Posted at 2:45 PM by Samantha Glover

Ben Crane, who is notoriously slow on the course, pokes fun at the issue of slow play in his latest YouTube video, "Slow Life."

The four-time PGA Tour winner has often crossed over into comedy, appearing in the Golf Boys videos and having produced a number of hilarious-yet-self-deprecating videos that address problems in his life.

Truth & Rumors: Watch Ben Crane's newest video 'Hair Attachment'

Posted at 12:39 PM by Mark Dee

"The fastest thing in my life…was…my balding," says Ben Crane (very slowly) in his newest video, "Hair Attachment," which premiered Friday morning on The Golf Channel's Morning Drive.

That's right, the Golf Boys' token "Strange One" is back with his most cinematic release to date. The heartfelt two minutes is complete with the signature unitard, a German shrink, and a hairpiece that seems modeled after late-era Bernhard Langer. There's a moral, too. Spoiler alert: Don't go bald.

But we'll save the jokes for Crane. Check out the video below:

Truth & Rumors: Watch Bubba Watson on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Posted at 12:50 PM by Mark Dee

Bubba Watson is in Los Angeles for Wednesday night's ESPY awards. And, as folk heroes are allowed to do, he stopped by The Tonight Show for a quick interview with Jay Leno. By now, we know what to expect from a Bubba interview: nods to his family, his General Lee, and a near-tear moment for good measure. The takeaways? Watson isn't that different from the rest of us. Just like you, he knew golf was his game when he shot a 62 at age 12; just like you, he shot 66 on his first date with his future wife, and, well, "Who doesn't wanna be in a boy band?" Watch the two-part interview below:

Part 1:

Part 2:
 

Watson is nominated for two ESPYs: Best Male Golfer, and Best Moment (for winning that sports coat he's always wearing...)

Jason Day to skip British?
All these young pros. They can't time a baby for their lives. First, Webb Simpson pulled out of the British Open to welcome a new human into the world. Now, Jason Day might skip the major after his first child (Dash Day!) was born earlier this week. As The Australian reports:

Day's wife Ellie gave birth to Dash James Day in Ohio and, although both mother and child are doing well, the world No 21 is yet to decide whether or not he will make the trip to the UK so soon after the birth.

The Queensland product says family comes first and he may well give up his spot at Royal Lytham and St Annes to be with his new family.

Day, ranked 21st in the world, is having a tough season on tour. He's currently 103rd in the FedEx Cup standings, and, unofficially, hasn't won since he grew his hair past his shoulders.

Top architects design mini-golf course at DC museum
There's finally a museum worth visiting in Washington, D.C. Not only is that National Building Museum actually a thing, but according to Business Insider it also has mini-golf inside.

The museum just opened an exhibit featuring a 12-hole mini-golf course with holes designed by leading local architects, landscape architects, and contractors.

The one-of-a-kind course will be open through Labor Day, and games cost $5 for non-members and $3 for members. If you like golf and air-conditioning, this exhibit's for you.

Oh, Business Insider, you get me. As we learned from at the AT&T National, golf outside in the DC area can be a hazardous proposition. If you're not trudging through a boiling mist of humidity, you're ducking for cover from the flying branches and brimstone that accompany summer storms. So this is good. Also, the pictures in the article make it look, well, pretty cool...

Truth & Rumors: David Feherty backs Tim Tebow for president

Posted at 12:53 PM by Mick Rouse

During his live Super Bowl special, David Feherty sat down with Tim Tebow and pressed the young QB if leading the nation could be in his future after he finishes leading mediocre football teams to playoff berths. Feherty pleaded his case to Tebow, saying, “Would you ever think of running for office? Please? Because, here’s the thing, we’ve got Romney and Gingrich here at the minute and I don’t know what anybody else thinks, but they’ve got the sort of faces you never get tired of punching.” 

Tebow didn’t completely knock the notion, though, responding, “For me, it could be something in my future. It’s something I’ll have to think about and pray about.” 

Check out an excerpt of Feherty’s interview with Tebow in the video below, as well as extended clips from his Super Bowl special. 

