Nick Saban played golf with Ken Griffey Jr. at Augusta National. How was your Tuesday?
Alabama football head coach Nick Saban did an interview with WJOX's Cole Cubelic for the "McElroy and Cubelic in the Morning" radio show on Wednesday before Saban played in the Regions Tradition Pro-Am at Greystone Golf and Country Club.
"I just played Augusta yesterday with Ken Griffey Jr.," Saban said in response to a question about his putting.
Cubelic responded, "Just throw that out there — humble brag."
"He was my partner, thank God," Saban said of Griffey.
Griffey played in MLB from 1989-2010 with the Seattle Mariners, Cincinnati Reds and Chicago White Sox.
"I met him a couple times," Saban said of Griffey. "He has a couple sons that were prospects. I got to meet him along the way. But he's a really good guy and really good golfer. We had a lot of fun. I had — most of the time people complain about three-putts, but when you have multiple four-putts that's something you don't even want to talk about."
Saban was then asked how often he plays at Augusta National Golf Club.
"I usually play once a year," Saban said. "It's a unique place. I really enjoy going there. There's great people there, and it's a fun golf course."
