We all know him for his country music, but get this self-proclaimed “crappy golfer” on a professional course and an audience – and he will drop jaws

Kid Rock, who recently finished up one stadium tour and announced another, has been one of the most notable Southern rock figures to hit the stage in decades.

He’s been known for many different parts of his life, was once married to Pamela Anderson, stirred up a whirlwind after hinting he might run for Senate, and is best-known for his holds-nothing-back music. 

A Return To The Green

The “American Rock ‘n Roll” singer took up a long putt shot in front of legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus during the 2018 Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf Shootout. 

“Excited to be headed back to Big Cedar Lodge,” he said on Instagram. “And defend my and Jack Nicklaus’ title! (Yes that is still very surreal to me as a crappy golfer!)”



Beyond just heading back to the event to defend his title, he also showed off some unexpected skills that left Nicklaus with his jaw on the floor and a smile on his face! 

What He Did That Shocked Everyone

On one hole, this 47-year-old multi-talented musician lined up to sink a ball on a 40-foot stretch of putting green that had a lot of folks doubting he’d make it. 

As Nicklaus watched from behind, he took the stroke and tapped the ball sending it arching out to the left…but it quickly curved back and slowly rolled into the cup! 

The crowd erupted in soft clapping and Nicklaus high-fived Kid Rock for his hugely-impressive golf game. They ultimately lost to Larry the Cable Guy, but this definitely was a win in their book!
