CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Masters Champion Bubba Watson wasn't around for the weekend at the Wells Fargo Championship at the Quail Hollow Club.

Watson failed to make the cut, posting a 4-over 76 on Friday. He and his golfing buddies, Hunter Mahan, Rickie Fowler, and Ben Crane know how to cut up away from the course.
 
The group came up with a rap video, known as Golf Boys 2.0, earlier this spring and it's gone viral on the web.

Watson said, "it's just a way to goof around and have fun."

It's more than that. The video was actually produced to raise money and awareness for a non for profit organization known as charity. Water.

It helps build clean water programs for people living in developing countries, including Africa, Southeast Asia and South America.
 
  "The golf game is so mental and you have to release somehow," Waston, the 2012 Masters Champion said.

The Golf Boys 2.0 video features Fowler, Watson, Mahan, and Crane dressed in costume and singing lyrics about other golfers on tour, including Tiger Woods and 2013 Masters Champion Adam Scott.
 
Watson and his group head to the TPC at Sawgrass for the 2013 Players Championship this week in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
