Talk about the perfect way to deter thieves from stealing your clubs. Just plaster your likeness on them.
Bubba Watson already had the flashiest driver on the PGA TOUR -- a Ping G25 with a hot pink Grafalloy Tour Prototype Bi-Matrix shaft and paint fill. With the addition of a new Ping G25 4-wood to the bag, the Masters champion now has the most recognizable fairway wood in golf.
Looking to add his a personal touch to the club, Watson added a candy cane-striped Fujikura Tour Spec 8.2 shaft.
As if the shaft wasn't unique enough, Watson also added a caricature of himself -- the image is actually the same one that graces his Twitter profile -- to secure his title as the king of custom woods.
Watson started using the personalized Ping G25 4-wood at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
