Just when you thought golf was cool, here comes the FedEx Cup rap video

By Alex Myers

Henrik Stenson walked away from the Tour Championship as the big winner -- and not just because he claimed the $10 million bonus for winning the FedEx Cup. Perhaps more importantly, the Swede avoided being in what has to be considered the worst rap video ever created.

Apparently, NBC and the PGA Tour put together the promotional music video prior to the Tour Championship. Bad idea. But judging by the fact that it had just over 1,000 views on YouTube as of Monday afternoon, the tour hasn't been promoting it. Good idea.

There's not a whole lot to say other than we feel sorry for players like Adam Scott, Jim Furyk and Luke Donald who were part of this, um, project. We hope their "street cred" can make a full recovery. Someday.

Check out the video below. And if you actually make it through the entire thing, you deserve a FedEx Cup bonus of your own.

UPDATE: Apparently, NBC created the video. Either way, it has been taken down.
