WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — Bubba Watson liked his first trip to the Greenbrier Classic so much, he's joining The Greenbrier resort's professional golf staff.
The 2012 Masters champion also will represent The Greenbrier in PGA Tour events and is building a house at the White Sulphur Springs resort.
Watson and Greenbrier owner Jim Justice held a news conference Tuesday to discuss the plan.
Watson will join Greenbrier pro emeritus Tom Watson, Webb Simpson and Kenny Perry in displaying The Greenbrier logo on their golf bags during tournaments.
Watson raved about the resort's amenities on social media before July's Greenbrier Classic.
He might use his newfound opportunity to bone up on the Old White TPC Course's layout. He tied for 30th at 5 under in his inaugural appearance in the tournament in July.
