Bubba Watson in tears AGAIN at The Masters

Blubba Watson II! Masters champion in tears AGAIN on return to defend his title at Augusta (two days before the tournament even starts!)

Breakdown: Watson cries on the shoulder of his mother Molly after his 2012 victory

Seemingly beaten, with his ball
trapped in the straw between the pine trees and towering magnolias, he
somehow contrived to find the green from 165 yards with his wedge before two-putting to
victory.

Watson starts his defence on Thursday
alongside Ian Poulter, with 2012 US Amateur champion Steven Fox, in
what promises to be a fascinating group.

The Englishman, of course, reduced
Watson to tears of sorrow last October as he steered Europe to a
miraculous Ryder Cup victory in Medinah.

For Bubba's sake, let's hope he makes the cut on Friday. Or else he might just cry again…

Wayne Rooney: I named my pet rabbit "Speedo" after Gary Speed when I was 11

I loved “Speedo” so much I named my pet rabbit after him, reveals United star Rooney

Wayne Rooney publicly paid tribute to Gary Speed for the first time, revealing how he worshipped the former Everton midfielder as boyhood Toffees fan.

The Manchester United striker expressed his sorrow over the death of Wales boss Speed, who tragically took his own life aged 42 last month.

England forward Rooney, 26, admitted he idolised the former Leeds, Newcastle, Bolton and Sheffield United star, who spent two years at Goodison Park, so much so he named his pet rabbit “Speedo” when he was 11.

“It was such a big shock for everyone when we heard the news of his death,” Rooney told The Sun.

“I don’t think anyone saw it coming. It’s a sad loss.

“I just thought he was a great player. I met him a few times.

“I used to love the way he played, box to box — late runs into the box. He scored some great goals for us.

“I remember when he was at Everton. I got a rabbit when I was younger, so

I named it after him. I named the rabbit Speedo.”

Rooney”s Old Trafford team-mate Ryan Giggs, meanwhile, has been urged to replace Speed in charge of the Wales national team.

The Football Association of Wales will make a decision on who should succeed Speed in the new year.

But former Welsh international striker Malcolm Allen believes veteran midfielder Giggs should step in.

“There”s only one man in my opinion that comes at the top of that tree and take us forward and that”s Ryan Giggs,” he said.

“I do hope he takes this offer up this time. He”s coming to an age now, he”s 38 [and] he”s coming to the end of his career.

“He”s won everything in the game. Now let him take forward [the] good work Gary Speed started.

“I”m sure it will hit the squad hard because of what he [Speed] built. That”s why I believe it”s so important to get the right profile of manager in.

“He”s made his opinions very clear that he wants to become a manager at one stage.

“There”s no better place to start I don”t think at this present time [than] with the Welsh team that we”ve got.”
