The Golf Boys: Ranking Ben Crane and the PGA's Newest Boy Band

Aside from Arnold Palmer, there really hasn't been a charismatic, magnetic figure in the modern world of golf. As beloved as Jack Nicklaus was and still is, he was widely considered "drab" and "robotic" during the early years on Tour.

And while there have been plenty of colorful heroes along the way—Lee Trevino, Sam Snead, John Daly, etc.—the PGA Tour doesn't have quite as many "characters"  as some of the other sports. After all, that's what you'd expect from a country club sport that prides itself on integrity and tradition and is so much a "gentleman's game" that players keep their own scores and enforce their own penalties.

And while that probably won't change any time soon, it's nice to see that some of the younger generation of golfers can still be goofy and a bit silly even in such a buttoned-up sport.

Case in point the new internet videos featuring Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan, Ben Crane and Bubba Watson (my choice to win this week at Congressional).
