Timed to coincide with the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas (a PGA Tour event) October 13-19, which Timberlake will host for the first time this year, the cover story details Timberlake’s love for the game and how it connects him to family and friends.
“For me, golf is one of those things where you go out and forget about everything else,” Timberlake tells the magazine. “I never really took up the game until about six or seven years ago. I remember I hit one amazing shot off the tee, straight down the middle. I got to thinking maybe I could play this game.”
In the story, Timberlake also reveals details about the public golf course in Memphis, Mirimichi Lakes, which he and his parents are renovating. The course is being rebuilt to encourage beginners and families to take up the game and is scheduled to reopen in July 2009.
The Golf Digest issue, on newsstands October 7, also ranks the best golfers in studio and on stage in the magazine’s second “Top 100 In Music” list.
