The last time we saw J.B. Holmes, he was busy helping the Ryder Cup USA team to a victory at Hazeltine -- it's first win since 2008 at Valhalla, which also happened to be the last team Holmes was a member of.

Well, it looks like he's enjoying some downtime now... if you consider run ins with rattlesnakes enjoyable.

Personally, I don't consider that enjoyable at all, but Holmes didn't seem to mind:

Clay shooting sounds like fun.

Close encounters with deadly snakes while clay shooting? Not so much.

Either way, sweet camo Ryder Cup hat, J.B.
