I had heard about this a couple weeks ago, but didn't know if it was true. I wonder if Bubba still owns part of TM then.

This deal was finalized back in September; at least that's when Oakley told me they got it done. They said they were loosing Rory but that they picked up Bubba. One thing I'm not certain of; who is Travis Mathews going to get to replace Bubba? Any words on that floating around?

Hmmm... Not very fond of Oakley clothing vs Travis Mathew. But Oakley is my favorite sunglasses brand. I see Bubba is already off TM's Team list.


It's all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$!!!

The amount of $$$ that Travis Mathews gained from Bubba was pretty immense. I like TM's twitter post responding to the departing of ways. Very gracious and humble way to go about things and it's a classy move. Sounds like Travis Mathews will be releasing their new crew for 2013 in the first week or two of January which includes "New Young Guns" and some Tour vets.


I like to see things shake up every now and again; breathes new life into perspective... This is the largest change up that I've seen in the Golf world thus far since becoming obsessed. Should be real interesting next year :)

Bubba was a partner on Travis Matthews. Was part of his sponsor. Help build the brand and make it popular, and get more money. He probably still has a stake but sponsorship is gone. Oh well. Don't think oakley is a good fit for bubbas personality. Oh well.
