What’s the best way to celebrate winning one of professional golf’s most prestigious events?

For Masters champion Bubba Watson, who won his second title at Augusta National Golf Club in three years on Sunday, the best way to top off his win was with a family trip to Waffle House.

Watson, a former Georgia Bulldog, tweeted a picture of the celebratory chow-down Sunday night. He wrote: “Champ dinner @WaffleHouse! #hashbrowns #covered” His wife, Angie, is in the photo, and his pastor also reportedly joined the party. 

The two-time Masters winner edged Jordan Spieth and Jonas Blixt by 3 shots on Sunday. ESPN says that Watson was on a dry streak after winning the 2012 Masters title; he didn’t win another championship that season or any titles in 2013.

After winning the 2012 Masters, Watson told The Golf Channel he loved the restaurant and wanted “a grilled cheese from Waffle House and hash browns” for his traditional champions dinner. He ended up with a caesar salad, grilled chicken breast with sides of mashed potatoes, corn and green beans, reports USA Today.

This time Watson went for the cheese-covered hash browns.

Congrats to you Bubba! (Here's a little trivia for folks not too familiar with him: Bubba's never had a golf lesson in his life.)

Didn't the Georgia teacher accused or having a 3 way with her students also "celebrate" at a waffle house?

There is something in those cheese grits...

Moochell does not like this and has made the lefty liberals pieping mad.
