White Sulpher Springs, WV (May 2, 2014) - It was a thrilling end to the 2014 Masters for Greenbrier Sporting Club Member Bubba Watson on Sunday, April 13th as he finished 8 under, and slipped on his second Green Jacket at Augusta National.
Bubba became the 17th golfer to win multiple Masters Championships, joining a league of legends such as Gary Player, Nick Faldo, former Greenbrier Golf Pro Emeritus, Sam Snead, as well as The Greenbrier’s current Golf Pro Emeritus, Tom Watson. (Fun Fact: Now both Watsons have 2 Masters win each: Tom won in 1977 & 1981 – Bubba won in 2012 & 2014.)
After a trip to Waffle House, and a “few” media appearances, Bubba and his wife Angie headed up to West Virginia to relax after his momentous victory and to also join their Sporting Club family in celebration. On Friday, April 18th, over 200 Members joined Bubba and Angie for a very special Happy Hour on The Event Lawn. Menu fare included Waffle House inspired Grilled Cheese, Masters Pimento Cheese, and sugar cookies equally inspired by the tournament. Members also had the opportunity to be one-on-one with the winner, and congratulate him on his historical, and well deserved achievement.

Sam Snead’s Masters jacket is the only one found outside of Augusta, GA and is part of our Snead memorabilia at The Sporting Club Lodge. We love this photo as it also shows Snead making his remarks after his Masters’ win.
