You know that one guy in your golf group who always think they know what to do? They are the ones who are telling you this putt breaks left when it clearly is breaking right, thinking that they can drive the water 280 yards out, and are bragging about their game knowledge? They are annoying, and almost always never score the lowest of the group.
However, when you’re giving advice out to the pros during a tournament, that takes some balls. After Bubba Watson had drilled his tee shot into the rough, one fan let Bubba know what he should do with his second shot into the green. The fan asked him if he was going to go with a little 4-iron punch shot under the tree.
Bubba responded by telling him, “That’s why you’re on that side of the ropes,” before sticking the approach shot within four feet of the pin, and then was looking for the fan after the shot.

This story is not about Bubba telling him what he told him, and showing off after nailing the approach. While I’m all for that, I’m all about this guy just giving Watson his take on his next shot, probably with his caddie standing there, too. The fan’s basically saying “Hey buddy, I got this. I’ve been punching four irons for years and this is the right shot.”
