Underrated moments in golf history: That time Psy's "Gangnam Style" took center stage at a PGA Tour event

On Wednesday, Korean rapper Psy's famed "Gangnam Style" music video made more news for maxing out YouTube's video counter at 2,147,483,647. Yes, that's more than two BILLION for those who aren't good with numbers.

Here's the official video (there are others with tons of views as well), which was uploaded on July 15, 2012, in case you forgot or are the only person on Earth with access to a computer who hasn't seen it yet:

A YouTube video maxing out on the ability to count views has never happened before, and Google quickly addressed the issue in a statement, "We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer." Whatever that means. In any matter, Google figured out a fix -- at least, for now -- and the number is rising again.

You may remember "Gangnam Style" reaching the PGA Tour during the final round of the 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open. After making a birdie at TPC Scottsdale's raucous 16th hole, James Hahn did an extended -- and well done -- version of the dance:

YouTube probably doesn't have to worry about Hahn's video breaking its counter, but the clip is up to more than 328,000 views (only 2.1 BILLION and change behind!). Not bad for a golfer whose biggest claim to fame is. . . OK, so that's probably his biggest claim to fame.

UPDATE: After beating Dustin Johnson in a playoff at Riviera on Sunday, Hahn is now known for winning the Northern Trust Open and for his dance moves. With the victory, Hahn qualifies for the Masters for the first time. We don't anticipate him going Gangnam style at Augusta National, but we can dream, right?
