Justin Timberlake Buys The First Golf Course He Played
(starpulse.com ) - Justin Timberlake has bought the golf course his dad taught him to play the sport on - to save it from developers. Timberlake is a golf fanatic and plays off a handicap of six.
He confesses he only "got into" the sport six years ago, when he was 20 - but the childhood trip to the Memphis, Tennessee, course inspired him to rescue it from being turned into apartments.
Timberlake tells talk show host Jay Leno , "My dad taught me to hit a golf ball on this course, when I was 12 years old. They were going to auction it off and turn it into a development, so we swooped in and got it."
The singer is currently battling his mother's plans to name the course after the famous family, adding, "My mom wants it to be called 'Timberlake Trails' or something like that."
