Bubba Watson has always been about that celebrity life.
Two years ago in Los Angeles he was arguably more excited to play in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game than in the Genesis Open. He went on to get viciously rejected by Tracy McGrady in limited court action, and a couple days later he lifted the trophy for a third time at Riviera Country Club. And earlier this week Watson was giving LeBron James hugs and sitting court side next to Chris Tucker at a Lakers game.
So it was no surprise to see Watson stay in the City of Angels a bit longer after missing the Genesis cut on Friday. Instead of hopping on a flight home, Watson called up some buddies and booked a tee time for Saturday.
He made sure he was riding with Justin, though. You know, Justin Bieber.
Watson and Bieber have been friends for years, with the 41-year-old Watson acting as a mentor to the 25-year-old pop star.
Also in the six-some were Watson's caddie Ted Scott, Churchome pastor Judah Smith, and producers Ryan Good and Mark Scoon.
It's unknown what everyone shot, but Watson did confirm an enjoyable round in a post Sunday on Twitter.
Maybe Rory McIlroy will give Bubba a pass on "golfing" if he's included next time.
