Bubba Watson is keeping busy this week. On Friday, he played golf with the actor Mark Wahlberg, posting a photo of the two of them together on the course with the hashtag “NeedWahlburgersGiftCard” referring to the restaurant Wahlberg co-owns with his brothers. The restaurant has locations in Florida, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, and Nevada.

And, earlier this afternoon, Ping posted a photo of Bubba testing out the custom-milled Anser, below:
