Truth & Rumors: Watch the Golf Boys at Bubba Bash

They're back!

The Golf Boys -- the "musical" group of Ben Crane, Hunter Mahan, Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson -- performed their hit "Oh, Oh, Oh" Tuesday night at Bubba Bash in Columbus, Ohio.

Watson's Bubba Bash is a Christian rap concert that raises money for a medical clinic in Kenya.

5-year-old makes hole-in-one in Wisconsin
Gary D'Amato of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel posts an item that will make you laugh or cry, depending on how long you've waited for your first ace:

YOUNG ACE: Max Frieseke of Glendale smacked a drive and watched his ball soar toward the green, bounce onto it and roll into the cup for a hole-in-one. Good for him, but what's the big deal? Well, Max is 5 years old and is finishing K-4 at Holy Family Parish School in Whitefish Bay. He used the driver from his starter set to ace the 53-yard third hole at Lake Park Golf Course while playing recently with his parents, Bob and Beth Frieseke. "Beth and I were going crazy," Bob said. "We were more excited about it than Max was. In his mind, he thought it was like a hole-in-one in mini-golf."

Montgomerie might set his sights on the 'senior grand slam'
After failing to qualify for this year's U.S. Open, 49-year-old Colin Montgomerie said he might turn his attention to the 'senior grand slam' when he turns 50 next June, according to Martin Dempster of The Scotsman.

“I may as well come clean and say I am tempted by the idea of a ‘senior grand slam’,” admitted the eight-time European No 1. “A tall order, I know, but golfing dreams are not solely the preserve of the young.

“I turn 50 a month ahead of the 2013 Senior Open and I will see how I enjoy the camaraderie that week. I’m beginning to suspect I will like it a lot. I will be in the class of ’63 that includes Vijay Singh and Davis Love."

Montgomerie is our choice for best player to never win a major -- sorry, Luke -- and we look forward to seeing him on the senior tour.

UPDATE: Tiger's niece to play in Wegmans LPGA Championship

Golfweek.com reports that Tiger Woods's niece Cheyenne Woods will make her debut as a professional at the Wegmans LPGA Championship on June 7.

Cheyenne Woods, a recent Wake Forest graduate, will play her first tournament as a professional June 7-10 at the Wegmans LPGA Championship. It’s the second major of the LPGA season.

Woods, the niece of Tiger Woods, will play Wegmans on a sponsor exemption. She also played this event in 2009 as an amateur but missed the cut. That was her first start in a professional tournament.
