Bubba Watson for the second time in his career has been named PGA TOUR Player of the Month. The PGA TOUR and Avis Car Rental made the announcement March 13.
As the official rental car company of the PGA TOUR, Avis will make a $50,000 contribution to the Bubba Watson Foundation, which was established in January 2014.
According to the foundation’s website, it was formed by Watson and his wife Angie to enhance their ability to help those in need. The foundation’s mission is to enhance the every-day lives of people in need with a particular emphasis on helping and inspiring children, young adults, and those associated with the U.S. Military.
Player of the Month is determined by a fan poll on PGATOUR.COM. A panel of national media nominated Watson, Kevin Stadler, Jimmy Walker and Jason Day for their performances in February.
Watson had three top-10 finishes last month including a victory at the Northern Trust Open.
