9. Joe Pesci
Can you imagine just how fun it would be to have Joe Pesci join in your golf group? He admits to loving the sport, but just like you and me, finds it quite frustrating at times. Not only do we love Pesci for his award-winning performances in some of our favorite films, but also for his participation in the numerous charity golf outings he participates in.

To all you Beliebers out there, the next time you’re off scouting Justin Bieber, try searching for him on the golf course. Golf was one of his favorite childhood pastimes. Although he may not be as talented a golfer as he is a singer, it’s great to see him happily swinging away!
6. Adam Levine
Unbeknownst to the pop singer, golf was the sport that was missing in his life. Sometimes it takes a little push from our friends’ enjoyment of the sport to motivate us to step on the range. The Maroon 5 heartthrob took to his twitter back in 2011 to alert the world of his newfound passion. “Just tried golf. Not gonna lie. It’s totally awesome.”
5. Justin Timberlake
Our beloved Justin Timberlake is no amateur when it comes to his singing career or golf game! As an avid golfer with a single digit handicap, he has played in a number of major tournaments, proving to be a definite golf nut. There’s no denying that he takes his game very seriously, just look at that competitive expression!
4. Cameron Diaz
For a gal with as busy of a work schedule as the lovely Cameron Diaz, her status as an avid golfer definitely deserves a round of applause. The talented actress shows off her swing in the comedy, “There’s Something About Mary,” which happens to be the set she fell in love with the game. In a 2011 interview with Starpulse.com, Diaz says that golf is “…kind of like crack cocaine to me.” Seems like the sport loves to creep into our lives in very sneaky ways!
3. Matthew McConaughey

1. Samuel L. Jackson
See that broad smile gracing Jackson’s face? It’s not just because he loves golf, he’s addicted to it. To ensure that he’s able to do what he loves, Jackson arranges to play golf at least twice a week with a golf clause written into his Hollywood contracts. That’s some serious dedication!
