'Golf Boy' Crane goes solo in new video 'Bubble Boy'
Series: Golf Buzz

Ben Crane, who along with fellow PGA Tour stars Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan make up the golf boy band (?), 'The Golf Boys,' has decided to go solo in his latest project.
Crane, the final player to qualify for the PGA Tour FedExCup Playoffs at No. 125, takes to rapping in his latest effort about what it's like to be the, "Bubble Boy."
Here's the description Crane has on the video:
At 125th in the FedEx Cup Rankings, I barely snuck into the Playoffs. The Twittersphere has been calling me "Bubble Boy" all week. It inspired this song from Mat Kearney, performed by me.
We've got to admit, while it might not be quite as funny as earlier Crane videos, the man deserves kudos for being able to laugh at his current situation. Perhaps it will loosen him up on this pressure-filled week?
