Bubba Watson apologizes for his actions at French Open

Bubba Watson's first trip to France, and first time out in a non-major on the European Tour, wasn't exactly a great first impression.

Watson complained about the fans and the tournament, and insulted a lot of the people of France with some of his remarks about their landmarks. It sure wasn't his best week, but Bubba is back in the states, and has apologized for his actions this past week at the French Open, where he missed the cut after rounds of 74-74.

The above tweets are what Bubba sent, following those up with a message that said he will play the British, Scandinavian Masters, Denmark and Schuco Open, so if those messages looked like just damage control, it seems they weren't.

Watson is the type of guy American golf needs to be a face, and a popular face, so it's good that he acted quickly and said he was sorry.

We've all played bad golf and acted out of character after it, and I'm sure we've all regretted what we've done or said (I know a few of my broken wedges would sure agree).

Bubba will be back, but it'll sure be interesting to see how the fans at Royal St. George's act when he's on the first tee in a couple of weeks.
