Bubba Watson is in rare company, one of just 17 golfers in history to win multiple Masters (2012, 2014). His career goal? To join a similarly exclusive club: Team USA Ryder Cup captains.

This week on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, Watson said he one day hopes to join the likes of Ben Crenshaw, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and, most recently, Tom Watson, and lead the U.S. against Europe in the biennial golf competition.

“I’ve always had a goal in my career to be captain of the Ryder Cup,” Watson told Matt Adams. “Because it’s an honor, it’s a privilege. That’s the Hall of Fame. That means your career’s been good enough, they respect you enough, you’re an ambassador for the game of golf in the right way. You helped grow the game in the right way, because of your talent, because of who you are off the course, what you do for the game.”

In Watson’s opinion, being recognized on such a grand stage is the true reward of being in that position.

“Who cares, win or lose? It’s about growing this great game.”
