Best celebrity golfer momentsFebruary 9, 2018 The Scoop
From Justin Timberlake getting a slap to Barack Obama gatecrashing a wedding, Quick 9 runs down some of the more extraordinary moments in the world of celebrity golf
It’s not unusual…
Who doesn’t love Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?
Alfonso Ribeiro, who played the part of the lovable character in the popular 90s show starring Will Smith, busted out his signature Carlton Dance alongside Justin Timberlake and basketball star Steph Curry at the American Century Championship in 2015.
Obama the wedding crasher
Many couples have funny or interesting wedding stories but this one tops the lot. Stephanie and Brian Tobe were about to say their vows at Torrey Pines golf course in California at an altar overlooking the 18th green when the 44th President of the United States strolled on to the green.
Noticing Obama finishing off his round, the couple sprinted down to the green to get their picture snapped with America’s first African-American leader. Wedding pictures don’t get any better
The human chain
One of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am’s greatest moments arrived in 1987. Actor Jack Lemmon looked to attempt a shot from the edge of a cliff and his playing partners Clint Eastwood, Peter Jacobsen and Greg Norman, plus Norman’s caddie, Pete Bender, all clutched each other’s belts to prevent Lemmon from toppling over the edge.
Lemmon somehow knocked the ball back into play…but then shanked his next shot into the Pacific.
