Nickelodeon Slimes Bubba Watson Ahead Of The Players Championship 2017

All Nickelodeon fans know that "sliming" someone is often part of the action. And it looks like professional golfer Bubba Watson couldn't help but join in on the fun on Monday! The left-hander is on hand for the 2017 Players Championship this week, as is Nickelodeon, so it was the perfect time for Watson to receive the ultimate Nickelodeon honor - a Nickelodeon Sliming!

Childhood dream fulfilled, Bubba joins the long list of celebrities who have been slimed, including Katy Perry, Taylor Lautner, Will Smith, Josh Hutcherson & Amanda Seyfried, Pharrell Williams & Kaley Cuoco and Daniel Radcliffe, Sandra Bullock & Hugh Jackman, Nick Jonas, 5 Seconds of Summer, Patrick Star, Justin Bieber, Pitbull, Justin Timberlake, Snoop Dogg, Dwayne Johnson, Mark Wahlberg, John Cena, Mario Bautista, Demi Lovato, Halle Berry, Harrison Ford, Orlando Bloom, Kevin Hart, Mo Farah, Ant & Dec, Andy Murray, Olly Murs, and Jordan Banjo, Perri Kiely and their Diversity co-dancers.

To celebrate THE PLAYERS Championship 2017, taking place at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, Nickelodeon has partnered with tournament officials to bring new, family-friendly tournament activities to the McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation Kid Zone. The Kid Zone is just one of many fun activities for families at the tournament!

The McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation Kid Zone has an enclosed, air-conditioned area featuring the Nickelodeon experience, an interactive destination for kids and families attending THE PLAYERS. Fans are able to show off their skills at the SpongeBob SquarePants mini-golf challenge and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Puttskee, get virtually slimed, meet SpongeBob and more.

Nickelodeon will also bring kids at home into the action with new, golf-themed content and exclusive coverage of the on-the-ground events leading up to THE PLAYERS in the “NickSports Presents Golf Rocks Weekend” Friday, May 12, through Sunday, May 14, on Nicktoons. Hosted by avid golfer and Nick star Breanna Yde (School of Rock), “NickSports Presents Golf Rocks Weekend” will present interstitials offering a behind-the-scenes look at the tournament, highlights from Nickelodeon’s Kid Zone activation, interviews with PGA TOUR players and more. On Sunday, May 14, the cast of Nickelodeon’s School of Rock (Breanna Yde, Aidan Miner, Jade Pettyjohn, Lance Lim) and PGA TOUR and LPGA players (Peter Malnati, Sydnee Michaels, Mackenzie Hughes, Demi Runas) will compete in the Mega Golf Challenge that was filmed at the Genesis Open, a series of slime-filled, golf-themed interstitials hosted by School of Rock's Tony Cavalero and Ricardo Hurtado, airing 11 a.m.–1 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nicktoons.
