Bubba Watson shot 81 at Pelican Hill Golf Club in October. Not very good for a Masters champ. Except that he did it with one 20-degree hybrid club and three golf balls.

Tim Mitchell of GolfWRX was on hand for the occasion and said Watson told him he somtimes gets bored with regular golf.

"Are you wondering if Bubba's other 13 clubs were hijacked on the way to the course? I know I did. But Bubba told one of our staff members that he sometimes gets bored using 14 clubs, and occasionally wants to challenge his shot making skills by playing a round with only one club."

I appreciate that Bubba has some fun with the game, though I think he sort of thinks he's better at it than he actually is. He finished behind John Merrick, Chris Kirk, Ken Duke, and Michael Thompson in the final regular season FedEx Cup standings.

That's not good for somebody who's supposed to be a superstar.

Hey, maybe this shot-making session will help his real game, though.

Plus, I'm not sure I could shoot 81 on three holes with one club. Heck, I can't shoot 81 with every club in the world on 18 holes.
