Bubba Watson Will Paint Over The Flag On His General Lee
PGA Pro, and former Masters Champion, Bubba Watson has announced that he will be painting over the Confederate Flag on top of his personal General Lee:
Watson purchased his 1969 Dodge Charger in 2012 at a Barrett-Jackson auction. He paid $110,000 for it, and referred to it as his "dream car" at the time. Even then, the flag was an issue, sparking concerns from his wife Angie, but he was quoted saying:
"it’s not about the confederate flag, it’s about the show and what it stands for”
The purchase may have actually been a steal at $110,000...considering it's the actual General Lee from the Duke of Hazzard opening scene.
