The popularity of golf is growing everyday, especially in the celebrity world. Having played now for several years, JT (Justin Timberlake) is no exception to this celebrity sports trend. Below is some great footage of JT in the pebble beach pro am.
His swing is actually pretty good. From looking at him play I would estimate his handicap to be somewhere between 10 and a 16 though I could be wrong. At the end of the clip the commentators claim his handicap is 4, but I don’t quite believe that. Regardless, there is something strangely satisfying about celebrities playing golf. It makes them seem a lot more normal, mainly because golf is just so humbling.
The following footage shows Ellen De Generes and Timberlake messing around on the course, doing the entertainment thing and the golf thing.
It’s obvious that his entertainment value exceed his golfing ability, but still, he clearly loves the game and he can play a massive role in reinventing the image of golf which remains clouded in chauvinism and ridiculous traditions.
