Ben Crane has made a great name for himself on (......) and off the course.

Crane recently sent out on his Instagram a short video of his latest putting technique. It's a bit unorthodox, hard to copy and probably illegal - but it's fun to watch!



Crane has recently established a reputation for one of the more fun, irreverent and light-hearted personalities on Tour, combining with friends Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson and Hunter Mahan on the Golf Boys hit "Oh, oh, oh " and the follow-up "Golf Boys 2.Oh"


Crane has also, like Justin Timberlake, struck out on his own for a solo act.  Crane's YouTube channel has generated millions of visits for his series of videos where he has fun talking about all kinds of golf topics including make light of his reputation for being - well, not fast. 


Crane is having a pretty good season, having made 6 of 7 cuts and one top ten to his credit thus far. I think it's fair to say Crane's new putting technique will not be making a debut in tournament play anytime soon - but you never know.  Regardless, thanks to the powers of social media, one time is enough to get a lot of fun attention.
