Polished and stylish.

Not exactly how I would have described Bubba Watson in the past. But after seeing his updated, younger look this weekend at the Bob Hope Classic, I can’t help but think Bubba Watson is looking pretty sharp these days.

Fashionably speaking, he is a whole new man. He finally lost the oversized, pleated pant and replaced them with a flat-front, trimmer pair. He’s stepped away from the baggy, oversized shirt that tended to make him look sloppy and bigger (which he’s not), and traded it in for a better fit, crisp-looking polo. Bubba now looks sophisticated, professional and tailored. It’s a great look for him.

What made all the difference? Travis Mathew, a company that is mentioned a lot in this blog.

Bubba Watson is the second of three new PGA Tour ambassadors for Travis Mathew. Geoff Ogilvy began sporting the TM brand this year after deal with Puma Golf expired at the end of last year.

Travis Mathew CEO Travis Johnson said in an e-mail that the company’s third player will make his debut at Torrey Pines this week.

I’ll be keeping an eye on this company and these stylish players.
