Ladies European Tour golfer meets 1990s rap song because coronavirus

Felicity Johnson points to a flagstick. Then a pull cart. And finally a door at a clubhouse.

All while, of course, M.C. Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This” plays in the background.

A Ladies European Tour golfer meets an early 1990s rap song to meet a global pandemic. And it works perfectly. What a time we’re living in.

With the majority of professional golf on hiatus due to the coronavirus, the LET took to social media this week for the #HeadcoverKaraokeChallenge. The rules — sing 15 seconds of a song while using a driver headcover as the mic, post the video to social media, then challenge three friends.

In her post just over a week ago, Johnson combined the circumstances that brought it all together.

“The lack of singing is a blessing for all concerned….” she tweeted. “I nominate @MSkarpnord @hannahgreengolf @BJMgolf to showcase their talents next. Shout out to my production manager @lukej5678 #HeadcoverKaraokeChallenge #StayAtHome #StayAtHomeChallange #keepthecoursesopen @LETgolf.”

Laura Murray joined in on the theme, adjusting the lyrics to Faith Hill’s “There You’ll Be” to sing “I’ll keep a bottle of this with me,” while holding a surface cleaner. Leján Lewthwaite and Natasha Fear went with Disney, while Annika Sorenstam and Gabs Cowley added family members. And Alison Whitaker used paper instruments and slow-motion video for Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On.”
