"Duck Dynasty" stars Jase and Willie Robertson plan to join professional golfer Bubba Watson to play in The Greenbrier Classic tournament in West Virginia on Wednesday, July 2. The Register-Herald reports that comedian George Lopez, NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin, and head coach for the New Orleans Saints, Sean Payton, might play at the tournament as well.
The 2014 Masters Tournament winner, Bubba Watson, seems to have formed a friendship with Jase and Willie Robertson. The three Christian men plan to play together at The Greenbrier Classic professional-amateur tournament next week. "[Watson] knows them well and speaks very highly of them. They're good people and a lot of fun, and their beliefs and morals are strong, just like Bubba's," says The Greenbrier resort owner, Jim Justice. Watson and the Robertson brothers played together at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans last year as well.
Justice - a hunter and fan of "Duck Dynasty" - says he is excited to have the Robertsons join the tournament roster. "We want The Greenbrier Classic to be an incredible golf tournament, but more than that, we want it to be fun. We want fans and spectators to enjoy everything about it, and this just adds to it," he says.
The Christian Post reports that Tiger Woods was also planning to play in the tournament, but had to pull out of it because of health reasons.
The Robertson men have been spotted on the green on more than one occasion. Jase and Jep joined Tim Tebow's charity golf tournament earlier this year, and country clubs have made for good late-night frog hunting on "Duck Dynasty" as well.
