Bubba Watson Buys Tiger's Infamous Mansion

Carefree golfer Bubba Watson purchased Tiger Woods’s infamous mansion he once shared with his former wife Elin Nordegren. 

Woods’s former house is in Orlando’s gated Isleworth community. It is at that house where Nordegren reportedly intercepted a text message from one of Woods’s many mistresses during Thanksgiving weekend in 2009. Minutes after, Woods crashed his car into a fire hydrant. After women came out of the woodwork after the incident, Woods’s life and golf game completely fell apart and he has not won a major since.

“I looked at probably 50 houses before I looked at Tiger’s,” Bubba Watson said. “A lot of the houses there are old, and we ended up changing everything. We probably saved maybe five percent of it. We built it all around Caleb. There are like three playrooms.”

Bubba was a former Scottsdale, Ariz. resident but is moving to Florida after he and wife Angie adopted their baby boy a year ago, and I think it’s cool that he settled on Tiger’s house.

We hear of celebrities in Los Angeles buying former celebrities houses all the time, but for golfers it’s the Florida area where that appears to happen. Watson plans to move in next week, and if he keeps up his play at Doral might be
