Bubba Watson plays round with Justin Bieber after missing Genesis cut

Bubba Watson may have missed the cut at the Genesis Invitational last week, but that didn't stop the two-time Masters champion from enjoying some weekend golf with a good friend of his and that friend happened to be Justin Bieber.

Watson was one of the tipster's favourites to win the Genesis Invitational last week given his fantastic record at the Riviera Country Club.

With three of Watson's 14 PGA Tour victories coming at Riviera Country Club in California, the 41-year-old was tipped to be one of the top contenders last week, especially given his decent form lately.

It wasn't to be for Watson as he went on to shoot two-over par through two rounds, missing the cut for the weekend, but that didn't stop Watson from enjoying some more golf.

His good friend and global pop sensation Justin Bieber had been in New York promoting his new album 'Changes' but made his way back to LA to tee it up with Watson and some friends.

Watson and Bieber have been friends for years after the two first met through a mutual friend and Watson began giving advice to Bieber on how to deal with success at a young age.

There was a time when Watson fancied himself as a bit of a popstar, when he made a boy band known as 'Golf Boys' with Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan and Ben Crane.

“There’s no [boy band] competition for us,” Watson told TMZ Sports back in 2016. “But obviously I love Justin Bieber. I’m trying to get him to join the band but he’s not doing it right now.”
