ICYMI: NFL Star JJ Watt Shoots 117 at Erin Hills


JJ Watt, the consensus best defensive player in the NFL, is a big-time celebrity in his home state of Wisconsin, where he toiled for the University of Wisconsin Badgers before being drafted by the Houston Texans.

Watt got to play Erin Hills the day after the U.S. Open. And while a 117 would be considered a dreadful score for a professional, it was actually a pleasant surprise for Watt, who predicted beforehand that he would shoot a 147.
