Taylor Swift has begun her latest tour with its first concert in Glendale, Arizona. Dubbed ‘The Eras Tour’, the upcoming series of concerts will cover songs from all her previous albums from different eras. While the first event in Arizona may have been a masterpiece, it was a golf-related moment that took over the internet.

Swift hasn’t been on tour since 2018, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Because of this, the singer hasn’t gone on tour for her previous three albums. But she decided to give her fans a show with songs from all her past albums. While singing her most notable song ‘Blank Space’, Swift brought a golf club to the stage leaving fans mesmerised.

The singer performed at a sold-out State Farm Arena in Glendale, Arizona. While reminiscing songs from her previous albums, Swift then began singing songs from her album, ‘1989’, released in 2014. One of the most notable songs from the album was ‘Blank Space’, which spent seven weeks at the top of the charts on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Though the lyrics of the song with Taylor Swift’s melodious voice may have won hearts, it was the video of the song that many golf fans remember the singer for. At the end of Blank Space’s music video, Taylor is seen smashing the car of her boyfriend with a golf club. Nine years after the release of the video, Swift paid a tribute to the iconic scene in her latest concert at the Eras Tour.

While singing the song in Glendale, the 33-year-old brought a pink color golf club. Though it may have excited the audience in attendance at the State Farm Arena, golf fans back home had a humorous take on the video. “Why is she holding a 7 iron”, asked one fan, while the other wrote, “Tigers worst nightmare”.

Another user passed a witty remark on the singer’s pink golf club with the prominent golf equipment brand by commenting, “Wow so this was Taylor made”. One user gave Swift a pro golf hint to ‘protect the ankles’. Another comment questioned Taylor’s golfing abilities by asking, “Yeah but can she putt?”. Well, is she good at golf? It is still unknown.
