The Open Championship is at Royal Liverpool, and that means we're getting Beatles references aplenty. ESPN had the brilliant idea to ask various golfers if they could name all four Beatles. Lee Westwood nailed all four without pausing. Ian Poulter groused about "pop quizzes." Rory McIlroy named John, Paul, Ringo and "George Lucas." And then there was Bubba:

Yeah. There's no room for Beatlemania in Bubba Golf, apparently. But it does beg the question: what does Bubba know? A non-comprehensive, highly speculative list:

• The names of every Dukes of Hazzard cast member, including cousins Coy and Vance
• What every adjective in Waffle House's "scattered, smothered, covered, chunked, capped" hash browns means
• Every single shot he's ever mis-hit, and whose fault it was
• The number of green jackets he owns

Yeah. We don't watch these guys for their musical knowledge.

(Of note: you won't be hearing any Beatles songs on ESPN this weekend because of the astronomical cost of licensing them. So you'll have to make do with Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die.")
