Bubba Watson Plays Football with Patriots, Saints Ahead of FedEx Cup

August 21, 2015

It turns out Bubba Watson is pretty good at football, too.

Bubba Watson had a chance to show off his newly acquired football-throwing skills while visiting the joint practice sessions of both the New England Patriots and the New Orleans Saints at the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia.

He also managed to snap a few pictures with Super Bowl champion quarterbacks Tom Brady and Drew Brees.

Watson will kick off his FedEx Cup playoff run at The Barclays next week. Currently third in the standings, Watson found time to squeeze in another win at the Saints’ daily passing competition; the fourth-ranked player finished ahead of rookie QB Garrett Grayson, the Saints’ most recent acquisition.

“We don’t hand out participation trophies,” said Saints head coach Sean Payton. “But let the record show that Bubba Watson finished ahead of our third-round draft pick.”
