Bubba Watson: 2012 Masters Champion and Big “Dukes of Hazzard” Fan

Any golf fan knows that Florida’s Bubba Watson is now the proud owner of a nice new green jacket after winning the 2012 Masters Championship. What they might not know is that he is also the proud owner of a bright orange 1969 Dodge Charger called The General Lee, known famously as the iconic chariot of “The Dukes of Hazzard.”

One of 321 models used in the 1980’s TV program, the charger was bought by Watson in January for $110,000. The Charger boasts a 440 cubic inch Magnum V-8 engine which cranks out 364 horsepower – a few more than the actual horse ridden by General Lee in the Civil War.

Aside from the bright color and powerful engine, Bubba’s new ride also features a Confederate battle flag painted on the roof which has been a source of some controversy. NASCAR actually revoked an invitation for Watson to cruise his new ride in a pre-race parade after hearing of the flag painted on the roof.  

Despite somewhat questionable politics of representing Confederate ideas, The General is still a sweet ride from a classic show for car-lovers. His ride only sports the flag because the other three hundred some odd models featured in the show did too, making it likely that Watson is simply in the ranks of “Dukes of Hazzard” fans and classic cars, not one to hold a grudge over “The War of Northern Aggression.”
