Bubba Watson is done with his Masters after shooting a 5-over 77 Sunday that included a 10 on the 12th hole. The defending champion finished the tournament at 7-over 295, 17 shots worse than the 278 he shot a year ago. Watson had no trouble with the 10th hole, where he famously hit a wedge out of the trees to beat Louis Oosthuizen in a playoff. He made par on the hole Sunday, but two holes later ran into a disaster on the par-3 12th. Watson hit his tee shot in the water, then hit another one in the water from the drop area. His fifth went into a back bunker, but his shot from there rolled past the pin into the water. He made a 12-footer for his 10.

While there is no confirmation exactly where this peculiar photo was snapped or why Bubba Watson and Shaquille O’Neal are hanging out together — both of them are oddballs, so “peas in a pod” and so on and so forth (although that would be one misshapen pea pod given the disparate size of the two athletes) — it nevertheless is an amusing photo that the NBA legend tweeted...
