Tenuous golf connection

Drop what you're doing and check out this incredible golf-themed video parody of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody"

The problem with parody songs? Unless you're "Weird Al" Yankovic, they usually come across as cheesy, unfunny, and they are generally not well done.

Not this one.

The Grind: Watch Lee Westwood sing and a very dangerous trick shot

Nigel Tait's annual golf buddies trip to Australia has a tradition of featuring parody songs. We're going to assume this rendition of Queen's famed "Bohemian Rhapsody" is the group's best. Check it out:

Tait had help from his golf mates with the lyrics and in the video, but it appears that he was responsible for all instruments, lead vocals, harmonies and sound effects. Very impressive.

"Golfing really matters, anyone can see. Golfing really matters. Golfing really matters to me . . ." Tait swoons near the end of the song.

We can tell, Nigel. We can tell.
