WATCH: Bubba Watson plays wiffleball with Travelers Championship kid fans after round


Bubba Watson is always described as a kid at heart, sort of a Peter Pan-type. He likes to have fun with his kids. He owns a candy store for crying out loud. And golf can sometimes be a little boring, so, after his Thursday round at the Travelers Championship, Watson spiced it up a little bit.

Watson decided to play in a little game of pick-up wiffleball with some kids attending the tournament at TPC River Highlands.

PGA Tour Radio's Doug Bell whipped out his phone to pick up the footage.

In the one at-bat Watson grounded out on a close play at first. The umpire's call was a little dubious since the tie goes to the runner, but Watson took it all in stride as the adults apparently tried to teach the kids a lesson. But they don't have the speed that the kids do, and they typically don't have the sneakiness of kids.

We don't know who won the game, but we're assuming the kid pitcher took a perfect game into the fourth when an adult bunted their way on -- you know, the coward's way out.
