How do you make golf swing videos cool? Set them to music like Pat Perez
Inspiration comes in different forms to different people. Some might not associate golf with music. Others can't think of a better way to be inspired to practice.
Wherever you fall on that spectrum, what better way to make a golf swing video come to life than setting the video to some soul music? Or rap? Talk about inspiration.
Pat Perez is one of the best PGA Tour players to follow on social media. Double P brings a different swag to the game and mixes in his personality on Twitter and Instagram effortlessly. It's why the website Chive and him are natural fit -- and he enjoys interacting with fans on all platforms.
His efforts to get Danny Lee a girlfriend was his most recent hilarious social campaign. He's working with Callaway to make that happen. In the meantime, he has been posting his swings to Instagram with tunes mixed in.
His first video? He went with Drake's "Headlines." This was right after headlines were made by Will Wilcox and Brendan Steele got into it at TPC River Highlands with Wilcox playing Drake's music on the range. Love the sense of humor.
Perez seems to be a big #yachtrock hashtag guy. Most of his swing videos feature soul music or jazz. That's pretty typical golfer, but we'll give it to Double P -- these beats work pretty well with the rhythm of a swing.

We love getting a behind-the-scenes look at tour players on the go. And getting to see Perez's swing during his practice round is pretty cool. Plus, it's more interesting with music. And Perez's doing a great job of pairing his music with a theme involved.
We're sure more tour players will start bringing this touch of flair to the social game!
