Two-Time Masters Champ Bubba Watson Sells $4.2M Home Once Owned by Tiger Woods

Bubba Watson, winner of the 2012 and 2014 Masters tournament, has given up his lakefront home in Windermere, Florida. One of the PGA’s few lefties scored a quick $4.2 million for the half-acre property in a private golf club community, and it’s a prime home for the golf-minded: just the like the Masters, it was owned by Tiger Woods prior to Watson’s time with it.

Among the amenities in the 8,000-square-foot home are a home theater with two-level seating, a game room chock full of arcade games (including, naturally, Golden Tee) and a sleek Killerspin ping pong table as its centerpiece, a living room with soaring ceilings, a home office, a formal dining room and a family room.

There are also seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a private dock, a swimming pool with an adjacent spa and a two-story covered back patio. The eat-in kitchen includes hardwood floors and matching plank ceilings, as well as white shaker cabinets and a lovely geometric backsplash, while its attached breakfast nook sits just next to the home’s staircase and features a unique globe-shaped chandelier.

In the master suite, a vault-like walk-in closet has plenty of room for golf cleats, while the bedroom itself has exposed beam ceilings, a sitting area and outdoor access through glass doors.

Watson, who purchased the home in 2013, listed it last year for $5.6 million. The asking price was dropped more recently to $4.975 million. He has earned more than $3.2 million this year on the PGA Tour.
