There are many celebrity golfers whose on-screen persona would lend itself well to being your partner.

 

We’ve all seen celebrity golfers we recognise from film or from the stage taking part in a Pro-Am to satisfy their inner Jack Nicklaus.

So, who would be your ideal celebrity partner on the course in a fourball?

We’ve narrowed it down to four celebrities whose on-screen persona would lend itself well to being your golf partner.

 

Samuel L Jackson

Now here’s a man who you’d want on your side.

His imposing size and undoubted confidence can only help you win your match. He won’t hold back with his honest opinions either. If your club selection is wrong, you’d imagine he’d be the man to tell you what needs doing.

Opposition would be afraid to play him. If we’ve learned anything from his roles in Pulp Fiction and the Avengers, it’s that this is a man who can, when called upon, make knees, and hopefully hands, quiver.

Bill Murray

This next celebrity would be perfect if things weren’t going to plan. He’s bound to make you see the funny side.

We’ve all had rounds – probably more often than not – where nothing is going right. When we’re being too firm with putts and being wild with our swing there’s little to calm us down.

Bill Murray would see to that. His humourous anecdotes would keep you smiling. If that fails you could always ask him about the chances of a Ghostbusters remake.

Hugh Grant

If you needed someone to lull the opposition into a false sense of security, Hugh is your man.

We know him as very polite, slightly bumbling characters from Notting Hill and Four Weddings And A Funeral. This can be used as an advantage.

The opposition will think he’s as indecisive as his characters and that’s when he shows his golfing pedigree. This tactic might be found out early on but it would at least give you a chance to go a couple of holes up.

Clint Eastwood

As we’ve seen from his roles in A Fistful of Dollars and Million Dollar Baby, Clint can play the silent and unpredictable type.

While it might be handy for him to let you in on what shot he’s thinking of playing, he’ll keep the opposition guessing with his cool exterior.

He’s still got the fear factor, too. The perfect partner.
