Celebrity Golf Handicaps

(This post has been updated by a new list – See Celebrity Golf Handicaps (updated))

There are quite a few that surprised me. I don’t know how I missed out on the fact that my new favorite NFL quarterback has mad skills on the links. I’m also pretty proud of the fact that I can outplay some folks like Costner, Murray and Will Smith, all who I thought were pretty decent golfers. Of course, that’s based on handicap alone. I’d almost definitely choke if I were to actually play them in person.

  1. I don’t understand this list. I thought Dennis Quaid was #1 and Thomas Gibson was #2, with Samuel Jackson right in there with them. I don’t even see him on the list, yet there are several on the list who, although excellent, are now deceased. I also believe that Cheryl Ladd ranks much higher.

    It would help to know the date of the list you took this from.

    Thanks.

  2. You are probably right about this list either being dated or just wrong altogether. I took it from List after List which I just stumbled across. I now question the source so I am posting the lists recently updated by Golf Digest in a new post.

    Thanks for catching this.
