    Golfer Bubba Watson will paint over Confederate flag on his General Lee

    Golfer Bubba Watson is taking a stand against the Confederate flag: He announced he is painting an American flag on the roof of his General Lee.

    Watson purchased the original General Lee 1 - the classic Dodge Charger that features a huge Confederate flag on the roof was one of the stars of the TV series "The Dukes of Hazzard" - for $110,000 at an auction in 2012. A big fan of the old show, Watson even had the car signed by 'Bo Duke' (the actor Jon Schneider) back in January.



    But the two-time Masters champion tweeted that in light of the recent controversy over the racist symbol, he is taking action.

    "All men ARE created equal, I believe that so I will be painting the American flag over the roof of the General Lee #USA" the two-time Masters champion tweeted Thursday.

    The Confederate flag has become a hot-button topic after it remained flying over South Carolina's state capital following a shooting massacre at a black church in the state.

    TVLand, the cable channel that reruns old shows, recently announced that it was pulling 'The Dukes of Hazzard' from its rotation.

    Watson, also known for his hovercraft golf cart, told Golf Digest all about his General Lee purchase back in 2013:

    "You know I bought the General Lee last year. I had to have it. I'm a huge 'Dukes of Hazzard' fan. I have the complete DVD collection. After I got the car, I didn't have it a month before I put it into the shop. It was messed up when I got it. There were hundreds of General Lees, but mine was the original. It had done a lot of jumping. There was a big concrete block in the back seat to stabilize it when it was airborne, none of the gauges on the dash worked, and it didn't have seat belts. I handed it over to some car junkies, and a year and $10,000 later—that's a cheap price, by the way—I got it back. Everything in it is perfect. Would I drive it into Augusta? Sure, it's just a car. But will I? No. That's a long way to transport a car just to drive it to a golf course."

    NASCAR is dumping the Confederate flag, a sport with a huge following in the south with half of them already flying the flag. Why would any of you guys be surprised that a PGA (mostly white, very corporate) sponsored player wouldn't do the same thing? Don't know if Bubba made a moral decision or a financial decision to do away with the flag, but his doing it certainly adds more pressure to retire the flag.

    why would you take the original car, and make it not original.
    may as well save millions and buy one of the other ones used
