WATCH: Comparing Pitching Arms of Fowler, Spieth, Johnson

Rickie Fowler
Rickie Fowler threw a bullpen session with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Following his fourth PGA Tour victory at the Honda Classic and a trip down to Mexico City for the WGC-Mexico Championship, it is time for Rickie Fowler to relax back at home in Jupiter, Fla.

Jupiter also happens to be the home of his favorite baseball team, the St. Louis Cardinals. So why not go and throw a bullpen session when he has the chance?

That’s a pretty fluid throwing motion there. Maybe he has a future outside of golf?

This brings us back to when Jordan Spieth threw out the first pitch at a Texas Rangers and it was a strike right down the middle.

Zach Johnson then threw out the first pitch at a Chicago Cubs game and registered a 95 mph fastball. Well, OK, maybe the radar gun was a little generous.  

Watch Johnson and Spieth on ESPN. With a big wager on the line between Spieth and Johnson, ESPN broke down the ceremonial first pitches to decide who threw the better ball. The fact that “Johnson looked like a dentist” seemed to work against him.
