Golf is a competitive sport that many also claim to be a great stress reliever. This explains why many Hollywood personalities choose to spend their time off their highly demanding on-camera stints in golf courses across the country or abroad.
New to the sport? Perhaps a visit to a putt putt golf here in Charlotte, NC will get you swinging in no time. Afterwards, see where this sport leads you.
But for now, here are four under-the-radar golf enthusiasts from tinsel town.
In movies, Hugh Grant normally plays ill at ease characters that are nonetheless oozing with charm. From “Four Weddings and a Funeral” to “Notting Hill,” the mumbling and self-deprecating British trope has been mastered by Hugh Grant like no other.
In the golf course, though, he is the exact opposite, with a handicap of seven on the list of his achievements. It is one place where he exudes control and confidence.
Haley Joel Osment
Him seeing dead people in M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Sixth Sense” catapulted Haley Joel Osment into stardom. Nowadays, he sees golf balls and has appeared in the “Celebrities in Golf Carts” series from the California Golf Association.
Zac Efron sure knows how to handle anything that’s round and bouncy. From the basketballs he tossed around in “High School Musical” to the golf balls he hit during his well-documented 2017 trip to Costa Rica with buddies Sean O’Pry and Conor Dwyer, there’s no denying that Zac is in control of his balls.
Jessica Alba has come a long way from being a “Dark Angel” to being a business mogul with a 1-Billion worth “Honest Company.” As if these are not enough feathers on her proverbial cap, she also happens to be a competitive golfer.
Golf seems like a rather interesting sport to pursue. If you wish to follow the steps of the aforementioned celebrities, you can always start small.
