"I never got this far in my dreams"

"I never got this far in my dreams" was the response Bubba Watson gave when asked how it felt to win the Masters. He was overcome with emotion and was struggling to hold back the tears however the elation he was experiencing was clear to see. He was just being brutally honest as he has done before when admitting he plays the game of golf for the money. And this straight talking, from the hip delivery has got Bubba in hot water many times before including the infamous remarks he made about some famous French landmarks whilst in France. In fact Bubba is unconventional in many different ways including the way he hits a golf ball. And nobody gave him a chance of winning.

Other things of interest which tend to get less coverage in the media are his love of life, his strong Christian faith and his incredible work for charity. But these facts don't sell papers.

What I'm interested in is quite simple. Now that Bubba has surpassed his dreams what will he go on to do next? If he can win a Masters event without believing he can then surely the skies the limit?
