Avid golfer JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE’s dream of hitting the U.S. Open course at Torrey Pines, California was ruined by his allergies.
The pop superstar joined Jessica Simpson’s boyfriend Tony Romo and TV presenter Matt Lauer for the Golf Digest U.S. Open Challenge last week (06Jun08) and though he managed to break 100, the experience wasn’t what he hoped it would be.
Timberlake says, «It was awesome but, to be honest man, I had one of the worst allergy attacks I’ve ever had on that course.
«They let the grass grow up so high and I almost dropped out because, in between every shot, I’m sneezing.
«Tony (Romo) finally looked at me and he was like, ‘Man, are you OK?’ It was fun and I got to play the course all that week.»
And the fact that he scored 98 through 18 holes was a major achievement for the singer.
He explains, «The USGA (United States Golf Association) does such an amazing job in preparing nature, preparing the elements against the players.
«Someone very high up in the USGA told me they suspect the average score of a pro to be 75, so they said if a four day total of under par wins they would be surprised. They feel they’ve sculpted the toughest U.S. Open course in the history of the game at Torrey Pines.»
Tiger Woods and the world’s best golfers will tee off at Torrey Pines on Thursday (12Jun08).
