Trending: What do you really want, Bubba... a hole in one or a number one?

 

It's a fair bet to assume that Bubba Watson is the first Masters champion to have been filmed rapping while wearing nothing but a pair of mangy dungarees. But rap in dungarees Watson did, as a quarter of one-off golfing supergroup The Golf Boys, alongside Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan and Ben Crane.

The track, an irono-dance number called "Oh Oh Oh" may well be the musical equivalent of Phil Mickelson's triple-bogey at hole four on Sunday night but, while it won't have LMFAO quaking in the clubhouse, it showcases a sense of humour not often seen on the greens of Augusta.

The Golf Boys aren't sport's only musical supergroup, though. ATP world number one doubles pair Bob and Mike Bryan have their own group, the Bryan Bros Band, and frequently recruit guests from the tennis tour. Indeed, their track "Autograph", which laments the lot of name-signing tennis pros, features guest raps from Nole Djokovic (passable) and Andy Murray (makes John Barnes sound like a member of The Pharcyde).

In the world of cricket, a mention too, must go to Australian fast bowler Brett Lee and his band Six And Out which also features Lee's all-rounder brother Shane and three other New South Wales cricketers. Six And Out's oeuvre includes the hits "Can't Bowl, Can't Throw", "Howzat" and "I've Been Dropped", which suggests a singularity of focus you'd expect from five dedicated professionals.

Obviously British football teams have formed supergroups – of a type – for decades by recording annual Cup Final songs but as far as a supergroup formed without the marketing department's gun-to-the-head goes, the nearest we've had is Hoddle and Waddle's "Diamond Lights".

Which probably suggests we're best leaving it to the Americans.
