As I said back at Oh Oh Oh!, someone at The A Position has to keep up with the Golf Boys. So here we go again, with “2.Oh” and reuniting those bad golf boys Ben Crane, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan.
As before, it appears to be all for fun, as well as a charitable undertaking, this time benefiting charity:water, which aims to provide clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. Don’t ask what pummeling drivers through watermelons or sticking one’s head in a fountain of foaming cola has to do with this. The answer is surely nothing. But if it helps, well all righty then.
It’s probably pointless to sit in a critic’s seat in the face of “2.Oh” and all too easy to say that this one, though clearly professionally done, lacks some of the originality and rough-around-the-edges appeal of “Oh Oh Oh,” as well as having a less memorable tune. So I won’t do that. Nor will I deconstruct the lyrics, though it would be curious to enumerate how many PGA Tour pros are alluded to in the song.
The members of the Golf Boys don’t appear to be overly distracted by making goofy music videos as far their day jobs go. They had some notable successes on tour last year, particularly Mr. Watson, here bravely appearing in a baby bonnet as well as his hillbilly overalls. Now if he’s only show up in that outfit at the Masters Champions Dinner this year….
