WINDERMERE, Fla. – For his 10-year wedding anniversary, Bubba Watson chose to honor his wife. With a tattoo.

Watson explained that although he owns two wedding bands, he doesn’t like the feeling of wearing one while playing golf, so he got a tattoo of his wife’s name, Angie, on his left ring finger.

“I was like, ‘I’m going to get a tattoo,’” he said. “She’s like, ‘No you’re not.’ So I did. It was a $60 anniversary present.”

Angie Watson also got a tattoo, with the initials BW inside the Christian fish symbol. They got them on Aug. 11 in Pensacola, Fla., in advance of their Sept. 1 anniversary.

“They had no idea who I was,” the two-time Masters champion said of the tattoo artists. “Different culture.”

Just don’t expect him to add more anytime soon.

“I think tattoos are cool when I see them on other people, but I don’t personally like tattoos,” Watson said. “But this is about my wife and showing her I care about her.”
