Truth & Rumors: Watch Bubba Watson on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Bubba Watson is in Los Angeles for Wednesday night's ESPY awards. And, as folk heroes are allowed to do, he stopped by The Tonight Show for a quick interview with Jay Leno. By now, we know what to expect from a Bubba interview: nods to his family, his General Lee, and a near-tear moment for good measure. The takeaways? Watson isn't that different from the rest of us. Just like you, he knew golf was his game when he shot a 62 at age 12; just like you, he shot 66 on his first date with his future wife, and, well, "Who doesn't wanna be in a boy band?" Watch the two-part interview below:

Watson is nominated for two ESPYs: Best Male Golfer, and Best Moment (for winning that sports coat he's always wearing...)

Jason Day to skip British?
All these young pros. They can't time a baby for their lives. First, Webb Simpson pulled out of the British Open to welcome a new human into the world. Now, Jason Day might skip the major after his first child (Dash Day!) was born earlier this week. As The Australian reports:

Day's wife Ellie gave birth to Dash James Day in Ohio and, although both mother and child are doing well, the world No 21 is yet to decide whether or not he will make the trip to the UK so soon after the birth.

The Queensland product says family comes first and he may well give up his spot at Royal Lytham and St Annes to be with his new family.

Day, ranked 21st in the world, is having a tough season on tour. He's currently 103rd in the FedEx Cup standings, and, unofficially, hasn't won since he grew his hair past his shoulders.

Top architects design mini-golf course at DC museum
There's finally a museum worth visiting in Washington, D.C. Not only is that National Building Museum actually a thing, but according to Business Insider it also has mini-golf inside.

The museum just opened an exhibit featuring a 12-hole mini-golf course with holes designed by leading local architects, landscape architects, and contractors.

The one-of-a-kind course will be open through Labor Day, and games cost $5 for non-members and $3 for members. If you like golf and air-conditioning, this exhibit's for you.

Oh, Business Insider, you get me. As we learned from at the AT&T National, golf outside in the DC area can be a hazardous proposition. If you're not trudging through a boiling mist of humidity, you're ducking for cover from the flying branches and brimstone that accompany summer storms. So this is good. Also, the pictures in the article make it look, well, pretty cool...
