We all know how much celebrities love their golf. We even celebrate the fact in our world famous TG Twenty magazine features! Well no one loves their golf right now more than global pop megastar Justin Timberlake.
The chart-topping star and ex-squeeze of Britney Spears has played golf since he was 10 years old and plays as much as he possibly can. But lately, his passion for the game has moved to a whole new level, with his inaugral PGA Tour event: the catchily named Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, recently held in Las Vegas. Now, the mad keen six handicapper has stepped into tour pro territory by signing a sponsorship deal with manufacturing giants Callaway!
Last month, 27 year old Timberlake signed an agreement to play the Company’s equipment and carry a Callaway branded golf bag. After a custom fitting session with Callaway Golf’s Tour Fit Van in Arizona, he now has a set of the latest Callaway clubs perfectly suited for his swing.
He’s playing the new FT-iQ Driver , an FT-i Squareway 3-wood, a 3H FT Hybrid, FT Irons, X-Forged Wedges and Tour i Series Golf Balls.
“Golf has become an increasingly important part of my life and this new partnership with Callaway allows me to take my game to the next level,” Timberlake said. “There’s nothing like hitting the ball perfectly—I’m hooked on that feeling. With Callaway’s help, I’m hoping to experience that more often.”
In an ever celebrity-conscious world, golf brands are using famous people to create interest in their products and inspire more young people to take up the game. Justin wasted no time in helping to promote their new 2009 range and followed up a concert in New York by starring at the launch of Callaway’s latest FT-iQ Driver . Check out the pics to see him in action!
