Bubba's Belt Buckle
For Golf Digest reader Tim Terchek the state of the economy, coupled with the photo of Bubba Watson's glittery belt buckle in the December issue, left a sour taste.
That's great. Bubba Watson, who has never won a tournament of any note, can spend $25,000 for a belt buckle. Remind me never to pay any money to see him play. He obviously makes too much already.
For the record: In our video about the belt, Bubba explains that a friend of his fabricated it. The buckle has been valued at $25,000, he says, but I suspect Bubba got a deal.
Your letter, though, is an example of a new filter through which our readers are viewing stories: It might be called the half-my-office-just-lost-their-jobs filter. Rose-colored glasses are out.
