Marc Leishman got his second win of the year on Sunday at the BMW Championship and is at East Lake this week with a chance to win the FedExCup title and the $10 million bonus that comes with it.

So what would he do with all that extra cash? Probably not hire a lawn guy.

After his big win, the 33-year-old Australian gave a detailed description of how obsessed he is with mowing his own lawn, saying he's is out there every single day at least once. "Neighbors think i'm crazy," he told reporters.

Leishman added that it's definitely a form of stress relief for him and that it allows him time to go into his "nothing box."

"I think about nothing," he added.

He also contended it was his form of exercise since he's "not a gym rat at all."

Take that, Rory McIlroy.
