Our friends at NBC did us sports fans no favor by booking Bubba Watson on "The Tonight Show" Monday night – opposite both Monday Night Football and two different Major League Baseball playoff games. Heck, I didn’t even know Bubba was gonna be on until after the show was over.
But thanks to the Internet, you can see Bubba’s appearance, and it is well worth the eight minutes it’ll take to watch. In the first segment, Bubba and Jay chat about topics ranging from the Ryder Cup to Twitter to Justin Bieber.
Every golfer worth his or her salt knows that Arnold Palmer grew up at Latrobe Country Club in Latrobe, Pa. The club has always been private, but now any golfer can tread the fairways where Arnie learned to play the game.

"If the feel and performance satisfy Luke, we're confident we've created an iron that is going to perform for a lot of players."

Olympic swimming champion Michael Phelps plays to a 16-handicap, but he looked like a major champion on one hole Friday.
Phelps is playing this week in the European Tour’s Dunhill Links Championship, a pro-celebrity event similar to the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on the PGA Tour, held each year on the Old Course at St. Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns.
Phil Mickelson is one of the new owners of the San Diego Padres, but his next sporting appearance will be with his hometown Chargers. And, in typical Mickelson fashion, there’ll be big money on the line.
Building on the success of its popular 588 Wedge line, Cleveland Golf is rolling out its new 588 Forged RTG wedge.
The 588 Forged RTG (Raw Tour Grind) model maintains the popular shape of Cleveland's 588 Forged predecessors, but this one features a dynamic grind on the back of the sole to reduce volume there. This dynamic grind allows golfers to open the face with a lower leading edge for better contact.

If you’re a car guy like me, you love to see spy shots of new models while they’re out being tested. Oftentimes, the car companies try to disguise specific features of their future vehicles by covering them with camouflage to keep the competition guessing – and, of course, to get the fans of their brands curious about what’s coming next.
