Golf songs in this list will not make the hit parade.  

However, if you are a golfer, you will appreciate the words, as we all want to be “Straight Down the Middle,” “Hit it Hard,” and the humor in Peter Jacobson’s “Love the one you Whiff”  Of course I won’t even mention the Top 5 Worst golf songs, (but you can check them out at the bottom of the page) and hopefully we won’t have to hear to them anytime soon!  

Thanks to Josh Sens of for this fun compilation!

Bing Crosby’s enjoyable recording of “Straight Down The Middle” from 31/12/1957. The song was sung by Crosby and Hope for a short 1948 film called “Honor Caddy” with Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Ben Hogan and Sam Snead. It’s thought that this was the first ever song written about golf.

1. Straight Down the Middle, by Bing Crosby

2. Hit it Hard, by John Daly

The man whose very life is a country song has penned some soulful ditties of his own. His finest might be this hard-driving number, an unrepentant meditation on mistakes made and moving on. “Most people would have given up by now / All the rough I’ve seen / All the ups and downs.” Lyrics so heartfelt, we forgive Long John the heavy-handed metaphor.

3. Bohemian Golfing Rhapsody, by Nigel Tait

Seven-plus minutes of rhapsodic harmonizing, and a slickly produced video to boot.

4. Love the One You Whiff, by Jake Trout and the Flounders

Of all the golf-centric spoofs that Peter Jacobsen and his bandmates have released, this catchy track may be the punniest. “You swing / It’s still on that tee / It sure is better than hitting three / And as you stand there, feeling like a stiff, you better, love the one you whiff.” Eat your heart out, Weird Al Yankovic.
