervene.

"A car chased me," Watson said after shooting a 74 and missing the cut Friday. "Angie was driving. She had to pull over. I switched to driving so I could drive through someone's yard if I had to. But we had to drive away from our house, the house we rented. We drove for 37 minutes."

Watson said he phoned his looper, Ted Scott, to do what, exactly, was unclear. Hand him a 9-iron to smash the window of the follower, who, apparently waited patiently for Angie to scootch over?

"Teddy was trying to find me in his car so he could block him," said Watson. "When you start dealing with that, when you have the kid with you, it's not a good situation."

No, but it sure is weird.

All’s well that end’s well, apparently. Watson said he “kept driving around and they finally gave up.”
