Video: Ian Poulter joins the Bubba Watson fun on the first tee

By Shane Bacon | Blogger

On Friday afternoon, Bubba Watson was ready to go in his fourball match alongside Webb Simpson, and he was so fired up to play, he decided to get the crowd to cheer while he hit his golf shot.

It was a "Happy Gilmore" moment at the Ryder Cup, and was so fun, European Ian Poulter decided to get in on the action on Saturday. Playing alongside Justin Rose and and against Watson and Simpson, Poulter asked the crowd to cheer when he hit his tee shot on the first hole, and after pounding it down the fairway, Bubba followed suit.

The Ryder Cup is competitive and pressure-packed and all that stuff, but it's also supposed to be fun, and it's nice to see a couple of guys really embracing that, even if it's not in your country.

Next goal? Getting the Augusta patrons to cheer when you're hitting golf shots during the Masters. Good luck with that.
