Bubba Watson officially a dad
Bubba Watson has completed the final paperwork in the adoption process for his infant son, Caleb.
"Monday was a great day for us with our son," Watson said at a news conference prior to the PGA Championship. "The adoption is final, so that's the most important thing. We got that done. And now we're on to trying to win this tournament, trying to play good golf, trying to get better in the game of golf."
Caleb has been with the Watsons since March 26, but the Masters champion has been limited to 20 rounds since while working through the adoption.
"We had a lot of court things, a lot of paperwork to fill out," Watson said. "He's from Florida, we were living in Arizona, so both state laws have to be accounted for.
"You know, I missed some tournaments this year because I've had court things I had to do, some law stuff I had to do," Watson said. "So I missed some tournaments that I didn't want to miss, that I normally don't miss. I just had to take care of that, some stuff like that was most important and be there for my wife when she said she wishes I was home.
"So I chose to do all those things, and then golf obviously is way down the list of priorities," Watson said. "That came first. Just a lot of paperwork. A lot of people go through it, but trying to travel across the U.S., trying to travel outside the country and playing golf made it a little bit more difficult, but somehow it all worked out, and now we're parents, I guess."
