Bubba Watson has become the latest to join the roster of professional golfers for The Greenbrier.

Watson will have The Greenbrier logo on his golf bag and joins Webb Simpson, Kenny Perry and pro emeritus Tom Watson in representing the fabled West Virginia resort.

The 2012 Masters champion played The Greenbrier Classic this year and loved the Old White TPC layout so much that he bought a home.

"I was blown away when I played The Old White TPC earlier this year," Watson said. "My family and I had a great time experiencing all of the different amenities the property offers and decided this was the perfect place for us."

The Greenbrier introduced a set of "Bubba" tees on Tuesday that guests can play on the Old White. Those who break 90 will have their names entered in a raffle, and two winners will have a chance to play with Watson.
