LOS ANGELES (AP) Bubba Watson started with a 7-iron that stopped rolling 18 inches from the cup for a tap-in eagle . He chipped in for birdie. He moved the ball left and right, whatever Riviera required, and finished with a 6-under 65 for a one-shot lead Saturday in the Genesis Open.

Yes, golf is much easier for him than basketball.

And the highlights are going to look a lot better than when he took part in the NBA All-Star celebrity challenge Friday night.
