Drake latest in hip-hop royalty showing love for golf

There seems to be somewhat of an upsurge regarding golf and the hip-hop world. Well, kinda. You may remember Snoop Dogg lending his brand to golf a couple of years ago in a bid to make golf slightly cooler. Not many people saw it. At least, not the ones that needed to. Because, guess what, they don’t read Golf Digest.

Schoolboy Q is a well-known humper and has teamed up with ground-breakers Malbon Golf. He’s actually a golfer, trying to play once a day, and wrote much of his new album on the links. He’s what we need a lot more of. Scarface is into it. Tyler the Creator. The list goes on.

Drake has now landed on the scene. He was papped on the course – whether he actually hit a shot is unknown – double gloving it, teeing up really high on either the fairway or a green with an iron in hand. He’s obviously not a golfer which will rub some up the wrong way, but we should be celebrating all the credible exposure we can get at this point.
