Oh bull. Your own stupid theory was shot down so now you're trying to act as if you were secretly looking to prove something else? Get real.

Honestly, if he's doing some good for the game, I fail to see why you're getting your panties up in a bunch about him being on the cover of a magazine. I also read the article, and it has a lot to do with golf, so I don't understand why you're being such a snide jackass about the whole thing.

I pretty much agree with what everyone else has said so far.

However, it's been mentioned a couple of times already and I'll repeat it:

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE IS HOSTING A PGA EVENT LESS THAN ONE WEEK FROM TODAY.

http://www.jtshrinersopen.com/

That was the main reason he was featured in the magazine. The added benefit is that he, himself enjoys playing the game and is rather good at it. Beyond that, as others have mentioned, he's pumped millions into bettering the game.

This was not an attempt to bring young people to the game through JT, this was simply interviewing the celebrity host of an upcoming PGA Tour event.

Plain as day.

JYB, mang you've got some pretty strong anger about 'things' and I think you are aiming it in the wrong direction. You need to chill out out and reassess.

Seriously.

Justin Timberlake on the cover of GD is not a symbol of everything that's wrong in the world.

FAR more interesting than the Justin Timberlake story were the two golf architecture related articles by Ron Whitten in the same issue:

"Bunker Mentality"
a pictorial essay on various bunker styles.

"Big Mac, Little Greens + Wide-Open Spaces"
A look at modern course design and its links to the past with emphasis on the pioneering style of C.B. Macdonald and some of his "template" holes.

This statement is an attempt bailing out on the discussion because you have realized you have lost this debate and look like a complete jackass.

great, go ahead and keep sucking celebrities off in this bullcrap american celebrity driven culture.

Wow, such vehemence. Probably just a troll, but I'll take a bite.

Yeah, he's more talented, rich, good looking, etc. than I (and 99.9% of the world) will ever be, but he loves golf, just like all of us here. He knows the elation when you pure a shot and feels the frustration after playing poorly. If he wants to make golf cool, than I'm on his side, not on the side of a seemingly bitter golf crony. BTW, his real name is "Justin Randall Timberlake". Have fun, JG

    • After the All Star stuff tonight there was an hour long documentary (or Masterson application video, probably) on the amount of damage done to Connor McDavids knee in the final game of last season.  I'm not sure how you'd watch it in the States since it isn't on YouTube yet, but wow, just wow.    The Oilers picked up the rumored four million dollar tab for his rehab, and even still it's hard to believe he skated on opening day, let alone the preseason.   I already had a lot of respect for the guy, but after watching this it's shot through the roof now.
    • Day 16, January 24 2020.  Putting over the aluminum yardstick this evening after work.  Longest streak:  7 in a row, all 36" (at speed to go at least twice that far).
    • Got my first today! It was a pretty easy hole to birdie, but good to start it off right. 
    • I understand that.  But, if I’m striking the ball well one day, I tend to be striking the ball well for a time.  I’ll always take good ball striking over dumb luck, whether good or bad...
    • My golf season is starting in just under three weeks! What we’ll do is practice for a few weeks before our first match on March 2. Anytime we play, I’ll post about it here and on “What’d You Shoot Today?”. Also, if I have any crazy stories from practice, I’ll post those here as well. We do a lot of fun things at practice, from going out and playing a few holes to competitions on the practice green. Our favorite wager: pushups. I’ve got a few crazy stories from last year, so I can put those here too if you want! Definitely looking forward to the season. Just some info from last season: •My scoring average last season was something in the neighborhood of 48.5, with a low score of 45. Hoping to bring that average down to 45 this season. •We made it to regionals as a team last year as one of the top three teams in our conference. At regionals, we played okay, but came up well short, placing ninth out of 12. Top two teams go to state level, and top twelve individuals go to states as well, which leads me to my third point: •We had two of our team members (neither of which were me) go to states. And the final point: •I made a 10 on my last hole of the season. The last hole of regionals, with my family and just about the whole team watching. If you want to know the hole, look up Keith Hills Golf Club, Orange Course #9. Drive to the center of the fairway, then knocked one in the hazard. Dropped, then into the bunker. Took four to get out and onto the green, and then I two-putted. So, there you go. Looking forward to posting my performance this season!
