Watson heard about the school that James opened in his hometown earlier this week, and the two-time Masters champion wanted to donate to the cause. On Wednesday night, he bid on a pair of shoes. (The winning bidder gets one shoe and the other stays on display at the school.) His $30,000 bid won him the shoes that James wore in Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals in Cleveland, a game that Watson attended. Watson, who in February appeared in the Celebrity Game during the NBA’s All-Star weekend in Los Angeles, said he planned to display the shoe at a new driving range and teaching center he opened in Pensacola, Fla. Then it might find its way to his trophy room. It will go well with the pair of shoes Kevin Durant gave him two years ago after a game against the L.A. Clippers. “It’s cool. He’s doing a lot for his hometown,” Watson said of James. “You know, I’ve won three times this year, but this was way better in my book. I feel like I’m known as a golfer and not a real person sometimes, and I just want to do other things that are far more important than playing golf.” – TO
