10 Musicians Who Can Also Play Golf

Golf and music have always had a unique relationship. Both are forms of art and both, if done right, can be beautiful. However, golf is an escape for those who don’t play it professionally, and some musicians take full advantage, especially when they’re out on tour.

For them, it’s a reprieve from the grind. As multiple Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, and actor Justin Timberlake stated, “you have a lot of time on these tours. As Alice Cooper said, you can either drink all day or golf.”

So take a look at 10 of the finest musician golfers.

Handicap: 18

Snoop Dogg may not be the best golfer in the world, but there’s no doubt he enjoys the game. The 15-time Grammy nominee rapper and actor says he shoots “about 90,” which by all standards, isn’t that bad. Also, he’s a big fan of Tiger Woods. In fact, he went on record saying that golf is “garbage” without the 14-time major winner playing.

Willie Nelson

Handicap: 16

The ageless Willie Nelson loves to get out to the course whenever he’s got free time. In fact, he’s been on record saying “All I do is play music and golf.” The 14-time Grammy winner owns a course in Texas. “Par is whatever Willie shoots,” says the pro.

Bob Seger

Handicap: 16

Grammy winner and Rock and Roll and Songwriters Hall of Famer Bob Seger enjoys his time on the course whenever he’s not performing. Back in 2009, he played the Buick Open pro-am with Tiger Woods which made for a great show.

Handicap: 15

It’s clear from the above photo that the Super Bowl is not the only sporting event that Adam Levine likes to attend shirtless. The lead singer of 3-time Grammy-winning band Maroon 5 plays to a modest 15 handicap, but is always looking to improve his game. Back in 2012, he was celebrity student on Golf Channel’s The Haney Project and came out a better golfer. He’s been known to play a pro-am or two as well.

Roger Waters

Handicap: 12

73-year-old Rock-and-Roll Hall of Famer and Grammy winner Roger Waters of the legendary band Pink Floyd loves to golf his ball when he’s not playing music. He belongs to the exclusive National Golf Links of America located out on Long Island, New York.

It’s no surprise that the man who made the album “Sports” is also a regular on the golf course. Grammy winner Huey Lewis can be found at many pro-ams when he’s not with his band, and its easy can see why. Along with a great voice, he’s got a passion for the game and pretty good swing.

Handicap: 0.6

Grammy-winning saxophonist Kenny G can almost play golf better than he can play the instrument. Ironically in high school, he made the golf team over the jazz band. Checking in at a sub-one handicap, he’s a member of Sherwood Country Club, where he is a club-stroke champion. Kenny is also usually a staple at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
