Video: Like it or not, here comes the 'Golf Boys'
BETHESDA, Md. -- No doubt, there is much to ridicule about the new Golf Boys video "Oh, Oh, Oh," that debuted Tuesday night on Golf Channel. The music video, a phrase we use very loosely here, features Ben Crane, Bubba Watson, Hunter Mahan, and Rickie Fowler essentially repeating the title refrain dozens of times, and then mixing in one solo line apiece.
Then there's the attire: Crane, who has already made his mark in previous videos, wearing the same workout gear/helmet concoction; Fowler in a biker outfit straight out of the Village People; Watson in farmer's overalls exposing considerable chest hair; and Mahan dressed up as a pimp.
So in other words, this is probably not a video Hogan would have made.
But, and this is a big but, the video is evidence that while European golfers recently have garnered all the attention both on the course and in social media, American players have a sense of humor as well. And most important, the proceeds of the single's sales on iTunes will go directly to charity.
Which is good, at least in part because it proves these guys aren't looking to quit their day jobs anytime soon.
