The Golf Boys and 10 Other Golfer Musical Groups We'd Love to See

0 of 10

    The Golf Boys opened a can on the music industry with their recent hit "Oh Oh Oh" this past month.

    The group that consists of professional golfers Bubba Watson, Ben Crane, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan have taken the golf world by storm with their chart-topper and hilarious music video to go with it.

    What does this tell us about the secret life of golfers?

    Stick to your day job, boys.

    Maybe it was Watson's carpet of chest hair, their sick, choreographed dance moves or the resounding "Ohh La Lolli Lolli," but The Golf Boys have taken the sport out of its shell and into the music spotlight.

    The group got us thinking about other groups of golfers that could form from the golf world.

    This is what we came up with.

The Golf Boys

1 of 10

    This is the group that all other golf groups will be compared to from here on out.

    They are trendsetters of golf to music and will forever have the No. 1 golf song in the world.

    Rickie Fowler's lyrical gifts are impeccable and Bubba Watson's dance moves make the music video.  Pair that with jokesters Ben Crane and Hunter Mahan, and you have music magic.

Hippy Lettuce

2 of 10

    The reggae band known as Hippy Lettuce consists of two people, Robert Garrigus and Matt Every.

    Garrigus just recently spoke about how he and several other players used to smoke pot during Nationwide events, and Every was arrested for marijuana possession back in 2010. 

    This could potentially be a music group made in hippy heaven.

Los Pantalones

3 of 10

    Loudmouth golf pants have taken the golf world by storm, but before the brand, it was just Ian Poulter's sense of style.

    Naturally, Poulter would be the lead vocalist for the mariachi band known as Los Pantalones.

    The group consists of Poulter, John Daly and the late Rodney Dangerfield, the true visionary for crazy pants back in the move Caddyshack.

The Wrong Side of the Ball

4 of 10

    Left-handed golfers are few and far between on the PGA Tour, which is why it is no surprise to see them get together in a band called The Wrong Side of the Ball.

    The group consists of Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Mike Weir and Nick O'Hern and they play a somewhat weird techno-style of music, thereby confirming the idea that left-handed people are weird.

The Legends

5 of 10

    I may be stretching here a bit, but would it not be great to see a band called The Legends?

    It would be a group consisting of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player with several songs featuring Tiger Woods on the track.

    Woods would, of course, play the french horn.

Masters of the Dance Floor

6 of 10

    The best putters on the PGA Tour today are arguably Luke Donald, Steve Stricker and Brandt Snedeker.

    Donald was the No. 1 player in the world a minute ago, Stricker can always roll the rock and Snedeker is always at the top of every tournament in putting average.

    I am not sure what kind of a musical group this would make, seeing as none of these players really have much of a personality, but maybe this will be one of the bands with no lyrics.

The Big Stix

7 of 10

    What genre would the longest hitters on the PGA Tour most likely represent?

    Well, seeing as the longest hitters on tour are Bubba Watson (third appearance in this list), J.B. Holmes and Dustin Johnson, then country music would be a pretty safe bet.

The Long Putters

8 of 10

    The long-putter sensation has taken the PGA Tour by storm in these last couple of years, and with good finishes by Adam Scott and Vijay Singh, we should see these things become even more popular.

    Scott and Singh would form this musical group with Scott playing the role of Justin Timberlake in N'Sync and Singh in the background with a guitar or some smooth instrument, just like his game on the golf course.

The Wacky Mops

9 of 10

    Yes, the name is king of lame, but what do you expect out of guys with hair like Ian Poulter (pictured)?

    Poulter is making his second appearance on this list, after joining the Los Pantalones earlier, but joining him in the Wacky Mops is Rickie Fowler (second appearance), Camilo Villegas and Charley Hoffman.

    Hoffman will bring some good personality to the group, we know about Fowler's rapping ability and Villegas can do some jumping jacks or something, being that he is so agile when reading putts.

The Next Big Thing

10 of 10

    The Next Big Thing sounds like it could actually be a pretty good name for a music group.  However, the name belongs to the group consisting of Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler (third appearance) and Jason Day.

    Again, Fowler's rapping ability will be on display in this group, while McIlroy plays some instrument like an accordion or bagpipes—something Irish like that.

    Day is in this group solely for the fact that his wife is extremely attractive.  She will be the main backup dancer.
