Golf Australia Express : GA Express 257
O NCE known more for his slow play than for his antics, it all changed for Ben Crane when he engineered a series of faux instructional golf videos that turned him into a household name among the golfing fraternity. The videos, of course, paved the way for the infamous Golf Boys, which saw Crane join forces with Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson and Hunter Mahan and release their own songs. Don’t expect the same level of hijinks when he’s on the course, but he isn’t averse to having a mid-round laugh, either. LEE TREVINO BEN CRANE A NYONE who channels Happy Gilmore and rides his driver like a horse is a winner in our books. Double points for doing it at the Ryder Cup. Weekley is a character, with his laid-back drawl and love of a good laugh endearing him to plenty of patrons and fellow pros. His story about getting beaten up by an orangutan might not carry much favour with animal rights groups, but the man can spin a great (and humorous) yarn. A SK any long-time golf fan who the funniest player they’ve witnessed is, and Lee Trevino’s name is the universal response. A brilliant entertainer, Trevino was – and remains – a master storyteller, with his quick wit and cracking one-liners endearing him to people to this day. Trevino’s tales, such as his oft- told story about meeting Raymond Floyd for the first time, are the kind of yarns you’d pay to hear. BOO WEEKLEY SEE HIM IN ACTION HERE
