What are friends for?

CROMWELL, Conn. -- Johnson Wagner just became the A.J. Burnett of the PGA Tour.

For those unfamiliar with Burnett, he's the pitcher for the New York Yankees who recently has gained much attention for throwing shaving-cream pies in the face of teammates who have made game-saving plays or game-winning hits.

Today at TPC River Highlands, Wagner snuck up on U.S. Open champ Lucas Glover as Glover got ready for his 12:50 p.m. pro-am tee time on the 10th hole and nailed him with a shaving-cream pie that left Glover's face totally covered in the white stuff.

Unfazed, Glover, without wiping much of the shaving cream off his face, calmly stepped up and striped a 3-wood down the fairway.

Would you expect anything less from our national champion?
