Bubba Wallace Clowns Bubba Watson on Twitter Over Umbrella in Golf Bag

by Kayla Zadel

One Bubba is taking a shot at the other Bubba. So many Bubba W’s, but this is what’s happening. Bubba Wallace is trolling Bubba Watson in this recent post.

Watson originally shares a photo of his new golf gear. “Got some new #ironcovers in the #PING bag… what do y’all think? Yes… No… Maybe?” he writes.

Tucked in his golf bag is an umbrella. Well, Wallace sees this as an opportunity to poke fun at the golfer. He reshares Watson’s tweet and writes, “Umbrella? Scared to get a little wet bro?” Wallace didn’t make a joke about Watson’s iron covers, which are slightly unnecessary and looked down on by many golfers.

Both Bubba’s make their own sorts of drives in their respective sports. But they find common ground on social media from time to time.

Bubba Wallace Reveals New Livery

Wallace took to social media to also show off his new paint-scheme on his stock car.

“New Year. New Ride Let’s Go!,” is what Wallace writes.

The video shows what his new race car will look like. It definitely shows off one of Bubba Wallace’s new sponsors. Door Dash is jumping on the Wallace wagon for the 2021 season. Columbia Sportswear, Dr. Pepper, McDonald’s, and Root Insurance round out the list of sponsors that will don the Toyota Camry.

It also flashes the words “new team” across the screen. This is a nod to Wallace’s new race team that he joined at the end of last year’s NASCAR season. Wallace joined Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin’s new 23XI, where he’ll drive the No. 23 car. The No. 23 is a nod to Jordan’s time with the Chicago Bulls.

Countdown is On to NASCAR 2021 Season

The 2021 Cup Series kicks off with the Busch Clash at DAYTONA on Feb. 9. This year, the schedule takes the drivers and race teams to three new tracks. What’s more, NASCAR is expanding to six road courses and placing a dirt-track race on the calendar for the first time in more than 50 years.

Additionally one of the weirdest race titles in sports history might just happen this year. The Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner. 300 on Saturday, Feb. 13 includes a new initiative that the Beef Checkoff Program hopes to promote using NASCAR as its platform.
