Schoolboy Q‘s passion for golf continues to bring bags to the table as he appears in Topgolf’s new global campaign.
The company launched their ‘Come Play Around’ campaign on Tuesday (November 15), and in addition to Q, it includes appearances from sports personalities like Erin Andrews, Charissa Thompson, Kelly Stafford and more. In a statement, Topgolf expressed their desire to showcase and celebrate inclusivity in the new advertising spaces.
“Our brand’s core belief centers around the limitless power of play, and this campaign was created as a simple invitation to do just that – come play with us and have fun,” said Chief Brand Officer Geoff Cottrill. “We’re making the game of golf more inclusive and open for all to enjoy, and this campaign celebrates diverse people and personalities from around the world who come together and enjoy a little golf… and a little of our ‘non-golf.'”
The appearance comes just months after Q made a similar cameo in new commercial for PGA Tour 2K23 together with golf legend Tiger Woods. And just before that The “Collard Greens” rapper was tapped by Nike to star in a commercial chronicling Woods’ career.
While will compete in the 2022 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in California earlier this year, Q described how the sport changed his entire mindset.
“Coming from the life I had, I never thought about playing golf,” he said. “I went into it and it changed my mentality, it let me learn about myself as a person. Like that’s why certain things in my life go bad or certain things go well because of the attitude thing . It fixed my attitude in life. It fixed a whole lot of things about me in life.
“Life is a game of golf. Some good shots, some bad shots,” he continued. “But most importantly, keep going because you never know. Don’t give up because you’re in the sand on your fourth shot, you can chip it in. It just taught me a lot about life, you feel me?”
However, music is still on the agenda for Q. Groovy Q resurfaced in April with the release of his “Soccer Dad” single, produced by Tae Beast, DJ Fu and Skhye Hutch. ONE new album has been on the way for some time, but no official release date has been set.
