No one has ever accused professional golfers of being great dancers — heck, they can hardly pull off a relatively simple high-five without going viral for all the wrong reasons — so any excuse to get some of the best players to ever tee it up to make a fool out of themselves in the name of promotion we’re happy to consume.
The PGA Tour Champions is hosting their version of the Tour Championship this week at Pheonix Country Club for the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, and in anticipation of the release of next year’s schedule, the folks at the Tour enlisted some of the biggest names on the senior circuit to attempt to mimic the dance moves of characters from the video game sensation “Fortnite.”
Bernhard Langer, Tim Petrovic, Paul Broadhurst, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Tom Lehman, Esteban Toledo, Kevin Sutherland and Jerry Smith took shots at making it rain, the floss and more in a wildly entertaining — and likely embarrassing for their wives, friends and family members — video.
Naturally, Jimenez was one of the best, but Broadhurst may have nailed his move the best. Take a look at this side-by-side screengrab.
The Tour took advantage of its viral nature to connect its 2019 schedule while pumping up the newest crop of 50-and-over players, which will include major champions Retief Goosen and Angel Cabrera.
We're dancing into the 2019 season.

“I am excited to begin this new chapter in my career and eager to compete alongside my peers on PGA TOUR Champions,” Goosen said in the release. “The level of competition on this Tour is incredible and creates great drama for fans around the world each week, and I cannot wait to be a part of it.”
Can’t wait to see the Goose take part in part two of the Fortnite dance-off.
