LEMONT, Ill. – Bubba Watson’s getting a jump on his American teammates in preparation for the Ryder Cup matches in Wales.

It’s a most unusual jump.

“Bubba’s been playing Celtic Manor on Xbox,” Rickie Fowler said. “I’m not sure how he’s faring.”

Fowler plays some Xbox golf and was asked if it’s helpful.

“You can see similarities,” Fowler said. “I played the World Golf Championship event this year at Firestone and a couple weeks later I decided to play it in the video game. It’s pretty close, but I think I play better in real life than I do in the video game.

“I probably get more upset playing the video game than I do on the golf course. You think of it being easy, but, for me, the video game is tough.”
