When it comes to charitable causes nobody can question Bubba Watson's goodwill.  He just donated a $410,000 car to Birdies For The Brave.  The car was auctioned last night by BarretJackson. 

Now I'm a big fan of the likes of Top Gear and Counting Cars but this blows them right out of the water.

Bubba donated a custom built replica of a 1939 Cadillac LaSalle C-Hawk Custom Roadster originally designed by Harley Earl. Fitted with a 556-horsepower Cadillac LSA engine, DANA 44 rear end, hidden headlights and Borla exhaust, the skin of the car was handcrafted from steel.

The C-Hawk also features billet wheels, power everything, a C4 Corvette suspension and Dakota digital instrumentation.
The Birdies for the Brave initiative was started in 2006, the brainchild of Phil and Amy Mickelson. It's aim was to support combat-injured troops, but since being adopted by the PGA Tour, has now grown into a much larger military outreach program .  
For his part Bubba did get a little something back; he got Bo Duke aka actor John Schneider, from the "The Dukes of Hazzard" to autograph the General Lee. Don't expect that car to be entering auction anytime soon. Or ever!
