Pro Golfer Buys Historic General Lee at Auction

Word is getting around that Gerry “Bubba” Watson was the winning bidder for “LEE 1”, the first screen-jumped General Lee. The storied General was auctioned off Saturday, January 21 at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, AZ. Watson won the bidding at $110,000, with his total cost ending up at $121,000 after buyer’s commission.

Watson is a powerful left-handed pro golfer who can hit a ball over 350 yards, at a speed of 194 miles per hour. Yes, Watson can drive! On the golf course. We’re looking forward to seeing how he does on the street with his General Lee!

Is Watson a Dukes of Hazzard fan? That’s a big 10-4! Here’s what he had to say in his tweet on Saturday: “Just got my dream car!” 

Congratulations, Bubba Watson! The General is going to a good home.

“LEE 1” Draws Media Buzz at Auction

Watch the video broadcast below and then decide for yourself.  LEE 1 is expected to sell for a crazy amount of money, despite the debates that surround it.
