Everyone strives to play like Tiger Woods, the undisputed king of golf. And while it is common for aspiring professionals to yearn to be like the man himself, we recently had a DJ and record producer claim he was as good as Tiger! Jokingly, of course, DJ Khaled!

Golf is, undeniably, one of the most popular sports amongst celebrities. From Hollywood stars, music artists, to even American Presidents, many have been spotted on the course and are avid golfers. This time, it was DJ Khaled, an American DJ, record executive, and record producer. After emerging on the scene in the 1990s as a radio host, he gradually moved up the ranks and released his own debut studio album, gaining tremendous success.

This, however, is not his first stint with golf. Last year, he released a song called ‘Let It Go’, as a part of the album ‘Khaled Khaled’, featuring Justin Bieber and 21 Savage. The entire video for this was shot in a golf course, with the superstars driving around in a golf cart and swinging around. For a golfer who is also a fan of these artists, it is a treat to the eyes! Moreover, Khaled admitted that the video was “one of my favourite videos ever!”
