The 2012 PGA Tour that began in January in Kapalua, Hawaii is more than half over, and some of the biggest news has been Phil Mickelson's huge comeback win at Pebble Beach in February and Bubba Watson's miracle shot and victory at the Masters Tournament on Easter Sunday.
Unlike Bubba and Phil, you will probably never win a Masters Championship, but you can buy their homes. Watson’s North Carolina lake home is available at $1,499,000 and Mickelson has a huge home in Rancho Santa Fe, California for sale at $7,095,000. Also, 2010 PGA Tour Player of the Year Jim Furyk has a fabulous home in Hawaii he is selling.
