Billy Horschel

Billy Horschel caught a bad break, literally, on Thursday in the first round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic when the head of his putter broke clean from the shaft after he missed a putt from just off the eighth green.

We've all been there. You hit a solid putt that you just know is going in.

And then, well... it doesn't go in.

In a sense of "are you kidding me?" shock, you flip your putter in disbelief and then walk to the hole to tap it in.

For Billy Horschel, the putter flip became the issue during the first round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic on Thursday.

When he flipped the putter, the putter head fell off the shaft.

Seriously:

Thankfully for Horschel, that happened on the eighth hole, his 17th of the day.

At the ninth, he putted with a fairway wood and finished with a par for a 2-over 72.

Bubba Watson

Bubba Watson was at Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night in Cleveland, where Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors took a 3-0 series lead over the LeBron James led Cavs.

Bubba Watson and Jason Day were on hand -- court side -- for Game 3 of the NBA Finals Wednesday night in Cleveland.

Both are huge fans of the NBA and Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry is a huge fan of golf and, it turns out, one heck of a player too.

Watson teased his trip to Game 3 earlier in the day by tweeting a photo of a signed LeBron James jersey with signed Kevin Durant shoes right in front of it.

And here's Watson at the game with Day and Ohio State University head football coach Urban Meyer.

Watson was able to get a little time in with Curry at the game too.

The seats... not bad at all.

And then, at the end of the game, Watson snuck up on Curry during an interview.

Here's the video, where Curry goes on to say he'll be watching Watson next week in the U.S. Open at Erin Hills:
