It was another record year for all of the Team Oakley athletes at the Winter Olympics. 2014 saw Oakley athletes bring home an astounding 84 total medals from the Sochi Olympic Games in Russia and the performance sports athletes were no slouches. From gold medals in alpine skiing, speedskating, hockey, biathlon and more, the Oakley performance sports athletes proved why they are the world’s best, competing on the world’s biggest stage.
Oakley’s star golfer, Bubba Watson is known for many things; his excellence on the links, his charming southern antics and his love for unique motor vehicles. From his famous hovercraft to The General Lee, Watson has always had an affinity for interesting rides. With that in mind, Oakley’s golf and motorsports teams got together to build the ultimate custom Ford Raptor for the long driving southpaw. And what better setting to make a splash with the delivery than the Waste Management Phoenix Open – the PGA tournament that’s nothing short of a raging good time.
It’s been a long time coming for Bubba Watson. Sunday he broke a nearly two year winless streak by winning the 2014 Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club in the Los Angeles area. Watson shot 64-64 on the final two days of the tournament to secure his first victory in 41 tries since his last win. With his wife and son there to celebrate, Watson dazzled the crowd with flawless golf to close a four shot gap going into the final day and ultimately ending up on top.
