(Doug Ferguson/AP) — Bubba Watson is already thinking about his career after golf, which just might include public office.

He wants to run for mayor.

“I’ve 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 “Bubba’s Sweet Spot,” serving up premium candy and ice cream.
