One week prior to The Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, Georgia, two-time Masters champion golfer Bubba Watson sits down for an interview with 60 Minutes. Watson, who has a reputation on the course for being at times sour or distant, tells correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi that he has “a lot of mental issues…I’m just so fearful of things, which I shouldn’t be.” Those fears include heights, buildings falling on him, the dark, and crowds. Watson admits to being fearful of strangers watching him on the golf course. Watson’s caddie Ted Scott attests, “He’s a mess. But he’s a fun mess.”
The profile of Watson also includes conversations with the two other people — besides his caddie — who Watson trusts. That’s his wife Angie and his financial advisor Randall Wells. It’s a good thing Wells is in trust category: Watson has earned almost $40 million from playing golf. 60 Minutes airs Sundays at 7pm on CBS.
