With a name like "Bubba" you know golf's newest champion is going to have a few quirks.

But did you know the winner of the Masters tournament is also known for turning trick shots, for singing in a boy band, and for driving a famous hot rod?

CNN's Jeanne Moos spent some time looking at the wacky side of Bubba Watson.

Watson may have cried when he won the Masters, but he's a master of not taking the sport or himself too seriously.

In Watson's wacky world of YouTube videos, he can be seen teeing off from atop some Discount Tire tires, whacking cakes, lettuce, eggplant and pumpkins.

The shot out of the rough that helped Bubba win the Masters was a distant relative to his hot tub trick shot.

Watson's father nicknamed him after the football and actor Bubba Smith.

He may be famous for his long, powerful drives, but it's what he drives that's actually one of a kind -- It's the famous TV car known as the General Lee from the show, "The Dukes of Hazard.

Watson bought one of the original Dodge Chargers used in the series for $110,000.

He plays golf with Justin Bieber and appeared along other PGA golfers in a mock boy band video.

His game may be golf, but for Bubba, any ball will do.
