Two-Time Masters Tournament Champion Brings Custom Golf Ball, Closest-to-the-Pin Style Competition and Personalized Emoticons to Highly Successful Mobile Game
Official Bubba Ball, Bubba’s One Shot Challenge and Animated Emotes Available Now in Golf Clash
Warner Bros. Games and Playdemic today announced a partnership with professional golfer and two-time winner of The Masters Tournament, Bubba Watson, to bring a new in-game golf ball and one shot challenge to the award-winning, hit Golf Clash mobile game. Available beginning today through 15 November, the official Bubba Ball is full of powerful stats to compliment Watson’s strength off the tee, perfect for long fairways when players must focus on distance. The custom Bubba Ball features a sleek design with Watson’s autograph and monogram prominently displayed, alongside signature pink colouring intermixed throughout.
The collaboration with Watson also extends to Bubba’s One Shot Challenge, a bespoke closest-to-the-pin style in-game event based on the popular Golden Shot feature in Golf Clash. Available beginning today through 18 November, this limited time challenge showcases a pink coloured driver in honour of Watson and gives participants a chance to win the Bubba Ball by hitting a hole-in-one. Additionally, select animated emotes personalised with Watson’s likeness are now available in Golf Clash, allowing players to add a hint of expressive flavour to their best moments on the virtual course.
