Bubba Watson moves to Oakley

Bubba Watson moves to Oakley

With the imminent departure of Rory McIlroy to Nike looming, Oakley recently added Zach Johnson to it's stable, and have followed that up with the addition of 2012 Masters Champion Bubba Watson.

This move takes CNG by surprise, considering Watson's strong marketing and charitable ties with Travis Mathew -- and is without question, a huge win for Oakley considering Watson's popularity.

Confirmation of the move to Oakley comes via Travis Mathew's Twitter feed (below), and a photo of Watson wearing Oakley gear as he gets some reps in prior to next week's Hyundia Tournament of Champions.
