It’s a big day for The Brilliantly Dumb Show as we are getting closer to a showdown with the shows long time arch enemy, Bubba Watson. It all started at the 2018 Genesis Open after a couple on camera blow-ups with fans led to me deciding to give Watson a gentle chirp as he made his way to the third tee box. A simple “Not Today Bubba” led to the shows most viral moment and a slogan that has made its rounds through the golf world.

Alright folks it’s that time again. Me and @nickyputts will be coming in to Riviera like an absolutely freight train to wreak havoc. This will be our 3rd annual trip to Riviera to give Bubba hell. Keep your eyes peeled for the “Not Today Bubba” hat and come say hello. Also take a look at my pics on the 3rd slide. NOT TODAY BUBBA
Since that tournament which Watson ended up winning, I have been back to Riviera every year. It has created a long-lasting relationship with Watson that I am not even so sure he knows we have. After numerous direct messages reaching out to Watson’s camp, we have finally got a response that has given The Brilliantly Dumb faithful some sort of hope that we can finally meet for what would be a wild podcast. A simple reply from Watson consisted of his manager’s email to get the date set up and a “thank you for the support” which makes me believe he has absolutely no idea who I am.
I’d be lying to you if I told you I don’t think Watson is great for the game because he is. Watson is one of the most well known PGA Tour players out there and has brought a new generation of golf fans into the sport. Although old school golfers may not agree, his on-air blow-ups and occasional dispute with fans have given the game of golf a lot of publicity and reasons to tune in. Now, all we can hope is that golf fans have another reason to tune in to Watson and that would be a highly anticipated appearance on The Brilliantly Dumb Show.
Bubba, if you happen to be a BroBible guy just know, we are ready when you are.
