If you’ve played golf and enjoy the game, you are a golfer!
That’s right, you are a golfer whether you’ve swung a club just handful of times, or play all year round – and you’re in great company.
We’re taking a look at a few of our favorite female celebrity golfers. Each at different stages and with unique stories about their introduction to the game, they all have the one thing in common: they’ve been bitten by the golf bug.
Miss America titleholder Kira Kazanstev has a golf story that many who leave the game at a young age can relate to.
“Golf has been an incredible opportunity for me both in my personal and professional life,” she said. “My game is better than ever, and I am loving every second of it. It has allowed me to travel and meet people that I could never have experienced without golf and I am so thankful to the game”.
Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria is a long-time golfer. This picture was snapped back in 2002 during comedian George Lopez’s annual Celebrity Golf Classic in Toluca Lake.
At one point in her golfing career, Eva was named lead ambassador for the Callaway Golf Foundation appearing in both TV and print public service announcements to aid in educating women and raising ovarian cancer awareness.
Former Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice didn’t pick up the game until 50, proving it’s really never too late to start.
In 2012, she reported getting her handicap down to a 14 and cites her driving and putting as the strongest part of her game. If she could get better with her irons and wedges, she says her handicap would improve tremendously. Dr. Rice also became one of the first female members of Augusta National Golf Course, home of the Master’s Tournament.
Condoleezza sat down with the Golf Channel‘s David Feherty for an interview about her love for the game last May:
Cameron Diaz is an avid golfer who learned to play on the set of her hit romantic-comedy There’s Something about Mary. Since her initial foray into golf she’s established a 36 handicap.
Enjoy this fun clip of the golf fanatic during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon where she competed head-to-head in a rollerskate golf course race…Cameron won. 🙂
Jessica Alba is a huge fan of golf and also participated in the 2014 Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Amtournament. Greg Norman was there as Alba’s coach for the golf event.
Jessica talks about learning the game with her Dad in an interview with ESPN last April.
