We all want to hang out with a celebrity.
In the golf world, playing an 18-hole round with a celebrity would be the coolest experience ever.
However, some celebrities aren’t the best at golf. Others could be decent, yet they have the personality of a Styrofoam cup.
So here are the four best celebrities to play golf with and who you can get to know after your round:
- Mark Wahlberg:
- The Boston native is quite the golfer. He plays to an 8.7 handicap and golfs very often. He recently posted an Instagram where he said his new swing coach wanted him to hit at least 150 balls a day no matter the weather. So it is safe to assume his handicap will be creeping down. But besides golf, Marky Mark is a family man who knows how to have fun and crack a few jokes. Who wouldn’t want to play a round with him?
- Matthew McConaughey:
- This famous celebrity is known for his acting, but the former high school golfer can hold his own on the course. He plays to an 8.6 handicap, so he may be giving you shots. Be ready to talk though, McConaughey is one of the nicest people on Earth and seems like the perfect guy to bring out with a round with friends.
- Bill Murray:
- He wasn’t on Caddieshack by chance. The 7.2 handicap will blow most amateurs away with his golf skills. He even has his own line of golf clothing, so you could say he is a pretty dedicated golfer. Maybe if you beat him in a match he will hook you up with some free swag.
- Samuel L. Jackson:
- You may know him for swearing every other word in movies. But on the golf course, you will probably be swearing more than him after bad shots. Topping a ball may be a little rare for the 6.9 handicap Jackson, and more likely for you. Being able to get full rotation on his “un-athletic” golf swing (as President Trump calls it), Jackson will take your money.
Celebrities have free time once a blue moon, and when they do, they are not too bad on the course.
