Bubba Watson is a pretty good dude.
Watson helped ensure that one of his fans didn't see their birthday ruined on Friday after that fan was a victim of the often fickle autograph game.
The 2012 Masters champion, who is one of the best Twitter users among professional athletes, received a tweet from a fan who was beyond excited for a birthday present from his father. The fan tweeted at Watson to tell him about the gift which was a flag from Augusta National signed by the golfer. According to the fan, it was one of just 50 produced.

There was only one problem. The autograph was a fake.
Watson tweeted back at the fan to let him know that he had been duped, and that a minor issue proved to Watson that the signature wasn't actually his.
"FAKE- i Dont Sign The Middle," Watson tweeted back at the fan.
Kind of a bummer, right?
However, Watson wound up saving the day. The golfer made up for the unfortunate incident by pledging to send his fan a special birthday gift.
