We've seen it plenty of times: Bubba Watson admonishing caddie Ted Scott for his club choices or otherwise embarrassing the looper with whiny comments on the course. Watson's behavior is exactly why the boys of No Laying Up created the hashtag #PrayForTedScott.
Well, the self-aware duo made fun of their on-course drama with a bit of play turnabout. Watson is playing in this week's Shenzhen International in China, and he's been playing golf pretty much around the clock, including at night on Thursday at Genzon Golf Club.

Ted Scott is the player, and he's got a long carry on a par 5. He consults Watson, the caddie here, for the club to hit. Watson recommends 1-iron, the club only God and Ben Hogan could hit. Predictably, Scott chunks his shot and it goes in the hazard.
Like Watson would do to him, Scott lays into Watson for the poor club choice.
"That club? Really? That club?" Scott asks playfully.
Watson responds, "Don't be me. You're better than that," as Scott walks away mock disgusted off-camera.
