Here’s the walk-up song for every team at the Zurich Classic

April 25, 2018

In 2017, the Zurich Classic decided to shake things up in a big way by changing to a two-player team format. This year, the event’s organizers are continuing that tradition of innovation by allowing teams who make the cut to stroll to the tee to the song of their choice, much like they do in baseball.

On Tuesday, the PGA Tour released the players’ choices for walk-up songs, and, as to be expected, the selections are all over the place. Padraig Harrington and Shane Lowry chose a song from fellow Irishmen U2. While U2 is probably the most famous band to come from the Emerald Isle, the specific song choice is not exactly the band’s most critically-acclaimed. (That would be “Beautiful Day” from their 2000 album All That You Can’t Leave Behind)

There were also multiple double-ups. Zach Johnson and Jonathan Byrd chose “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC, as did Shawn Stefani and John Rollins. The teams of Charley Hoffman/Nick Watney and Brendan Steele/Jamie Lovemark both picked ‘California Love” by Tupac. Three teams are going with Metallica on the first tee.

But not every team picked music from decades ago: teams Gary Woodland/Daniel Berger and Brandon Harkins/Lanto Griffin both picked tracks by chart-topping Canadian rapper Drake.
