Bubba Watson is having himself a week.

The 2-time Masters champion took to the hardwood for the NBA Celebrity All-Star Challenge on Friday. While his jumper wasn't the sharpest on the court, his ability to drain a shot from downtown was on full display Sunday back on the golf course.

Watson found himself in the greenside bunker on the 14th hole and executed the perfect shot to hole out from the sand and take a two-shot lead at the Genesis Open.

Props to caddie Ted Scott for apparently calling the hole-out beforehand.
