Gangnam Style on the PGA tour

The PGA recently hit Scottsdale. Just in case you did not know the 16th hole is one of the most frantic in the whole tournament. Players who hit the green on the par 3 hole are praised while those who donít are booed. All players who do hit the green do some sort of celebration and this time around one of the golfers danced the gangnam style.

In case you live under a rock -- which isn't likely the case if you're reading this -- you know that there's no bigger party in professional golf than on the par-3 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale. The atmosphere is that of a frat party. If you think a good shot is going to be greeted with a slow, "golf-clap," here, you're going to be extremely disappointed. This is the PGA Tour's version of Animal House.

Players that simply hit the green are given the loudest standing ovation they'll hear all year. Players that miss the green... well, they get rained upon with boos.

Over the years, No. 16 has gone from hectic to downright chaos -- the good, fun kind. Players have embraced it, endearing themselves to fans with various antics, whether it be handing out free hats, sunglasses (which Hunter Mahan did on Saturday), or actually getting on a microphone and singing like half of the golf, boy-band, "The Golf Boys" Bubba Watson and Ben Crane did after hitting their respective tee shots in 2012. The fans eat it up.
