No, Bubba, leave the swim shorts at home

Graeme McDowell and Bubba Watson exchanged Twitter posts regarding the Ryder Cup weather in Wales next week.

McDowell: "What's happening dude??? You ready for sunny Wales??"

Watson: "yes should I bring my swim shorts!!!"

The weather forecast for Ryder Cup week is excellent, though not swim weather. AccuWeather.com calls for sunny and 62 in Newport, Wales, on Friday, Oct. 1, clouds and sun and 62 on Saturday and clouds and sun and 60 on Sunday.

Downright balmy, by Wales' standards. Those rain suits with their names on the back? The U.S. might find no need for them. Even from Monday through Thursday, the forecast is for partly sunny every day.

All subject to change, of course.
