The mystery of Bubba Watson's finger tattoo has been officially solved!

December 03, 2014

A few months ago, people on Twitter noticed what appeared to be a tattoo on one of Bubba Watson's fingers. He hadn't mentioned anything about it, so we concluded in our impromptu investigation that it almost definitely was a tattoo, and that he got it sometime between the end of the PGA (Aug. 10) and the start of the Barclays ten days later.

Everyone suspected that the tattoo was probably of his wife's name, but no one could confirm it because Bubba wasn't playing as much, and then Thanksgiving rolled around and we all got distracted because of all the food.

But not intrepid Golf Channel reporter Jason Sobel! He cornered Bubba at the Hero World Challenge and got the first good picture of the tattoo coupled with some interesting nuggets. Turns out Bubba got the ink in honor of his 10th wedding anniversary and it cost just $60. Good deal.
