e than 11,Bubba Watson is already thinking about his career after golf, which just might include public office. Clearance Nike Shoes From China .He wants to run for mayor.Ive had a dream, Watson said. I moved back in the city limits of Pensacola [Florida] so one day I can run for mayor.The two-time Masters champion already is building quite the local enterprise at home. Last year he became a part-owner of the Pensacola Blue Wahoos, a Double A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds. This year, he opened a candy shop in Pensacola called Bubbas Sweet Spot, serving up premium candy and ice cream.What American doesnt like chocolate? So for me, it was something fun, Watson said. That really is a kid in a candy store, like everyone talks about. We built it from scratch. That wasnt buying a shop.And he didnt stop there. His latest venture is a car dealership, Sandy and Bubbas Milton Chevrolet (he thinks the new electric car is going to be big), along with a robotics company in Pensacola that makes everything from military equipment to toys.He has invested in a few golf courses, and he is involved in an apartment complex being built in Pensacola.Its funny, I say to my friends, I say to my wife, to my manager, to my team that if you say Bubba Watson the golfer, then youre limiting who I am, who I want to be and who I think I am, Watson said at the HSBC Champions. These other businesses are fun. Golf is fun. The golf is great. But there are other things I want to do. I have other dreams. Golf made it possible. Luckily for me, havent had bank loans. Im able to pay cash for these things.Watson, who defends his title next week in the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, has 10 victories worldwide, and his PGA Tour earnings alone top $35 million. Its more than he imagined when he first reached the PGA Tour in 2006.But at 38, with two children, hes approaching a stage in is life when hes starting to think.He has lived in Orlando, Florida, and Scottsdale, Arizona, and North Carolina. He still keeps a home at The Greenbrier in West Virginia. But his future is near his birthplace of Bagdad in the Florida Panhandle, and he wanted to be sure to live in Pensacola to possibly run for mayor someday.To be back home ... my mom works in the candy shop, he said. The excitement around these businesses, the city of Pensacola realizes I love them. They brought me everything I have now. They took time to sponsor sporting events that I participated in. Thats the same thing Im doing. Im trying to help the community grow.So what would he do as mayor? Given a chance for some humor, Watson turned serious.The first thing you do is some form of education, he said. We talk inner city. Its where the most growth can happen, no matter what background you are. But it all starts with education. Wholesale Nike Shoes From China . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record. Fake Nike Shoes . The quest begins with what is supposed to be an easy one, although Germany has traditionally been a stubborn opponent to Canadian teams at international tournaments. https://www.nikeshoeschina.us/ . The team said Saturday that Lopez was hurt during its 121-120 overtime loss at Philadelphia on Friday. The Nets said they would issue another update next week after consultation with their doctors. BOSTON -- The decision didnt take long.John Farrell will return to manage the Red Sox next season. President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski casually gave the news to Farrell in the less than 10 minutes between their respective season-ending news conferences Tuesday at Fenway Park.I just thought that, for me, John has done a fine job this year, Dombrowski said less than 24 hours after the Red Sox were swept out of the AL Division Series by the Cleveland Indians. Ive been happy with working with him myself. I think he has the respect of the clubhouse. We played hard. I thought we had a good season. We won the division title. We communicate well with one another. And so, for me, theres some decisions you just need to address as quickly as you possibly can because you know how important they are. I just thought it was the right time to do it, so thats why I did it.Farrell has one year left on his contract plus a team option for 2018. Although Dombrowski pledged his support for the manager, he also declined to address whether the Red Sox will pick up the option, saying that ownership would be involved in something of that magnitude.But committing to Farrell for 2017 without exercising his option would be tricky business. For one thing, it would raise questions about his job security, placing him firmly on the proverbial hot seat from the first time the team endures a losing streak.I need to sit down with ownership and discuss that, Dombrowski said. For me, it was just a matter of, I think its important for everyone to know hes our leader going forward. Hes very well respected, and it gives him a clearer mind that he needs to go along with his staff to move forward.Farrell was scrutinized more heavily than usual throughout the season by critics who were restless after back-to-back last-place finishes in the AL East. Not even a 93-win season and a division title could quiet the anti-Farrell crowd, which piped upp again Monday night after a questionable pinch-hitting decision in the seventh inning of a 4-3 loss in Game 3.

Instead, he values a managers ability to understand how to reach each player on the roster in order to optimize their performances, a skill he believes Farrell possesses.I do not feel that in-game strategy is the biggest thing as a manager, Dombrowski said. I think its important, but theres other things that I think are probably more important. As Ive often told managers, to me, the most important thing for a manager is that their club plays up to their capabilities day in and day out, which means that theyre communicating with their players and theyre getting everything that they can and that their club is playing hard.During spring training, Dombrowski noted that he hadnt gotten an opportunity to evaluate Farrell as a manager, mainly because Farrell missed the final two months of the 2015 season while being treated for non-Hodgkin Burkitt lymphoma -- which many critics believed saved Farrell from getting fired.But in his typical fashion, Dombrowski made nearly every road trip with the Red Sox and had ample time to form a judgment on Farrells managerial ability.My relationship with John all year has been tremendous, Dombrowski said. I never had an argument with John. Ive disagreed on points with him, but Ive disagreed on points with anybody at one time or another.Dombrowski said Farrells entire coaching staff will be asked to return. But after being asked to stay on as a bench coach for this season, Torey Lovullo is free to pursue managerial opportunities, according to Dombrowski. Lovullo has been a candidate for several managerial vacancies in the past. ' ' '
