Golfers have magic touch with ceremonial first pitches

On June 13, 2011 British Open runner-up Dustin Johnson took BP with his golf club and tossed out the first pitch before Matt Cain's perfect game at AT&T Park.

Five days later, 2012 Masters champion Bubba Watson was on hand to do the honors at Citi Field before R.A. Dickey threw his second consecutive one-hitter.

Pitchers across the league must be begging U.S. Open champ Webb Simpson to pay a visit during their next start.
