Truth & Rumors: Watch the Golf Boys at Bubba Bash

Posted at 11:49 AM by Mike Walker

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.

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.
