It was an emotional victory for Bubba Watson at the 2016 Ryder Cup.

Watson, has had his fair share of victories, including winning two Masters, yet he seemed more emotional with the US Victory at the Ryder Cup as the Vice Captain of the team. 

The bubbling emotion Watson explained was for many reasons, one of them being in 2010 while he played at the Ryder cup, it was the last time his dad saw him play before he passed away. 

Now, six years later, Watson is in a completely different role, but one that is a dream come true. The 37 year-old explained,

"Finally, I found my place on the team is to help,"
"A couple of guys called me and said, 'Bubba, I need you by my side, shoulder to shoulder.' And the last couple of days, that's what I did. It was a dream come true for me. This is the greatest thing I have ever done in golf. I am so happy for this team. This team was amazing. They took me with open arms and let me be a part of it."

Watson played an integral role on the team, even though he didn't pick up a club the entire time. Fellow golfer, Brandt Snedeker explained,

"He [Watson] is the reason I got around today,"
"He's the reason why I got my point today. He was in my ear all day, walking with me every step of the way, letting me know he was supporting me 100 percent. That means a ton in this kind of stuff.
"A guy like him, putting his ego to the side and saying, 'I want to be a part of this.' You need somebody in your corner all the time."

 

Sometimes we find that the greatest part of dreaming big is not only seeing our dream come true, but helping others realize their dreams along the way too.

“As a God fearing man, I love to help and I love to give. Finally I found my place on the team is to help. A couple guys called me and said, Bubba, I need you by my side, shoulder to shoulder. And the last couple of days that’s what I did. It was a dream come true for me. This is the greatest thing that I have ever done in golf. I am so happy for this team. This team was amazing. They took me with open arms and let me be a part of it. For U.S.A., for all that, this is absolutely amazing. The greatest thing I have ever done in my career and been a part of."
