ScHoolboyQ has joined Justin Thomas, WWE wrestler Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, and actor Christopher McDonald aka Shooter McGavin in Happy Gilmore for the trailer of 2K’s new golf video game PGA Tour 2K21.
On Tuesday, the rapper shared a promo video for the upcoming PGA Tour (Professional Golfers’ Association Tour) 2K21 video game, which features him as a player teeing off against the professional golfer, wrestler, and actor.
“Let’s make this interesting,” ScHoolboy Q said in the clip. “Look what I found at the thrift store,” he continued as he holds up a yellow blazer jacket, not unlike the one Shooter McGavin lost to Happy Gilmore in the 1996 film. “I got this jacket and I got this game, too.”
In a throwback reference to Adam Sandler’s golf comedy flick, McDonald replied, “That doesn’t belong to you!”
Though golf may seem a stark contrast to the South Central Los Angeles native’s usual endeavours, the ‘Blank Face’ rapper is actually quite the aficionado, telling Golf Digest last year about how he got into playing the sport.
“It was a bet,” ScHoolboyQ began. “We were in the studio, and my boy starts talking crazy. He’s a fashion designer who grew up playing with his dad. He says golf’s too hard for me. Bets me 10 grand that I can’t make a birdie in two years. At this point, the only golfers I’d heard of were Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Arnold Palmer, and him only because of the drink.”
He added, “In less than 10 rounds I made a birdie, sank about a 70-foot putt, and it was over.”
Q also revealed that he often takes his golf clubs on tour and plays video games while on the road.
“Last summer on tour my assistant booked a course every day,” he said at the time. “She looks up courses online, and she knows I need the best of the best of the best. I try not to pay less than $200. I played a bunch of tour courses. I played where they had the Canadian Open [Glen Abbey Golf Club, outside Toronto]. Shot an 82 at that mother! I had three birdies, hella pars, a couple doubles.”
The video game is currently available for pre-order on pgatour.2k.com, but can be purchased for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch gaming systems from August 21st.
