Why you should root for Bubba Watson

Bubba Watson announced his intention to buy a Dukes of Hazzard General Lee replica car to celebrate in the event he wins the Bob Hope Classic on Monday.

"I'm definitely going to get me a Dukes of Hazzard car, a replica that I'm definitely going to get if I win a golf tournament, because my wife said I can do that if I win," he said. "So if I win, I'm getting a Dukes of Hazzard General Lee."

Is there another player on the PGA Tour playing not for pride, nor money, but for a General Lee Dodge Charger?

Watson and Alex Prugh are tied for the lead entering the final round on the Arnold Palmer Private Course at PGA West, a double-bogey at the last hole on Sunday preventing him from holding an outright lead.
