Bubba Watson has a strange and unique personality.  

He is seen berating his caddie one moment, and, after sinking the winning putt at a tournament.  And can be seen hugging and crying on his caddie’s shoulder the next.  

Well, come to find out, Bubba is socially inept and feels extremely uncomfortable in crowds and social situations.  That explains a lot.

Bubba Watson acknowledges the crowd after putting for birdie on the 18th green to win the Northern Trust Open on Feb. 16 in Pacific Palisades, Calif.

Bubba Watson became a household name when he came out of nowhere to win the Masters in 2012.

The 36-year-old has played some great golf since then, but he hasn’t made many friends. Watson’s caddie, Ted Scott, tried to explain some of the misconceptions about Bubba in a recent interview with Golf Digest.

According to Scott, a lot of Watson’s issues with rubbing people the wrong way stem from the golfer’s battle with social anxiety.

“When we started together in 2006, Bubba had already rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. I had friends who called me and said, ‘Man, that guy you’re going to work for is a jerk.’ And my impression the first week was, ‘I don’t know about this guy.’
