Masters Winner Bubba Watson owns the General Lee from “Dukes of Hazzard”


Bubba Watson won the 2012 Master’s. Before he took home the green jacket, he got himself another prize; that he could use for a possible parade lap. NASCAR and track officials unfortunately canceled plans to have pro golfer Bubba Watson drive the car from the television series “The Dukes of Hazzard” at Phoenix International Raceway because of concerns about a negative reaction to the infamous Confederate flag that sits atop the car that year.
