Bubba Watson DONATES special club to PLAY YELLOW charity

After becoming Play Yellow's newest ambassador, Bubba Watson donated a special driver to Jack and Barbara Nicklaus who organise this special children's charity. 

At Muirfield Village, Watson donated the club with his trademark pink head with a yellow shaft but this was after the 42-year-old hit a big drive with the club in front of a crowd.

The two-time Masters champion was announced as an ambassador for Play Yellow on June 2nd and it is a charity that attempts to bring the golf world together to help the 10 million children who are treated in Children's Miracle Network Hospitals every year. 

As is shown in the video above, Watson's involvement in the charity will primarily benefit the Studer Family Children's Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart in Pensacola, Florida which is his local CMN hospital.

This hospital, which opened in May 2019, is the recipient of generous donations from the 12-time PGA Tour winner and his wife Angie and this helped the construction of the four-story building.

Watson was among other players to show their support for Nicklaus' charity last week at the Memorial Tournament. Rickie Fowler, Collin Morikawa and Max Homa all wore yellow ribbons on their caps to support the cause.

Play Yellow was launched by Nicklaus and his wife in 2019 and it strives to bring the golf world together and raise the crucial funds needed by CMN Hospitals and the patients they tend to.
