Apparently only Justin Bieber called Bubba Watson the night that he won the Masters golf tournament.

Ok, well Selena Gomez was on the line, too. But on the night that Bubba Watson got to don the bright-green jacket after winning the Masters in Augusta, Georgia, Biebs was the only dude cool enough to call him up and wish him congratulations.

Justin Bieber is the only person I talked to on the phone that night after I won, Watson told E! Online. He called me...and he and Selena [Gomez] were congratulating me, and it was a big honor that they would both call me and talk to me.

Asked whether or not Bieber can golf, he didn't take the bait

Man, he can sing and dance, Watson said, avoiding the dangerous question. Wouldn't want a thousand Beliebers yelling jacka** Happy Gilmore-style at every tee for the rest of his promising career.

Bubba Watson is golf's newest star. He became a household name on April 8, when he received the coveted green jacket at the 2012 Masters Tournament, the first major championship he has won in his career, and only his fourth PGA Tour win. He was only the third left-hander to win the Masters.

Bubba Watson took home a cool $1.44 million purse after beating Louis Oosthuizen on the second hole of a sudden death playoff.

With his career now established, Masters winner Bubba Watson will be an interesting to follow in the coming years. And apparently Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are big fans, can't be mad about that.
