Give Tim Finchem Another Tums: Gangnam Style Comes To Golf!

From Saturday's Waste Management Open, James Hahn after a birdie on 16…posted by the PGA Tour:



The GolfCentral Daily team set Hahn's fantastic reaction to the appropriate music, if you are so inclined. Enjoy it before the Ponte Vedra Copyright Scrooge gets it taken down.

GOOD STUFF! And hilarious and totally appropriate for this event and especially that hole.

That was GREAT!!!!!

He had the correct supination going I believe, so Hogan would approve.

Sometimes you gotta have fun. Now, if I can get one of those Ben Crane shirts...

Now that's what I'm talking about!! a little fun...and a good Gangnam stylist at that!! More please!

I'm not sure I had any idea who this guy was before now but dang that was awesome! If I'm ever in his gallery I'm gonna compliment him ;0)

Now here's the thing, think about everything going through his mind on that 20-footer. Clearly he'd practiced that routine...and doing it after a par just would not have been appropriate. So on the tee box he's thinking "if I make a birdie I'm doing the dance", and then he hits it 20-feet. Then the whole time he's surveying and executing the putt he's thinking "ok as soon as I make this I'm doin' the dance"...then he's got the cojones to make the damn thing!!

Just fantastic.

If we can have two gloves Gainey we now have Gangnam Huh.
Pure dead brilliant.
Colin that is James Hahn. Get your Korean American golfers correct please.

great spot of entertainment! Encore!!

The song does nothing for me - mesmerized by how it became so popular.

That said, he totally, dead-on, friggin nails it. Awesome. I love the moments when golf are cool...I may have to host a viewing party for the Waste Management Open next year.

Awesome. I'd like to see more golfers loosen up!

The reason it was so great is that he can actually dance a little bit. If someone with inferior dance moves tried to pull that off, especially on the 16th, it could be ugly.
In 30 seconds he changed his career. From this point onward, big crowds will be following him, calling for an encore, cheering every made putt, egging him on to Just Do It! every chance he gets. If he isn't already on the Nike payroll, he will be soon, riding his sexy-lady pony with Phil-Knight-stuffed saddlebags into the sunset...

Good for him.

I know the masters helps bring people to the game, but this will help even more, can we get direct tv to do just the 16 hole like they do the majors?
