Some things you might not have known about Barnes

June 21, 2009

Q: You are friends with Ricky Barnes. You guys spend some time together?

A: We went to school together at Arizona. So when I train in Phoenix, I train at the facility adidas has. We usually hang out and go to a basketball game or go play golf. If there is an Arizona alumni thing, they usually bring us out to do clinics and stuff like that.

UPDATE: On the Gulbis front, here's a Twitter post from her from Friday: "I am cheering for all the guys that Butch Harmon teaches, Nick Watney, Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, what a group!!!!" No mention of Barnes. Decide for yourself what this means.
