Buster Posey sank a 27-foot birdie putt at the PGA Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Giants catcher and three-time World Series champion Buster Posey took his talents to Pebble Beach over Valentine's Day weekend to show of a different set of skills. Posey was paired with PGA Tour pro Nick Watney at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am tournament.

The pair finished 34-strokes under par after their four rounds of work, good enough to share fifth place with hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, country music singer Jake Owen and their respective PGA partners. More importantly, though, Posey earned himself some bragging rights by beating Giants pitcher Matt Cain ... and by sinking a 27-foot birdie putt on Pebble Beach Golf Links' par 4 11th.

It's circular. It's like a carousel. You pay the quarter, you get on the horse, it goes up and down, and AROUND. It's circular. Circle, with the music, the flow. All good things.
