Bubba Watson has been generous in supporting various charitable causes, and he's made multiple six-figure donations this summer. He's added another this week.

Caddie Ted Scott shared on Twitter on Tuesday that Watson has donated $100,000 in support of flood relief efforts in Louisiana, including in Baton Rouge, which was hard hit by an astounding amount of rain that led to widespread damage and 11 fatalities.

Watson donated the money through Our Savior's Church, Scott's church which is based in Louisiana. For his part, Scott will donate 10 percent of his earnings through the FedEx Cup playoffs.

The two-time Masters winner's donation follows a donation of $250,000 in support of the victims of similar, widespread flooding in southeastern West Virginia, including near The Greenbrier resort, where Watson has a home.

During the week of the Travelers Championship, Watson pledged $100,000 in support of ALS research on the night of a gala benefiting the Bruce Edwards Foundation and former Travelers CEO Jay Fishman, who passed weeks after the tournament following a multi-year battle against the disease.
