LA JOLLA, Calif. -- Will the
"snakeshaker" re-appear? What about that red wetsuit and the
helmet? We'll know early this week when Ben Crane releases his
newest video prior to the first round of the Farmers Insurance
Open. Crane, though, isn't revealing much about what we'll see in
the follow-up to his popular workout and slow-play creations.

"I used to be a gymnast -- that's all I'll say," Crane said
with a knowing smile, playfully trying to heighten the suspense.
So, does he know American gymnasts Morgan and Paul Hamm, a
three-time Olympic medalist? Not yet, he said. "But they're
probably going to want to get together after this," Crane added.
"Compete a little bit." Crane also revealed that the "Golf Boys" --
the outrageous band he put together with Bubba Watson, Hunter Mahan
and Rickie Fowler -- hope to put another video together soon. "We
have got a couple hurdles to clear, I won't talk about those, but,
yes, we're trying to get another one done and we'll see if
everything happens," Crane said, talking like a Hollywood producer.
Crane said the first "Golf Boys" video, where the group, clad in a
mixture of fur, overalls and the $5 wetsuit, sang a song entitled
"Oh, Oh, Oh," came together like "magic." When the videos make his
wife, Heather, laugh, Crane says he knows he has a hit on his
hands. "I just watched the making of for the second time, I watched
it like after we made it and I watched it like three days ago, and
I'm like, oh, my gosh, that's really good," Crane said. "It's like
funny. And I really enjoyed it. "So, yeah, it just came off,
I don't know if we can match it. I don't even know if we should
try. We're going to go a slightly different direction. ... The
sequel is never as good, but we got to give it a go, right?"
