GIF: Bubba Watson Leaves Billy Payne Hanging During Green Jacket Ceremony

This was totally an accident, but still funny to see. During a ceremony as proper as the winner being awarded a green jacket following The Masters, one expects everything to be kind of scripted out. As Bubba Watson went to accept his green jacket, though, he didn't even bother shaking the hand of Billy Payne. The Augusta National chairman was left hanging awkwardly.

It was pretty great. Payne extended his hand, pulled it back, Watson extended his and faked him out by shaking Charl Schwartzel's hand. I wish I could say he planned it, but it must have been an accident.


So awkward, so wonderful.
