Watson not ready fof fame
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Bubba Watson had reason to feel like a rock star.
His playoff win at the Masters on the second extra hole stretched into early evening, and when he finally slipped on the green jacket during the trophy presentation, the flashes from so many cameras danced across his face like strobe lights.
"I'm not ready for fame," Watson said. "I don't really want to be famous or anything like that. I just want to be me and play golf."
He hits the ball a mile, rarely in a straight line to where he's trying to get. His driver is pink from the shaft to the head. When he's not on the course, he is posting videos of his crazy stunts on Twitter. His dream purchase was the "General Lee 01," the original car in the TV series "The Dukes of Hazard."
OSU hires women’s assistant
STILLWATER (AP) — Oklahoma State officials have hired the former women's basketball coach at Missouri-Kansas City, Candace Whitaker, as associate head coach.
Whitaker had a 77-93 record at Missouri-Kansas City, and guided the Kangaroos to a 22-12 record, the Summit League Tournament title game and the program's first-ever appearance in the Women's National Invitation Tournament.
Whitaker began her coaching career at Valparaiso, where she spent two seasons before joining the staff at Missouri-Kansas City as an assistant coach in 2004. Whitaker took over the program in December of 2006, becoming one of the youngest head coaches in the nation at 26.
Before Whitaker played at Texas Tech, she played two seasons for Oklahoma State coach Jim Littell at Seward County Community College in Kansas.
