Golf Channel analysts broadcast quotes – 'Live From the Masters' Sunday, April 8

Golf Channel analyst Frank Nobilo

Describing the apparent road to victory for ultimate runner-up Louis Oosthuizen. (Note: Masters champion Bubba Watson recently purchased the original 1969 Dodge Charger called The General Lee from the ‘80s TV hit show, Dukes of Hazzard.)

“It looked like he was on a march to become one of the very few players to win two majors under the age of 30 …. but then The General Lee came flying at him.”

Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee

On Bubba Watson’s approach shot on the second playoff hole at No. 10:

“It’s one of the greatest shots you’ll ever see.  It was complete imagination.”

On Watson’s golf game:

“Every good legal movie gets you on the edge of your seat waiting for a rebuttal.  Bubba is a walking rebuttal to the over-coached world of professional golf today.  I’m not saying it displaces it, it just offers an alternative. …This is going to send his X-factor into the stratosphere.”
