In a recent video of Dave “Phoenix” Farrell, the bassist of Linkin Park, he revealed his passion for golf as well as his friendship with the professional golfer Brendan Steele.

They both live in Southern California, about 20 minutes of travel time from one other, and they enjoy relaxing at a golf course together in their leisure time. Dave loves watching and playing golf and is a 4-handicap player, who took part in the pro-am competition, while Brendan, the pro golfer who won a tournament in the PGA Tour, enjoys listening to Linkin Park. He goes to its concerts, as well, and a mutual friend, who is also a passionate golfer, introduced him to Dave backstage three years ago.

Linkin Park is an American band that has sold over 68 million albums worldwide and won two Grammy Awards. This is YouTube’s Linkin Park song with the most views:
