Look out for the parallel bars

By Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM 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?"
