Josh Donaldson Tees Off at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Whenever Josh Donaldson decides to retire from baseball (in the distant future), he can probably just trade in taking swings in the batter’s box for taking swings on the tee block.

By now, it’s pretty apparent that Donaldson is quite the accomplished golfer. The man can swing a stick like nobody else in two different sports, and the Bringer of Rain made another appearance this weekend at the PGA Pro-Am Tournament at Pebble Beach.

As you might remember, Josh Donaldson met his new best friend in Justin Timberlake at last year’s Pro-Am.


Today marks the final day of the tournament as Josh Donaldson is paired up with Jason Kokrak. The pair sit at combined -16 on the tournament, tied for 18th place on the Pro-Am leaderboard.

Funny enough, Josh Donaldson, Justin Timberlake and Billy Murray are all tied heading into the final 18 holes. Jordan Spieth and Jake Owen currently hold a commanding lead at -25.

At any rate, Donaldson begun the day on Friday by making some solid drives on the range.

Yesterday, he made a nice recovery shot from the rough.

And in between swings, Josh Donaldson even had time to take a few photos with fans.
