The Chicago Cubs are in Oakland to take on the Athletics this weekend, and baseball’s best team decided to hit the links on its off day.

A group of prominent Cubs played 18 holes at Pebble Beach Golf Links on Thursday on an overcast afternoon. Chicago first baseman Anthon Rizzo tweeted out the team’s visit:

Starting pitcher Jon Lester, who beat the Athletics on Friday night, had a brief playing stint in Oakland a few years back. Lester booked the Cubs’ tee-time at Pebble Beach.

Any guesses on who shot the lowest score in this picture? Something tells me Rizzo has a sweet lefty stroke.
