Bubba Watson is one of the most entertaining golfers on the planet, with his style of 'Bubba golf' securing him two Masters victories, as well as two World Golf Championships.

Throughout all of Bubba's successes, he has had his wife, Angie, supporting him, with the pair regularly seen at PGA Tour events. Get to know her here.

The pair first met when Bubba was at the University of Georgia playing in a pickup basketball game. Angie, who had just graduated, was watching that game.

During the match, someone accidently crashed into Angie on the side-lines and, once Bubba checked she was okay, the two struck up a conversation. It was from that point they began dating and would eventually marry in 2004.

Angie played basketball at the University of Georgia where she helped the team reach the Final Four in 1999. She would then play in the WNBA (Women's National Basketball Association) with the Charlotte Sting for a season. She also played abroad in Italy and France. Unfortunately, leg injuries brought an end to her career. After retiring, she began managing the business side of her husband's career instead.

Additionally, Bubba has admitted that on more than one occasion she has stopped him from quitting golf. Back in 2017, he was struggling with his game a lot: "but Angie basically told me to stop whining and man up. She’s a lot tougher than I am. I get a paper cut and I’m out for a week or so, but she wasn’t going to let me sit around looking for pity.”

The pair have two adopted children, Caleb and Dakota in which they have semi-open relationships with their birth mothers.

Angie said; “After Dakota came along I actually said I want to get Caleb’s birth mom a cell phone to let her know how great we’re doing and how much we appreciate her and love her and what she did for us. It’s made our relationship a lot more open and I think it’s helped everybody heal a lot more that they made the right decision for these babies.”
