Drop the Beat
For one reason or another, the game of golf has meshed with the rap game.
Perhaps it started with the original golf bad boys, The Golf Boys, and their original, seemingly out-of-the-blue drop of “Oh Oh Oh”, but that’s neither here nor there. The important thing is that golfers of all ages and skill levels are entering the rap game.
From The Golf Boys to a stand-up comedian named JiGGY, here’s a look at the recent golf rap videos circulating the interwebs that you simply must see…
“Oh Oh Oh” by The Golf Boys: The original. The tastemaker. The upper echelon. Those are just a few ways to describe the debut drop from The Golf Boys, otherwise known as Ben Crane, Hunter Mahan, Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson. Since its debut in June 2011, it has been viewed more than 6.5 million times.
“2.Oh” by The Golf Boys: It’s tough to duplicate organic success but that’s what The Golf Boys did with their most recent hit. Directed by singer-songwriter Mat Kearney, “2.Oh” sees the quartet name drop their way to a catchy and hilarious follow-up.
“I Love Golf” by Caleb C: In the rap game, marketing is half the battle. Consider that half of the battle won by Caleb C and whoever is behind the 5-year-old’s YouTube account. Billed as ‘The Most Anticipated Golf Rap Music Video of the Year,” “I Love Golf” is a serenade to the game by a kid who just likes to play.
“Lob Wedge” by JiGGY: I’ll be completely honest. I still don’t know what to make of this one. A stand-up comedian, JiGGY reminds us to not forget to pay our membership dues and shows us just how versatile the lob wedge is to a golfer.