 

  

Golf Boys reunion 

It may not be as big news as the Beach Boys's 50th anniversary reunion and tour, but for a brief moment, Ben Crane and Bubba Watson, one-half of golf’s favorite boy band, kept the party going on TPC Scottsdale’s 16th hole. Missing in action from the impromptu concert was Rickie Fowler, who was in a different playing group at the Phoenix Open, and Hunter Mahan, who was busy getting cut in Qatar

  

I may be alone in this, but I never get sick of Ben Crane’s racing helmet and goggles. For more images of the Waste Management Open’s party hole, check out our gallery here

Nager appointed as USGA’s 62nd president 

During the USGA’s annual meeting in Houston, Glen Nager was announced as the 62nd president of North American golf’s governing body, reports Ryan Ballengee. Nager has been elected to serve a one-year term and hopes to keep the organization focused on challenges faced by predecessor Jim Hyler, including improving participation and environmental stewardship in the game. 

“At a time when the game faces increasingly complex challenges, we must recommit ourselves to the USGA’s mission,” Nager said at the annual meeting. “To sustain the game, we must do more. We have to promote a more enjoyable, more affordable and more welcoming experience for golfers – without fundamentally changing the game itself.” 

Nager, 53, resides in Washington, D.C. where he is a partner in the Jones Day law firm. He has an extensive background in constitutional law and has argued 13 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. Nager is also a single-handicap golfer and was named the volunteer general counsel of the USGA in 2006. He most recently served as chairman of the USGA’s Rules of Golf, Commercial and Compensation committee.

Truth & Rumors: Police reopen case in murder of McIlroy's great uncle

Posted at 4:18 PM by Mike Walker

The Daily Mail online reports that police in Northern Ireland will reopen their investigation of the 1972 murder of Rory McIlroy’s great uncle during the “Troubles,” the sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland between mainly Catholic republicans and Protestant loyalists.

The PSNI [Police Service of Northern Ireland] has confirmed that it is re-investigating the sectarian murder of Rory McIlroy’s great-uncle Joseph, who was murdered for moving into a protestant area of East Belfast.

The 1972 killing – in which Joe was shot through his kitchen door as he fixed a washing machine – is among the hundreds of unsolved murders being re-examined by a PSNI review team.

After McIlroy won the U.S. Open, a fan handed him an Irish tricolor flag, which quickly disappeared, according to IrishCentral.com, which said the incident led to debate on Internet message boards.

Some loyalist fans in the North have claimed the disappearance of the flag as a victory for their cause, others have confirmed that the Catholic McIlroy has no interest in the politics of Northern Ireland’s past.

His parents Gerry and Rosie are both Catholics. Gerry’s father Jimmy, the first McIlroy to grace the fairways of Holywood golf club, was one of the first Catholics to work in the Harlaand and Wolf shipyard.

Larry David on the Five Stages of Golf in The New Yorker
Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David files a humor piece in The New Yorker about how the five stages of grief apply to golf as well.

My first stage: Anger. There was a time when I was always angry on the course. Driving fast in the cart. Throwing clubs. Constantly berating myself. “You stink, four-eyes! You stink at everything. You can’t even open a bottle of wine! You can’t swipe a credit card at the drugstore! You can’t swipe. And you’ve never even been to the Guggenheim. The Guggenheim! And call your parents, you selfish bastard!” Then I’d walk off the course and vow never to play again, only to return the following week for more of the same.

David joked about his passion for golf in the October 2010 issue of Golf Magazine:

If there’s an afterlife, and I come face to face with the Big Guy, I think he’ll look at me and say, “Golf? Really? That’s what you did for 80 years? You idiot!”

Women golfers can make horrible music videos too
You’re probably trying to forget the Golf Boys’ “Oh Oh Oh” video, where Hunter Mahan, Ben Crane, Bubba Watson and Rickie Fowler embarrassed themselves for a good cause. Now some Ladies European Tour players are getting in on the fun.

Yes, it's for a good cause, but be warned: Once you see this boy-band video of Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan, Ben Crane and Bubba Watson, you might not be able to forget it.
